9 Projects You Can Do to Become a Front-End Master

Whether you’re a beginner programmer or a professional programmer. To stay up with the quick changes in this business, it is necessary to acquire new concepts, languages, and frameworks.

Take, for example, React, which was only open-sourced by Facebook four years ago but has already established itself as the go-to framework for JavaScript developers all around the world.

Vue and Angular, on the other hand, have their own real followings. There’s also Svelte, as well as universal frameworks like Next.js or Nuxt.js, Gatsby, Gridsome, Quasar, and so on.

Aside from doing your study with good, old JS, if you want to shine as an excellent JavaScript developer, you should at least have some expertise with other frameworks and libraries.

I’ve selected 9 projects to help you become Frontend Masters, each with its own theme and distinct JavaScript framework or library as a tech stack that you can build and add to your portfolio. Remember that nothing is more beneficial to you than actually generating items, so sharpen your mind and go to work!
