    Social Driver is a digital agency based in Washinton, DC, and was founded in 2011. They have about 50 employees that specialize in social media marketing, web design, and web development for a wide range of businesses focusing on health care & medical, non-profit, and business services industries.

    Leukemia & Lymphoma Society tapped Social Driver to create an animated video for their nonprofit organization. The team wrote up a script and pre-and post-produced a two-minute video using the client's resources. Social Driver was able to take a topic that’s hard to capture in a visual medium and translate it into moving yet informative video. The team had an excellent command of the project details and timelines and kept everything moving along.

What Is Front End Web Development?

Front-end web development is the practice of implementing a graphical user interface (GUI) that interacts with the back-end components of a web application. Front-end development is what users see when engaging with websites and applications. Information gathered from people engaging with the front end of a website interacts with the database or server-side information that provides a website or application its functionality.

Front-end development is the domain of front-end designers and programmers responsible for the look and feel of websites and web applications. This type of development applies to how users view websites on desktop computers and mobile devices, in addition to the experience a user has when interacting with the visual interface.

What Are the Best Front End Web Development Languages?

The best front-end web development languages are:

  1. JavaScript
  2. CSS
  3. HTML
  4. SAAS
  5. React
  6. TypeScript

JavaScript

Most websites use JavaScript in one form or another, as it remains one of the most popular programming languages available for creating dynamic and responsive web pages. JavaScript is an excellent language for beginners to learn.

CSS

Developers use CSS, or cascading style sheets, to direct how HTML elements on a website look on a screen. CSS determines the overall appearance, colors, spacing, and fonts for a website and facilitates embedding images, videos, and other media.

HTML

Short for HyperText Markup Language, HTML is a standard markup language that determines the structure of a web page and how it will look within a browser. Considered a building block of web development, HTML integrates with other programming languages to develop websites.

SAAS

Similar to CSS, Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets (SAAS) offer several components, such as variables, nested rules, and mix-ins, resulting in a smoother front-end experience. SASS features clear code, extensive frameworks, and reusable features.

React

A JavaScript and interface library created by Facebook, React helps developers build dynamic web pages that are fast and switch between various elements cleanly. React is simple to use and an open-source language with a large community.

TypeScript

You can use TypeScript and JavaScript together. In addition, TypeScript features object-oriented programming and has the ability to simplify coding and debugging simultaneously, making for a more efficient development process.
