Over the years as a web designer and developer, I’ve come across a number of different websites and resources that assist with productivity and inspiration. Below is a list of the top 10 websites I think you should take a look at if you’re web designer and/or developer. Whether you’re just starting out or you’re a professional who’s been in the industry for years – I’m confident you’ll enjoy looking through the below:

1) GitHub

Mainly for developers, GitHub isn’t just great for collaborating on projects where multiple developers are involved. I am often the only developer on a project and use GitHub as a tool to backup my code.

2) Wunderlist

This website/app is great for writing todo lists. I use this not only for my working life, but to also keep my personal life on track. It’s pretty similar to the many other todo list apps in existence, but the elegant design drawn me towards this one.

3) Codrops

While great for many things including news and resources, my favourite part of Codrops is their how-to articles and demos. There are a tonne of beautiful CSS experiments and examples on there that any designer or developer could embrace

4) Web Designer News

This site does not publish articles itself, but rather curates them from other trusted sites. It’s great resource for easily hunting down the latest news in the industry.

5) Stack Overflow

This had to be included really. My go to platform for any development or programming related problem.

6) Scotch

A library of super well written articles and tutorials on all things web dev.

7) CodyHouse

Pretty much the same reason as Codrops but different experiments.

8) Asana

Perfect for managing multiple ongoing projects. You can add tasks, sub tasks, attachments, assigned to other people if working in a team, etc.

9) CSS Winner

Awards are given every day to well designed websites. Browsing through the award winners tends to give you great design inspiration for your next website.

10) Smashing Magazine

Full of coding news, tutorials, tips, and more. Reading this daily will sure help to keep you in the know.
