what’s new in the world of wev dev?

Just as you have mastered the intricacies of your favourite framework, library or tool you can guarantee that an update has been introduced. This usually means there is more to learn. Hopefully, the update will provide a new, improved version that will improve your workflow and productivity to get an end result quicker. We know that this is not the opinion of everyone, but if you are going to continue using a specific framework, library or tool, you really need to take a look at the latest version.

Let’s face it, those initial creative answers MIGHT be brilliant — but they might also be a little bit off-brief” Most designers are in the ideas business. This means that our hunger for the daring, disruptive and different is insatiable — and every day, a whole industry of magazines, blogs, awards schemes and Insta-feeds relentlessly pump out shiny, perfectly-formed ideas that are eye-candy for us.
