Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a really useful set of roadmaps describing what you need to learn if you are pursuing different career paths in web development - Frontend (ie., the side that runs on the browser), Backend (ie., the side that runs on the web server), and DevOps. It should be noted that this is only a high-level view; for each item in the diagram there is a constellation of frameworks, templates, and helper applications (you can get a sense of this by looking at the React roadmap on the website). But it's interesting to see just how far this discipline has grown since the days of cobbling together some HTML in a text editor and getting it to display in a web browser. I found this resource via the GitHub site but it's the same in both places.
