Jeremy Keith speaks the truth

I try not to get too attached to specific tools or tricks. Today’s best practice is tomorrow’s anti-pattern. You get all set up with Photoshop, Sublime Text, and Grunt only to find out that they’ve been replaced by Sketch, Atom, and Gulp. Don’t get me started on JavaScript libraries!

Instead of focusing on particular tools or trends, I find it more useful to get acquainted with design principles, color theory, contrast, typography — and when it comes to web development, progressive enhancement is a principle that has stood me in very good stead over the years.

The three tools I really can’t work without are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript… and even that’s a bit of a stretch because I don’t always need JavaScript.
