SOME TECHNIQUES TO SAVE TIME FOR WEB DEVELOPMENT AND WEB DESIGNAs we all know that time is money, so time management in all aspect is good for both professional general person. If we always maintain our regular task on time, it will help us to be confident. It will give us some opportunities to learn about new technologies and plan our future work. Now if we think about web developer & web designer, they must know how to save time when they work for client’s project and personal task too. Here I will share some ideas and techniques which will save time for their work process and produce a better result for both small and big projects.
Very clear thinking about the project:When we start working on a project we must have clear thought about what we will do in the next few days for that project. If you study the project documentation or understand actual requirement and think accordingly to that, it will take less time to build the website/application.
Now how it takes less time? — If we properly understand the instructions and follow them on design and development process, the output of this process will be 90% correct in first attempt. Rest 10% will be completed surely in 2nd attempt. So repetition of entire task is less and it saves time for future projects.
Create startup package:For web developer or web designer, it is very important to create startup package in the beginning. Whenever we start a new project from scratch we will import the startup package first and then start working on it. It will save time in first level. For web designers, they can create startup package like create a folder and place all necessary files js, css, fonts and some dummy html section like menu, slider, from, gallery, faq, gallery and others which they will use in 90% of all projects and keep it in google drive. Whenever they start a new project, just download the package and modify it accordingly. Now for developers, they also can do these types of package for each technology they work. Like if a web developer works on WordPress, they can create 2-3 packages (1 for business purpose website, 1 for booking purpose, 1 for listing type website) by using combination of WordPress, basic plugin of slider, portfolio, services, theme framework, metabox etc. So that they can reuse it for multiple projects.

- Must have option to add additional plugins/packages to add more features in editor
- Syntax highlighting
