Hi all! I don’t usually do this kind of story, but, I was so excited about seeing my friends after 9 months, that I thought it would be nice to share my personal experience here, with the Medium family! So, let's start with it.

What is positioning?

There are different ways or methods which allow us to put elements where we want, to position them on the document/screen. We can use display, float, and position properties. Today we are going to cover the position property.

Which are the values for position?

  1. Static (default)
  2. Relative
  3. Absolute
  4. Fixed
  5. Sticky

Let’s talk about each of them

This is the default value for an element. Static positioned elements are displayed in the normal page flow. The left, right, top, bottom and z-index properties do not affect an element with position: static.

So, let’s see an example of this.

Yes, there is a Simpsons-moment for everything! And this is not an exception!

Today I’m going to let you know (based on my personal experience, which means it can be different to other developers) how I think a Web UI developer will need to start in a company, the basic knowledge for a starter/intern/noob/novate/{whatever you wanna call them} developer!

1) Required (interview killer)

That feeling is because you don’t know what the recruiter is going to ask and if you are being able to answer that! so, I’ll give you some topics that they are going to be asking for. And one thing, there are some interviews that the main purpose is just leveling interviews, that means they are going to hire you, but they need to know if you are a JR, SSR, SR, or an Architect (if you are here, I assume you are going to be a jr, but…. …
