Useful HTML/CSS links

Max Brockman's Code Fellows UX Dev Journey

Super Useful links for Front End Web Development!

I've been in Code Fellow's Front-End UX Developer accelerator for a couple weeks now, and some of the most useful info I've learned is a vast library of really great websites that talk about web design. This is a really short list right now, but I will be updating this as frequently as possible. ALSO I would love for anyone reading this to add a link to something they've found useful in the comments section. Just put it up there, because you never know how much you can help someone in a bind. ~Max
