What makes a Front-end Developer a star?

A wide range of skills are needed to perform as a top Front-end Developer, involving both technical and creative abilities.
A front-end developer creates web pages with HTML and CSS. Today, CSS is commonly run through a pre-processor known as SASS or LESS. With these languages, successful front-end developers tackle problems related to your website’s display.
