Nurturing the roots

Web development has a plethora of tools to learn and evolving technologies to keep up with. It's easy to be overwhelmed. To combat this we should be focusing on the core skills of our field first, growing our skill set over time, adding tools and systems as we need them. The vibrant community in this industry makes that easy, with experienced developers always out there to help others in so many ways. Not forgetting that we can all be novices in some form so sharing with the community whatever your level will always be useful to someone at sometime.
