    webpack 2 will be out of beta* once the documentation has been finished. But that doesn’t mean you can’t start using version 2 now if you know how to configure it. for more step by step guide visit https://blog.madewithenvy.com/getting-started-with-webpack-2-ed2b86c68783

    A few issues here

    "Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a little bit like the best of both worlds. It was developed as a [missing word] to GIF..."

    More importantly, is there a reason that for each image for comparison of jpeg, gif and png are all displayed as PNGs on this page? That will alter any image results massively surely?

    Books

    Start here. Books take longer to absorb. Start with a few books to get an idea of the basics:

    1. Typography. It's very important to get a firm understanding of typography and styling of text, because, even today, at least 70% of the web is text. Fot that, I'd recommend The Elements of Typographic Style by Robert Bringhurst.
    2. Basic design principles. The Elements of Graphic Design: Space, Unity, Page Architecture, and Type by Alexander W. White
    3. User experience. Don't Make Me Think by Steve Krug
    4. HTML&CSS. It isn't very hard to grasp the basics of these 2. Here's a nice book: HTML and CSS: Design and Build Websites: Jon Duckett or just go to https://www.codecademy.com/ and learn there.

    Online courses

    Then dive into online courses. They are usually focused on one topic in more depth:

    1. Hack design: https://hackdesign.org/ Curated by a number of experienced designers.
    2. Web design beyond HTML&CSS: 7 practical steps: http://rumendimitrov.com/web-des... (that's a bit of shameless plug as I helped make this one but I promise it's pretty good :-) )
    3. Sketching with CSS: http://www.planningforaliens.com... by Sean Fioritto

    And there are many more courses that I can't think of right now.

    I'm tempted to put out a long long list of "must-read" books.

    However, for you, as a begginer, it will be better to have a short list, so that you don't feel overwhelmed.

    Boss! So many people will give you give gyan over this. But let me tell you the most effective and powerful way.

    "Dear XYZ, I am thankful to you for your help during past X months in this beautiful place. I have learned so much from you and this company. However, I have a few financial obligations and responsibilities. This forced me to look for opportunities outside this company. I am considering those opportunities. Kindly suggest. ".

    Get an offer letter and try this.

    Thank me after that.
