Whether it’s in the physical world or online, the cornerstone of great engineering is the efficient and effective use of materials. Choosing the right constituent parts can make the difference between a monument to good design that stands the test of time and a ramshackle folly that all too quickly crumbles. This means that web designers and developers need to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the elements they’re using if they want to create lasting online spaces.

That’s why this issue we’ve invited web design superstar Jeremy Keith to examine the building blocks of websites and explore how you can utilise them to construct powerful but efficient sites. But great online real estate also needs to be easily accessed, which is why we’ve brought you our tips on boosting your PageSpeed Insights rank with the help of Google’s own Addy Osmani.

On top of this, we show you how you can transform text on your site into realistic speech using Google’s Text-to-Speech API. Not only that but you can also discover how to use the React Testing Library to test JavaScript API calls and build 3D maps for your site’s contact page.
