The time spent building a new web project can be greatly reduced if you choose to use a prebuilt HTML5/CSS framework.

Web development tutorials often cater towards beginner starting topics. However there are plenty of intermediate-to-advanced level tutorials focused on complex development techniques.

To save time I’ll be using the jQuery Tags Input Plugin which is free and open source to use on any project. I prefer this plugin over some others because of the many parameters and options for customizing the experience. Take a peek at my live demo to see what we will be creating.
