Chipping Away to Eventually Get to Where I Want to Go!

This post was originally published on September 25, 2020 on my blog.

And another Friday rolls around again! It's been a pretty productive week, although I did take a break with The Ladies Code Collective Podcast, which actually felt pretty nice!

I'm continuing on with React hooks today, and I think I'll move on to useEffect this afternoon. I'm confident that it'll all start really clicking after I get a broader overview of the larger ecosystem of hooks and React, in general.

That being said, I'm trying to not get too caught up in needing to know it all immediately (or just after learning it for the first time).

The internal battle of where to store my French city guide data continues, because as I was working on my app yesterday and storing the data in objects within the JS files themselves, I started thinking more about scaling the data and making it more efficient for large amounts of information.

Argh! I'll keep playing around with it. I'm excited to get a minimum-viable product up and running, so each little bit of time spent chipping away at that will eventually lead me to where I wanna get!


P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>
