Pre-React JS

Update: 🆗, I 'sold out' and restarted YT channel from scratch! 😳

Update #2: As a result of my 'silly' YT stuff...I got a new job - a really great one...possibly a 'dream' job!

A while ago I had a YT channel. It was 🆗. Nothing special.

I just got sick of all of the YT bull💩 - the massive ads, the tons of idiotic distracting videos and click bait and, as an 'admin,' the UI for uploading and organizing was absolutely horrible 🤮.

It was a real waste of mental energy 😫!

So, I'm going to revamp my 'video career' (and I use the term 'loosely') here.

I've been teaching JS for a few years now - mostly in-person in college courses and at 👢 camps. Any, maybe, just maybe, a few of the ways that I present things might appeal to you.

One of the reasons I'm making videos for dev.to (and I wish that more of our dev friends would abandon YT in favor of this platform) is because it's lower pressure.

I don't need to have a ton of 'fancy effects' in my videos or care too much about clickbait stuff, etc.

In fact, my videos will have a minimal amount of editing.

If you do watch and enjoy it, let me and/or others know. I want to make this a 10-20 video series, but will be more likely to do so if I get a bit of positive feedback.

The purpose will be to get JS beginners prepped to approach React with more confidence 🦸🏽‍♂️.

Generally, I'll cater the delivery to those who have had some experience with JS, but are still quite fuzzy on terminology, etc.

Ask ❓s, and I'll try to respond in the comments and/or make follow-ups.

Thanks for any feedback you have! 🤓

This post blew up on DEV in 2020:

🚀⚙️ JavaScript Visualized: the JavaScript Engine

As JavaScript devs, we usually don't have to deal with compilers ourselves. However, it's definitely good to know the basics of the JavaScript engine and see how it handles our human-friendly JS code, and turns it into something machines understand! 🥳

Happy coding!
