Hello everyone, Happy New Year!

What brought me here? I just recently bought a house and ran into one of the "2 unit tests. 0 integration tests." situation gifs that @ThePraticalDev posts. I saw a fancy dev.to link in the Twitter bio and short URLs intrigue me (easily amused I guess). After reading the about page I figured I'd give it a try.

I'm a frontend developer working in the Portland area. I started learning flutter and dart. It's a really exciting language/framework. Happy to keep learning!

 

Congratulations on your new house! I'm on the path on becoming a frontend developer myself, do you have any tips? and also have a Happy New Year!

 

Thanks! The best tip is to find an interesting project to work on. I think it's ok to start with a framework like react or angular and work your way back to the basics. Too many times I've started with the basics and lost interest. Here's a free book to get started with github.com/getify/You-Dont-Know-JS

Wow, I think you just hit the spot, I actually wanted to start with Ionic but since I barely knew a thing about html and CSS I focused more on that, I will definitely check those books out too and thank you! I may dedicate more time again to both studies and checking Ionic out even though I don't know much.
