Hey! I'm on a mission to make 100 React.js projects in 100 days starting October 31, 2020 and ending February 7th, 2021. Please follow my dev.to profile or my twitter for updates and feel free to reach out if you have questions. Thanks for your support!
Sometimes when you're learning a framework or language it's easy to spend a lot of effort and build a lot of projects that focus on fundamentals but don't create anything you'd use in the real world. That's why I took a break from the fundamentals I've been learning to follow along with an excellent tutorial on Youtube and build a full site in React.
Most of the tutorial was spent on concepts I already know- in fact just about all of it. Probably the most foreign thing I did here was making separate CSS files for each component.
That said, seeing all of the things I've been learning over the last month and a half put together in an actual, good looking, responsive website was priceless. You never know how you're going to implement something until you've tried it in the wild- so this was my chance to do that.
Lots of fun and an opportunity to flex some of the strengths of the React framework, like reusability and building pages with components.
5/5 stars - would code again.
FYI - Thanks again to Brian Design whose excellent Youtube videos seem to be perfect for my current level- too advanced for beginner videos but too new to be advanced. Definitely check out his channel. Link here
