That sounds fantastic! I’m currently finishing up the CSS fundamentals before heading over to JavaScript. I’m looking forward to trying out React since one of my goals is to learn at least one framework by the end of this year.

Hi Diana - thanks!! And great goal!!

If I could offer a bit of advice, I'd definitely focus on really dialing in the JavaScript fundamentals before picking up a framework only because if we try to learn them together (JS and React, for example), it's difficult to see where JavaScript ends and where the React features start, if that makes sense.

I think that's where my false starts in learning React came from before. So I decided to dive fully into JS alone for a few months before giving React another shot.

:D

That makes a lot of sense :) I do plan on spending enough time with Javascript since I remember reading a couple of comments from others where React wasn't easy to pick up and that's mostly due to not having a concrete understanding on Javascript.
