Day 25 of #100daysofcode: Head Still Down

I have been very busy and the next few days will, unfortunately, be even busier. Since I am devoting almost all of my time to work which is extraneous to the challenge, I will try and keep up a dialogue instead! Today's topic is React.


Bit of an update on my current stance on React. I am going to use React in the upcoming Study Aid app, so there will be more discussions on React!

I really like React. My current project has become a web of shaky attempts at state management, but I feel that I have a much, much greater understanding of state management now that I have spent so much time trying to fix mistakes.

Because of all of this trouble with states, I have decided that I really want to look into using Redux! I have heard that Redux has a lot of overhead learning, but I think that it may be worth it. Being able to control state better seems key in creating more advanced web apps, so I will be looking into Redux in the coming days.

We have implemented React routing in the school project as well. I initially thought this would be a pain in the butt, but it turned out to work very well with Flask's routing. I am looking forward to exploring the Flask-React routing interactions further!

Yeah! So while I think I have a fair grasp on React, I know that I have only scratched the surface of its capabilities and I am looking forward to using it more in my coming project.


Stretched really thin right now.

  • Bit more Leetcode practice
  • A lot of work on school project


  • Finals and final project sprints: Not much time left!
  • Learn more about Redux!
  • Start the Study Aid app!
  • Later in the challenge: AWS Deployment, AWS Certification, and Using Docker!?

An Animated Guide to Node.js Event Loop

Node.js doesnโ€™t stop from running other operations because of Libuv, a C++ library responsible for the event loop and asynchronously handling tasks such as network requests, DNS resolution, file system operations, data encryption, etc.

What happens under the hood when Node.js works on tasks such as database queries? We will explore it by following this piece of code step by step.
