My experience with React JS

I started learning web development in March 2020. It was mainly because of our HOD that i have been able to become a web developer. He gave me a project that was completely customised and asked me to make a web app. And although it seemed like an impossible task to me in the beginning i was able to make that project by semester end.

And although i liked learning web development a lot, the backend somehow always interested me more. I was always more into the back end development rather than front end. It was not until i was introduced to React that i fell in love with front end development.

After i completed my semester project, one of my juniors told me how amazing this new framework was. And since the day i have started learning React i have officially started to like front end development like never before.

React gave me a power over the front end that full stack flask never did (which i used to do before) and to say that React is Good would be an understatement! React is great! Since the day i have started learning react i have never gone back to doing the full stack flask again.

Using React i was able to make apps like youtube-clone and spotify-clone so easily that i really wonder if it would have been that easy to make with flask. Now i intend to use React for all my front-end stuff and for all other apps that i will be making in future. In the end all i can say is React is awesome and you must try it once.
