Instagram clone challenge

・1 min read

I appered for an online hackathon challenge on React, The task given for me was to build an Instagram clone web app.

I really liked working in react, how it helped me build faster with organised code.In short time I finished the task given,because with help of plug and playable components ( yes ,I shamefully reused most of my prev project components 😁😁 ).

I still hate my first experience as web dev when I have to care about the order of script tags and multiple libraries,dependencies confilcts.
