How can I describe the first week of the React.Js course? No more stroking your head and telling you that learning to program is easy, simple, and fun. The time of hard plowing on the fallow has come. Nothing is easy, there is no time to play and the slogan “works for me” … does not work.
There is no hand guiding in the React.JS course
This is how I could sum up the first week of participation in the React.js course. 13 hours of learning, where the tutor shows a general scheme of action on his own example, but you have to prepare another element of the application or an extended variant of what the tutor showed. This requires a completely different level of understanding of what is being discussed in the lessons. It takes time, commitment, and support from the group. Fortunately, I’ve managed to wade through and build an almost fully functional online timer. “Almost” because it still lacks a few elements.
React.js itself is a very interesting language for me, giving a lot of possibilities. The first two days I thought that I would quit the course, but now I see that it is only a problem of getting into a given technology. At the end of the week, I can say that I’m already beginning to understand something. Something more dawns in your head. I can even arrange the small elements of the application myself. I’m curious what else can be done with this technology.
But what’s more apart from React.JS course
This week has been very intense, and the announcement before the second week of the React.js course shows that the next week will also be demanding. Fortunately, summer is ending so it will be much easier to find some free time to study.
This week I was programming for almost 19 hours.
In August 45 hours in total, most of which it turns out in the last week 🙂
