LEARN REACT [QUICKLY || FAST || EASY]
There is not any way to learn one thing the simple way. You have got to be patient. That applies for developers too. Personally, that’s why I like being a developer, because there will be always something new to learn. If you stay curious, you will not be disappointed while becoming a developer. Learning is always a challenge, a challenge to hone your skills, if challenge and skill at hand are in balance. That’s why it takes time to learn React as well.
“I had a job interview coming up where I was asked to complete a project in React. I sat down on a Saturday and worked through The Road to Learn React and on Sunday I completed my project with plenty of time left before my interview Wednesday. In one weekend I went from 0% to 80% comfortable working independently in React.
There are a couple of tech stacks that people want to learn with React straightaway. I want to pick up a few of them and give a brief explanation why it isn’t a good idea to marry them with React while learning it:
- Learn React with Gatsby? Gatsby.js got quite popular in the recent time. It’s the go-to solution for creating static websites such as personal websites, blogs and landing pages. However, Gatsby comes with its own learnings such as GraphQL, its large plugin system, and the problems coming with server-side rendered React applications. So don’t mistake Gatsby.js for having an easier time learning React. It makes writing static websites with React easier, but not learning React itself.
These were only a few things React beginners tend to associate with React when starting out with it. There are definitely more of them. However, they will not make the learning experience easier. In contrast, you will have to learn two things instead of one. So start out with React first before learning anything on top of it. Learn one thing at a time.
