Nothing too new or too exciting to post this sunny, autumn-y Wednesday morning.
Still carrying on with my So You Think You Can France rebuild using React, slowly but surely. I had a great conversation with one of my mentors and friends yesterday, and just a couple minutes of talking it through got me so much more clear on moving forward with the project.
I'm finding that I have a good handle on React theoretically and on very small, manageable projects in practice - but as soon as I start moving on to more advanced concepts, my brain spirals out of control and I feel like I don't even know the absolute basics in React!
I think that's normal though. Just gotta keep working at it.
Oh, and I think I am gonna stick with Firebase Firestore for storing the data. If you've read before now, I was having a brief flirtation with learning SQL, but I think for now, I should try to focus on one thing at a time to improve and learn.
In other news, going to be publishing a new podcast episode today - yay! Onward.
