Happy Tuesday! I'm feeling good - I'm going to be rewriting my Ladies Code Collective (currently just HTML/CSS/JS) into a React app!
I'm really excited about it because I've been practicing and getting more and more used to React Router.
Also, I'll be able to successfully pull my podcast episode data from an API. I was just running into way too many complications trying to do it with a static ol' site.
Anyway, I just finished up mapping out my component/app structure (with pencil, paper, and highlighters, mind you!) and I'm ready to get straight to it.
Getting the structure onto paper first helps so much in just getting a clear picture in your mind - I love it.
So often, I get way too ahead of myself and want to start in on the code as soon as possible - only to inevitably come up against several early organizational obstacles.
Also! I consider myself to be very comfortable with Git, but the thing is - I only commit and push my code changes to the main production branch.
Starting now, I'm going to be pushing to development branches and merging from there.
Updates to come! Wish me luck!
P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>
