So You Think You Can France is Pretty Much Done!

This post was originally published on October 22, 2020 on my blog.

My latest side project, a rebuild of my So You Think You Can France website, is pretty much done! Yay!

Well, it's at least a very viable minimum viable product (MVP), and I'm super excited about it!

One of the major positive points for me is finally being able to implement React Router into one of my projects. It was one of those things floating around in my peripheral awareness, and I finally took it on.

There are still a few administrative things to finish up with it - including adding in more blog posts and inputting more city guide data into Firebase, but for the moment, it's pretty much good to go!

The entire project was built with React, used Firebase Firestore to store the data - and it's deployed with Netlify.

You can check the project out here >>

Gotta think of a new side project now! I'm feeling a subtle nudge in the direction of a React Native project... Stay tuned!

P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>

Thanks to your website (So You Think You Can France) I learned that French school days are from 08h00 to 18h00 😶

I have mad respect for french children.

However they aren't smarter than elsewhere 😅.
What are school schedules in South-Africa ?

Oh we start around 07h00 and end at 14h00. I know, that's a lot of time for extra-curriculars.

Yes and some French universities go from 8am to 10pm, which can be extreme for students.
