It’s easy enough to be tasked with a small bug, run the app locally, put breakpoints, and debug the code using Chrome Developer Tools. It’s easy enough to be assigned a small user story that adds a dropdown to a form and requires modification to the form payload, and to follow the practices set forth by the senior UI developers on the team when submitting a pull request against master for the user story. That’s what got me hooked in the first place. I love the instant gratification aspect of front-end development, and I love creating reusable components.
