Day 12 of #100daysofcode: Learning and Meetings

Between meetings today, I learned about Django and continued my journey to a Javascript certificate from FreeCodeCamp.

Today

I started today with working on FreeCodeCamp tutorials for about an hour. I then had to prepare for a couple meetings I had today. Between meetings, I learned about Django and some of key differences between Django and Flask.

At the surface level, it seems like Django is ideal for quickly getting a small project off the ground, while Flask is better and more flexible in larger projects.

I will discuss Django more after I learn more about it. I am still considering building my next app in Django instead of Flask, if only to learn it.

I also spent some time on the artist app today. I made a mistake with some git commands and, long story short, I ditched a week's worth of changes.

A little disheartening, but I was considering trying a different tact for constructing the main page, so I'm not too upset about it.

A clean slate, a new approach!

Tomorrow

I am going to spend some time tomorrow planning the final approach for the artist app. I have already designed most of the elements using React bootstrap, it's really only the structure of the page that I will be focusing on.

What I'm Struggling on

Complicated state management between components. I still haven't quite nailed it down.

That's all for today! Thanks for following, if you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments below!
