The original article is written here on my blog ->
This article will be written keeping in my mind people who have yet to dive into React and are thinking of doing so, or have already started with React and are facing some issues with it.
For people who haven’t started yet
In this section I’ll give some tips I think will be helpful to people who still haven’t started with React yet and are planning to do so. Also, if you aren’t planning to do so – Please do. React is absolutely awesome and I think you should probably give it a try.
The whole landscape around frontend development changed as people’s browsers and machines became more powerful. Powerful enough to compute things and execute things on the client side. This gave rise to frameworks and libraries like Angular, React , Vue etc etc.
For people who have started and are struggling
When I finally felt confident enough to dive back into React, I did. Not that I had learned all the concepts of the language, because I still haven’t . But I just fell confident in myself and my JS knowledge. I knew that I wouldn’t struggle with React anymore. Luckily, I did not – in places that I did, I would take a little break and learn the JS concept behind it again.
In fact, it’s totally fine even if you struggle the second time out as well – just study the same concept again. In programming, practice makes perfect. There is no other way around it.
I’ll just go ahead and name few topics which I feel are the most important ones for you to know about :-
How the DOM works.
Single Threaded nature
Import and module concepts
I just want you to learn enough so that you don’t get overwhelmed when it comes to working with React like I did and that is the purpose of this article.
Some resources I used
