re: Using a tool vs. knowing how a tool works internally. VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Do we really need to know how computer actually converts each pixels to binary and doing millions of tasks at the same time? or is it okay if we only know, computer does something (magic?) to convert to binary and show us the pixel.

 

It depends upon the person's interest too. not everyone is into that low level stuff, but you can't disagree that those who knows how "computer actually converts each pixels to binary and doing millions of tasks at the same time" have better insights.

For example:

  • If You are a Graphics programmer?
    You have to understand how computer rasterization works and rendering works

  • If you are a hardware engineer
    You have to understand how does a logic gate in a microchip work, behavior of a transistors, how electrons move through a circuit

  • And If you are a frontEnd developer
    It would be probably be helpful to understand how all these tools works internally

Of course we don't need to understand everything (no one know how universe works, but everyone is trying)
but having a basic understanding of how the tool works internally, can be beneficial.

 

Agree.

I'm in a stage now where I don't know both Vue or React. (I only know jQuery now)

Can you show some examples (may be in a next article) showing how same stuff can be achieved via Vue.js & React? and possibly explain why React is better? Because after reading Vue js Docs, I was confident of trying it, but after react docs, its not.

I have seen several articles, tutorials & videos of both react & vue js to choose one.

I have an upcoming project where lot of DOM manipulation happening (like drag & drop builder) So your Guidance is appreciated.

There are lots and lots of good articles online and resources to learn.

Well i would suggest not picking up any lib/framework at start, and just go with javascript, and before learning any framework/lib deeper understanding of javascript & ES6 is good to have otherwise you will find yourself struggling with simple tasks.

"Vue js Docs, I was confident of trying it, but after react docs, its not." well this line justifies my point of the post, if you read it carefully. vuejs is easier to work with but reactjs is simple to understand.

Either way i would suggest learning ES6 Concepts like Arrow Functions, Promises, async/await, destructuring, higher order array methods etc etc.

"and possibly explain why React is better?" well i did not said React is better than Vue in the post nor i said Vue is better than React. Choose whatever suites the project and whatever you feel comfortable with.

Sure, I'm learning ES6 now. Just today i wrote something about it here:

Neat! nice post.
yeah keep learning. :D
