My journey to mastering React

My journey to mastering React

Let’s go back a couple of years, to a much different state in the world when people didn’t have to stand so far apart and could freely attend social gatherings.

Let’s go back a couple of years, to a much different state in the world when people didn’t have to stand so far apart and could freely attend social gatherings. When things in Javascript were… Kinda the same? We’re going back to the time I started learning React which, ultimately, ended abruptly.

Fast forward a few years to today. I have once again started learning React, but this time I’m sticking to it. I’ll try to point out my mistakes and why it didn’t work out the first time.

To give a bit of context, I have been working with Vue for a while now and I am still quite pleased with it. I picked Vue after I made a project in Angular 2, which didn’t really stick. Since there is a bit of a “rivalry” between Vue and React, I was apt to defend Vue instead of learning and trying to improve a cumbersome process or pattern that might have appeared in Vue. I hope this article will help to motivate you if you’re in the same state of mind.

The incentive

The first time I had a go with React was in a state where I thought Vue was a gift to humanity. Anything that was done in it was as it should be and nothing needed any changes. But since Reacy was so popular, I thought I’d give it a go and see why so many people are developing their apps with it.

I started with this tutorial. Everything made sense, but I just didn’t like how everything clicked together. *I remember thinking: “why would you do this like that when in Vue you could do this…” *which really isn’t the point. An interesting observation in software development is that there are always multiple ways to solve a problem. When you’re aware of that, instead of defending your solution, you can learn from someone else’s suggestion. And you can learn a lot.
