In June I changed teams at work and went from building micro services and integrations with GoLang and PHP to building a WordPress plugin written mostly in React and TypeScript.
I browsed the courses on Udemy and other platforms but, in the end, I wound up working through React For Beginners by Wes Bos.
Now, I don’t often plug a lot of courses. To be honest I often find video courses extremely difficult to follow and actually learn from. This one was different. From the first lesson through the last the course was well laid out and easy to follow. It took me from zero knowledge of React to enough of an understanding that I can work through the code my new team had already built. That’s not bad for a course I finished in just over a day.
