I’ve got chills they’re multiplying and I’m recovering control (cause the power React is supplying is electrifying!).

Who is this React and why do I like him so much? Ditch that gossip magazine and lend me your ears (eyes) cause’ I’m about to tell you everything about it and it’s way better than the Royal family’s affairs or a telenovela!

Our match-maker: JavaScript

The feeling didn’t just come from nowhere, of course. We were introduced by JavaScript. Actually, if you want to be ready to build a relationship with React, you’d better be familiar and comfortable with the following topics:

I already wrote about myself and my decision to start coding and also about the tools that I used to break the ice and get a first glimpse at the coding world. But how is it like to go from zero to start coding full projects in 12 weeks? Is it everything how I expected it to be? …

But today I just want to talk about my experience with coding.

I’m now almost halfway through the coding bootcamp that I’m currently on and I must say it: It’s no picnic…

Reviewing and rating some coding apps and sources for beginners.

Going from zero to hero can also be fun! Check out my favorite sources for coding rookies.

So you want to start coding from scratch…

Before you read this, just let me be clear: I’ll assume that you are more or less like me:

  • You are starting from total zero (you’ve heard about this or you saw some other people doing code and became interested in it).
