Danielle Adams Ask Me Anything

Hi! I would give 2 pieces of advice:
1) Do NOT get distracted/FOMO from all the tools/libraries out there. What is important is what you have decided to focus on for the job/project that you want. If X company invests in Y framework, become an expert.
2) Understand how everything fits together. Every front end framework draws influence from another one. Much of what is back end JavaScript builds on top of previous OSS projects. Understanding how everything is connected will give you a better handle on the larger JavaScript + Node.js + front end ecosystem.
