From Front Desk to Front End p.20

Hi I'm Tauri, PREVIOUSLY a Front Desk Admin from an acupuncture clinic in San Diego, Cali and an aspiring Front End Developer!

This is a continuation of my series studying Front End Development thru a bootcamp called Skillcrush and utilizing many amazing resources across the internet like Front End Mentor and LinkedIn Learning and many many articles!

I am also now an Enrollment Counselor for Skillcrush, the most inclusive and affordable coding and design school on the internet with a job guarantee! 💪

I am primarily continuing to learn Front End Development (and will be studying Design with Skillcrush too!) for my own edification (and projects!) 💾

Right now I'm learning the React library for Javascript!

I hope you find content here that you can relate to and that inspires you to keep learning and growing. {:

Thank you for reading! 🌈

I started to learn about Component Trees! This makes a lot of sense when combined with the previous lesson regarding presentational and container components. I just reviewed the study material today. :)
For my landing page, I was fiddling around with different ways to label my headings, and finally settled on declaring classes for each set of heading-properties described by the Design comp (and added one I realized was commonly used but not on the design doc).

I started on my final project for the React unit, a Sticky Notes app! We were given the starter HTML and CSS, so I pulled in the JSX to show the styles of the UI.

I did a lot with my Sticky Notes UI today! In order to manage the data flow I identified the parts of my UI that were going to be handling data, assigned state according to the data models I chose to represent the dynamic content, assigned data management to components by passing the necessary props around, and swapped in state and props to placehold for the static values! I an see myself building UIs like this for myself, like to collect recipes I like! After this I’ll be adding in Event Listeners and Handlers so I can take in user input!
