It's been a solid week here at CloseBrace. I've put out our standard tutorials, fixed a few annoying bugs, and started writing a mammoth article. I've also started putting together some thoughts on where I want to take the site, and how I can hopefully get there.
So let's talk tutorials. This week we posted a two-parter on Webpack hot-reloading, which makes React development wildly less annoying, since we no longer have to run our compiler in our terminal window every single time we make a change to our source. Handy! You can find these tutorials right here: Five Minute React 27 - Webpack Hot-Reloading Part 1 and Five Minute React 28 - Webpack Hot-Reloading Part 2.
I also wrote, recorded, and edited two new tutorials. In the first, we build out some of the basic components we'll need for our app. In the second, we dive into React routing and get that up and running. I'm three tutorials ahead right now. We're really starting to get into the nuts and bolts of building out our front-end app, which might be my favorite part of this whole process. Soon we'll be getting into actions, stores, state changes, and all that good stuff.
Beyond all that, I fixed a few bugs on the website. Nothing major, just some minor annoyances.
That's about it! I'm working from New York City next week, so that'll be fun. I used to live in Brooklyn and I miss it pretty often, so I'm happy to be back around and seeing some friends.
Have a good weekend!
