Hey Stephen, I'm the creator of learnreact.design.
Feel free to ping me and I'll try to help wherever you need it.
Hey Jimmy! Author of the learnreact.design course here.
Thanks a lot for mentioning my course. I completely agree with your points above which is why I created the course in the first place.
It'd be much easier to work with devs if a designer can speak devs' language and show them that your design is not just pixels in Sketch but actually backed by code. They'd respect your design a lot more. Also completely agree that it's really compelling to be able to dig into actual product codebase and tweak things there. As long as you learn the basics, learn how to set up things, get the project running, and have a sense of where to look at and which file to change, it'd be life-changing since you can start contributing your design into the final product without someone else's help.
This is actually a good idea for a new site. First showcasing designs, after clicking into the design, an article discussing the implementation: the tech stack, tips and tricks etc.
Thanks a lot for the feedback Anthony! I've added these to my list. Let me fix them one by one as time allows!
Yup Basecamp does look decent. Hmm.. let me think about how to remove the feel of "a very long good doc"..
Thanks a lot for the feedback, Steven!
Thanks Ramy. The implementation of the speech bubbles is actually pretty simple. I used Bubbly to create the speech bubbles in CSS, React visibility sensor to detect if a speech bubble is visible and used CSS transition for the animation.
If you are interested in the code or the implementation of other parts of the site, remember to sign up the free email course where I'll talk about these in detail.
Thanks! Yup it's a great idea and I'll include a time frame. There will be an email form on the site too. I just need to figure out how to merge it with the other form.
Thanks Kris and Aaron. I've left my email address on the site but I agree it's a bit difficult to find. However, I do have some reservation for the chat bubble though. Seems like it's installed on every website nowadays and I personally find it a bit annoying.
Let me think about it. Thanks again for the suggestion.
Yup gonna try embedding the form statically instead. Thanks a lot for the feedback!
Thanks! hmm.. let me think about how to improve that.
