Please make something akin to the Flexbox Game—hands down the best way to learn flexbox.
I have to say, I don't really think that's how writing works. You can't just make up your own rules because you feel like it. Then the system falls apart. Capital letters are an agreed upon rule—just the fact that the lack of them are distracting your readers give them practical value.
Thank you for taking the time to reply. I guess I just had different expectations on what a React course would contain. I'm looking forward to the more advanced topics, and—as I wrote in the other comment—I still think that your combined chapters are worth the cost.
Just finished it, yes. I wasn't very impressed—definitely less impressed than by Design+Code's other courses. It's super basic, introduces GatsbyJS as well as React, but doesn't do that good of a job explaining why and how the two work together.
The introduction is more or less just a lot of copy/pasting lines in the terminal until you have a project folder, so if you aren't familiar with npm or JS frameworks in general, you won't be after this course.
I'm pretty proficient in HTML+CSS, so I was disappointed in the fact that styling was given more attention and explained more in-depth than React itself.
I like the learning by doing approach, but I think this course was too light on theory. I like to do, but I also like to understand what and why I'm doing. I'd say the $50 is still worth it, but mostly for the rest of their courses.
I'm looking forward to trying Phase once you launch. It seems like you guys are working on solving a lot of the problems that exist in our current digital design tools, so thank you for that.
One thing that I couldn't help to think reading through your post, though: wow that's a lot of different buttons and input fields. Of course it's always hard to have a valid opinion on this without actually having tried out the tool, but it seems to be, well ... overly complicated?
I really enjoyed this talk by Kevin from Subform about how they chose their layout model.
What are your thoughts on simplicity/ease of use vs loads of features?
I'm curious: where did you find that Tachyons fell short, where Tailwind may not? I'm starting a project soon and was planning on using Tachyons, but will reconsider if it makes sense.
I like it, only problem is this has happened a couple of times.
