How to approach React for Data Visualization
I recommend starting with an idea, a problem. Something you want to build. A dataset you want to play with. A feature you want to add to your app.
That makes it easier. Helps focus your brain. Notice things in this course that help you specifically.
From there, I think you should see how much time you've got. The course is designed so you can go over the important stuff in a couple hours. Watch a video, read some text, try some code. See how it feels.
If the best way is a daily practice, 20 minutes after work, 5 minutes on the pooper, do that. If you're more of a sit down and cram it out kind of person, a nice Sunday afternoon with some coffee will do just fine.
But don't make it a chore. We're here to have fun 😃
Two suggestions ✌️:
- Try the example code. Don’t just copy-paste; type it and execute it. Execute frequently. If something doesn’t fit together, look at the linked Github repositories or solved CodeSandboxes. Each project has one.
- If you know something, skip that section. You’re awesome. :heart:
React + D3 is based on code samples. They look like this:
let foo = "bar"foo += "more stuff"
Each code sample starts with a commented out file path. That's the file you're editing. Like this:
// ./src/App.jsclass App ...
Commands that you should run in the terminal start with an
$ symbol, like
$ npm start
