A Complete Beginner's Guide to React by Ali Spittel

 Why not learn a bit about React? Video here.

 Tech used:

  • React Hooks
  • Node.js
  • Programming fundamentals (HTML, CSS, Javascript)


Github repo

I added the nifty drop down menu. I learned about it on Twitter about 3 days ago.

 When I put in the first line of programming, the files were made and instantly opened in Visual Studio Code.

That was a real shocker - I have never seen that happen before!...And I think I know why. 

See that bit in the first line - 'code'? 

In the video, that's part of Ali's terminal and not something you type in 😅 That made my files open in VSCode, but empty without the necessary code within.

I took that out and the rest of the screenshot proceeded. It only took me 5 minutes to figure that out! 

I'm not here to outline her entire video - Go give her a view, it's very helpful - just going to point out some cool things I didn't know.

  • You can dictate rules for the bots scraping your app. 'Scraping' happens by search engine indexers as well.
  • There are a lot of different JavaScript files here. 
  • Divs in the html can be ID's to attach to Element IDs in the React script in the JS.

Contactless Tech’s Role in the New Guest Experience ft. Intelity and The George

 Contactless hospitality technology is growing. You want to get away, and you'll be damned if a little thing like a deadly virus will stop you! But you still don't want to touch things. Ew. During the chat between INTELITY CEO Robert Stevenson and THE GEORGE Director of Operations Kerrie Hunter, you’ll learn how the historic boutique hotel has adapted a mobile-first guest experience in the wake of COVID-19—and how they see contactless technology affecting the future of hospitality. I don't remember how I found INTELITY (probably hoping to score a position with them), but I liked them enough to stay on the e-mail lists.
