I have completed another Lynda.com course, “Learning ECMAScript 6“, which included a ton of new ES6 information that I hadn’t yet explored.
Node Package Manager
I wanted to get back into React by starting on another Lynda.com course, “React.js Essential Training”, because I thought it might be easier for me to go through this before the Free Code Camp challenges. However, I was advised to learn about NPM, or the Node Package Manager, before continuing with the course. Rather than spending another 2-3 days learning something else entirely, I found an NPM crash course on YouTube to familiarize myself with the concepts before continuing.
I have to admit that this is one of the best “crash course” style videos I’ve ever seen. I’m sure there is still a lot to be learned about NPM but Brad Traversy did an excellent job of explaining the basics so I can at least get started and feel confident in continuing with this React course.
