Day #8: Work
25th of Aug:
My current job is making web animated banners. I have built AVIS, BUDGET, NSW transport campaign banners for months. Most of the banners are built and implemented into Sizemek or DoubleClick studio. I am a huge fan of GASP. In my opinion, GSAP is the best library to animate assets within JS codes. Some may tell me to try pixi.js and create.js. I heavily choose libraries based on how the community responds well to different matters and issues. So far GSAP wins. I plan to upload my animation works on my personal sites. The volume of works is massive since I have made animations for 5months. I am just not sure which ways are best to go. I don’t want to expose my codes(Indeed, I am not sure I am allowed to) via code pen. I may need to look for a way to generate gif files out of from web animation. Any thoughts?
Day 9: React CRM app practice1
26th of Aug:
I wondered how Redux works on React Native App. I never built React App before so I started to play lynda.com’s tutorial called “React Course Material Writing 3” by Emmanuel Henri. I have followed his tutorial and It was a good tutorial to follow what is CRUD & Redux pattern is about.
Day #10: React CRM app practice 2
27th of Aug:
It is same day to proceed. One thing I got is to inject firebase into React correctly. I had so many troubles to implement firebase before. A lot of old React tutorial explains old firebase way and that timing is way too far before firebase merged into google. I’ve got a problem to render my code at the moment. The problem I assume is from the timing when I tried to install React Native Redux Debugger. The course’ guide didn’t work so I tried to implement the modules by myself. It seems it doesn’t render anymore. I went back to my previous working repository and the result was same. I may ask Manny about it later. It is such a good instructor.
Day #11: TDD practice 1
28th of Aug:
I have the struggle to solve about the Promise. I want to learn ES6 deeper because React is now highly relying on this syntax. If you want to try here is the website. http://es6katas.org/
If you want to help me to solve es6 promise katas on creation, you are welcomed to pull request. I am stuck at the moment…
Day 12: Work (Animated banner)
Day 13: Work (Animated banner)
30th of Aug: Sames as usual. This part will be updated at some point. For instance, attaching gif file of my web animation. I have built AVIS banners for the quarter 4.
Day 14: Work (Animated banner) & Writing React state example codes
31th of Aug: Sames as usual for works. Although I have written something about state. I am currently writing NodeGirlsSydney React workshop “Intro to React”. The concept of props and state was quite confusing to me when I first faced to React – I still do. I wrote some basic components to explain “state” and here is my codepen for it.
This article gave me heaps of ideas to write my workshop. I recommend you to read it.
