Notes as I learn modern front-end development
I promised here that I would document my progress learning frontend development. This isn't a book-length treatise on the subject, but I do have a few notes about my progress.
I played with several different frameworks with varying results. I'm not sure whether my success and/or appreciation of the frameworks is based on my bias and previous learnings, but some are much easier than others to pick up.
As I get more comfortable, I think I'd like to try doing some things with just jQuery or backbone.js - something much lighter and farther down the framework stack to see how it feels. Would love recommendations if you have any.
It hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be. It hasn't really been fun either, though. I suspect with time I'll be more comfortable and I continue to press myself to learn. Thanks for following along.
