Learning React

New Year, New Language!

After recently finishing the Front End Web Development track, I was initially looking into learning Ruby next. However, I think React will be good to learn first (although I’m not sure I can explain why).

In any case, I like the feeling of starting with a clean slate.

Right brain learning

Fascinating talk about how we learn. Worth 20 minutes if you have the time.

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor had an opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: One morning, she realized she was having a massive stroke. As it happened — as she felt her brain functions slip away one by one, speech, movement, understanding — she studied and remembered every moment. This is a powerful story about how our brains define us and connect us to the world and to one another.
