Learning Javascript and React

If someone told me 5 years ago, Javascript will be this interesting, I’d simply not believe him or her.

Well, sure I can write Javascript (if that mean using jQuery plugin and modify here and there) but I never too serious learning about it. Why? Mostly because I underestimate the power of Javascript.

So what make me want to learn Javascript more? The quick answer is React. I already built React application used internally by our team, but somehow it feel cheating not to learn the language itself.

I’m comfortable working with Python+Django, but I would like to bet my next 6 months to really learn Javascript.

After looking for options, I think I’ll start by reading You don’t know JS series.

Other good tutorials and resources

Those should keep me busy for a while. So let’s the journey begin!
