Hopefully this is the right sub-forum to post this question. I’m starting to learn React and I just finished the tic tac toe tutorial on react.dev, I got the gist of the syntaxes but I had some hard time understanding how React works…
It’s difficult to explain questions when you don’t understand the topic completely, but I will try my best.
For example, the parent component has a state, and it needs to be updated/rendered by child components (?). I tried to understand what is happening at each step, so when the page is loaded at first, what code is executed to display what I’m seeing on the screen. Then what happens if I click the square, what changed and what is calling the components to update the state, etc.
It was a little overwhelming to follow the “path” how React runs, because it’s like jumping back and forth between components and eventually it leads to the main component.
Is this the right way of thinking, like “step-by-step” approach? What advice do you have for others to become better at React?
