I just finished the Front End Libraries Cert courses, and I’m just starting the five Front End projects. On the very fhe first step, I’m completely stuck. Although the lessons told me how to use these languages, none of them ever taught me how to set anything up. All the lessons took place with FCC code running in the background. All the setup code, at every step, was hidden. I have no idea how to set up the code myself.
The only thing I’ve been told about this is at the very end of the React/Redux lessons, on how various scripts are imported into the main site data and used from there.
I have no idea how to set up React, ReactDOM, Redux, JQuery, etc., because none of it that was ever explained. Everything at every step on how to set that up was hidden.
My takeaway from this is there needs to be a lesson, or a set of lessons, in the Front End Libraries Certification course, on how to actually implement various libraries in your page or app, and then have
it done the person taking the lesson do it from scratch - like a big review lesson.
I understand part of the FCC learning method is looking things up, but leaving this out completely seems like a big oversight. People learning need to be told, if even just once or twice, what the background code is that’s making this work, how it’s being implemented. Not specifically how it’s working with FCC’s editor, but how it’s supposed to be implemented in a page, as if working from scratch.
