Not sure if anyone knows of a good up-to-date resource that’s like this. I found a resource a few years ago by Colt Steele called “Web Developer Bootcamp” which was perfectly structured in that way. Was hoping to find similar for React.
Deployment doesn’t really have much to do with React itself. Different projects may be deployed differently. If I were you - I would just look for tutorials that walk you through creating a simple react application from 0 to finish. That way you will get a general idea of what its like working with react from start of the project to finish.
One I REALLY liked is a little bit dated, but it’s “your first react app” ebook by andrew farmer. He goes from idea generation to deployment on github pages and it really changed how I looked at programming and developing applications in react in terms of organizing the build, sequencing your coding and planning everything ahead of time without going out of scope
