Hey guys, I applied for a job and the head of engineering has asked me to do a simple web application using React.js to work with an api they provide. The job description states ‘No experience with React.js required, we will teach you and provide mentoring’. I have just started learning React.js so I’m not really confident with it yet.
Should I message back stating that their job description doesn’t require me to know React.js or is it possible for me to learn enough React.js and build a simple web application? I will be given 5 days from when I agree to start but he has said it shouldn’t take that long but want to make sure I have enough time.
What should I do? The job seems like a good learning opportunity for me so I don’t want to mess it up.
5 days is enough, you should spend 2 days learning React all day. Then the next days creating it.
For an interview i was asked to do Unit Testing, I had no idea what that was, turns out it is complicated but I spent 3 days just learning and i implemented something…I didn’t get that one job but that may be something you have to do on an actual job.
If you already got a good source of learning ignore this as I know sometimes too many sources can get a bit confusing but i have learned from this guy in the past and I think it’s a pretty good source:
