SunburstJS: Seeking A Mentee

site seems to be buggy. i filled out my profile but it doesnt let me contact pple

This sounds really awesome. I’ve been looking for good, up-to-date tutorials on exactly this topic. I’m excited to see what you put together!

I’m also having problems with the site. I tried to sign up for the site. When I went to validate my email, it won’t let me sign in. I just get a message that says ‘An Unknown Login Error’ occurred.

@jv88899 do you fit my criteria? what’s your availability like? DM me if you wanna do this. im also speaking with JohnL3 but i know things fall thru

How to i DM you? I just signed up to this site.

do i need to know the basic for all or just one program you mentioned? HTML, CSS, JS, React.

I am determined to learn to program again and I am desperate to find someone to help me.


there’s a little envelope thingy at the top right for DMming:


yes you do need to be comfortable with HTML, CSS, JS, and React or we wouldn’t get very far.

If you need someone to help you through the more basic levels can I suggest going on the FCC gitter:

aw shuck, I hope our path will cross in the future. Thank you.

@tam16717 - The forum here can provide the same level of help as the FCC gitter channel.

to anyone following along… @johnl3 and i had an initial call today and i tried to record it but failed horribly because i am a noob at these things… we should start recording our lessons in the next couple days and i will post them up here. in case you want to skip to the end, this is the repo i will be working with:

I have crossposted this to and Reddit. I hope pple dont chew me out for it, Reddit can get rough.

@sw-yx I’m not looking to be a mentee, but as an alternative method for your tutorial, have you looked at Scrimba interactive coding screencasts? I’m not affiliated with Scrimba, but I watched a CSS Grid tutorial that Per (at put together. It is a pretty slick system.

Good luck & cheers

i havent but i’ll check it out. its probably more involved than i want it to be since im just looking to record a bunch of videos for future learners to check out haha

edit: checked it out - looks like its only for frontend coding as theres no ability to run a server. bummer :frowning: the tech looked super cool

Hey future people who might find this - our first video is here! We go over setting up and deploying Create-React-App with a Node/Express backend, all in <40mins! You get to see all my screwups along the way lol.

second video here! we start from where we left off and add a MongoDB database!

Alright so John and I are going to do this crazy experiment and you are invited! here is the link to the livestream happening in an hour or so it’ll convert to a video in case you miss it. i hope i dont screw this up.

Hello! so we are done recording and here’s the video!

In this session John and I will go over setting up and deploying Create-React-App with a Node/Express backend. We will assume you already know basic HTML/CSS/JS/React.

Continuing our adventures from here. In our first stream we set up a basic fullstack js app. in our second stream we are going to implement react router and mongoose/mongodb. see you in the chat if you’re around!

we didnt get to React Router today but we did fumble around with implementing mongoose/mongodb!! my flaws are in full display here but we get there in the end. we implemented mongoose/mongodb so that we have a persistent counter.

You need to just keep one thread going and update it instead of starting new threads for this. This will keep the entire history together. I am combining and closing the extras into the main thread.
