When should I start?

Hi Guys,

I’m doing the Front End Development Libraries course. My question is when should I start building my own projects? I’ve done the Responsive Design and Javascript courses. Should I continue to the Database courses or should I start my projects after the Frontend Libraries?

The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second best time is now.

Start building right now! Build build build practice practice practice

Thank you. I’m scared that maybe I needed to know more about React and libraries for Frontend because everywhere I hear how important a library and framework is for frontend.

Yeah, I think once you have the libraries, you can start to build meaningful projects. I think continuing on to learn some backend will allow you to build even better projects, but at this point you should at least start thinking about things to build - just be careful not to pick something so big and complicated that you get discouraged.

So, yeah, I’d at least want to finish the React section. If after that, you have an idea for a simple React app before you move onto redux, then go for it - just don’t get too distracted on your side quest. And it might be good - it will cement React and also sometimes it’s hard to understand why redux is needed before you build some React apps.

I do like to emphasize that it is important to keep on the path - your goal is to get that foundation in the MERN stack. If you do a sidequest, try to time box it, or just work on it on the side.
