WPTavern: 9 Year Old Shares her Journey Learning React

If learning React is among your New Year’s goals, here’s some inspiration from nine-year-old Revel Carlberg West. The video below is a recording of her presentation at the React NYC meetup. West describes how learned basic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and then moved on to learn React using the CodeSandbox online code editor. She also gives a live demo of React Hooks in action, a new feature that Sophie Alpert and Dan Abramov introduced at React Conf 2018. The code for West’s traffic light demo is available on CodeSandbox if you want to follow along.
