So I’m currently at the React section of FCC’s Front End Libraries Certification. The challenges are doable so far, but it never really explains things in full detail. It feels like I’m just following along without actually understanding how things work under the hood. I tried looking at tutorials from Brad Traversy’s React crash course to FCC’s React tutorial on Youtube but I was being overwhelmed by terms that sounds gibberish to me like DOM, npm, etc.
So do I have to learn anything in particular first before diving into React? From what I’ve seen so far, it feels like React is kind of an advanced stuff that requires a lot of prior knowledge but I could be wrong. Or are there any resources out there to learn React from a total beginner’s perspective?
