Day 1: Development Environment

Setting up my development environment & going through the starter files.
This included:
  • Ensuring my node version is up to date.
  • That I have a ES6 syntax highlighter set up for my text editor (language-babel for atom).
  • Installing the React Developer Tools extension into Chrome.
  • Forking the starter file github project.
  • Introduction to 'create-react-app'.
We also went through an introduction to React Components and how the Props, State, & Context relate to these components.
