👋 Hi, I'm James!
If you've ever tried watching a coding tutorial on YouTube, chances are you eventually found yourself watching something totally unrelated. Or, you've wanted to watch solid tuts on React, but couldn't decide among the hundreds of playlists or instructors available!
These are the two main reasons why Teach Yourself Code is being built (yes, it's a work in progress!). One, to give users a place where they can focus entirely on the video at hand, and two, to eliminate decision paralysis by providing a curation of videos by reputable instructors.
Teach Yourself Code is built on React and GraphQL. I'm way more familiar with Vue, so I decided to use React to become more familiar with it. As such, the code is messy. Tests are almost non-existent as this point. And best practices aren't always followed. You can view the source code here, and I welcome PRs and issue reports!
For updates on other things I'm working on, you can follow me on Twitter!
