Not big on books. Learned by following a few solid people on twitter and just creating something.
Don't need books. Just go to the official docs. Read everything on that site & viola now you can start building & when you build & if you don't know how to build something you can easily recollect it from the docs. Or our group has 10 people who are kinda experts in React like @pugson or @swizec so we can ask them 😂
For testing, just go with Jest. Its fast, asynchronous, built for big teams, used at Facebook & Cypress for E2E testing. If you don't anything about it, you probably don't know wtf I'm talking about.
It was free when I watched it 😂 but its all you need
If you don't want that just read through this source code http://git.io/testing-workshop
But I want books. I appreciate you taking the time to answer with so many sources but I am really just looking for book recommendations.
Here you go then
Full Stack React takes you from beginner to expert & is always updated & it contains testing too I guess. Not sure though.
It's a shame the "Download free chapter" CTA doesn't work!
Ohh it should. I tried in Safari it doesn't work but in Chrome it works. I think you have to wait sometime before it loads up (checkout the page has completely loaded). Took me like 10 seconds 😂
I've fallen into the horrible trap of "jQuery works for me" and not found the time to learn anything new, it's about time I did.
If it works then don't. But yeah React is the future & its here to stay for more 2 years atleast(just my prediction). So if you're learning anything go for React & if you are not adamant on books then free resource & simpler are the official docs (ohh & they're beautiful). Try it
I would recommend www.frontendmasters.com. It contains all the resources regarding Web Development. Wesbos courses are also very good.
