This project gave me an absolute tonne of learning opportunities and experience – from refactoring existing code to using new technologies – all packed within less than two days. I really enjoyed it!
Getting a user’s location enables you to do things like show it on a map, provide information about the location, serve up personalised content, and more.
Getting that initial geolocation data is probably easier than you think.
Being able to build digital products is such an enabler.
This project was a great example of experiencing a problem or difficulty and, having enough knowledge to understand how a solution could work, being able to just go ahead and build it and fill in any gaps by learning along the way.
The world is your lobster!

In the interest of writing quicker, cleaner and clearer code, ES6 array helper methods are the bees knees.
Having gone through a video course of his some years ago, Wes Bos made a lasting impression on me as someone that could make learning to code really enjoyable and explain relatively complex concepts in an easy-to-understand way. So, when I embarked on this journey to learn React and wanted to go beyond freeCodeCamp’s intro course, I knew where to go next: his React for Beginners course.
