Starting a React-Powered Comment Form | CSS-Tricks

This is a really great screencast on getting started with React. I think it works well for a few reasons:

  • Sarah and Chris aren’t necessarily experts yet in React—that’s good; it means they know from experience what “gotchas” people will encounter.
  • They use a practical use-case (a comment form) that’s suited to the technology.
  • By doing it all in CodePen, they avoid the disheartening slog of installation and build tools—compare it to this introduction to React.
  • They make mistakes. There’s so much to be learned from people sharing “Oh, I thought it would work like that, but it actually works like this.”

There’s a little bit of “here’s one I prepared earlier” but, on the whole, it’s a great step-by-step approach, and one I’ll be returning to if and when I dip my toes into React.

Huffcast

Tony recently remarked on Twitter:

Readwriteweb write the most thoughtful intelligent pieces around, and it’s worryingly indicative of our culture that they aren’t read more

I have my own, somewhat selfish, reason to praise this particular tech site. ReadWriteWeb’s lead writer, Marshall Kirkpatrick, is a big fan of Huffduffer. What an astute young man! He even made a screencast for Read Write Web.

Huffduffer Screencast

Seriously, I’m pleased as punch with this. Marshall totally gets it. When he mentioned on Twitter:

Every time I find a need to use @huffduffer I am happy happy happy…

…I thanked him and said:

Increasing happiness is the goal of that site.

…which is true. If only happiness weren’t such a damned difficult metric to track. But seeing someone else make a top quality screencast explaining the site is a pretty great indication that I’m doing something right.

Mind you, it does prompt me to slap my forehead and ask why didn’t I think of making a screencast?
