Meet Austėja Kazlauskytė :
Austėja is a new mom, law graduate, and “mom-and-pop” entrepreneur turned full-time frontend developer 🎉
She managed to get a job despite soul-crushing odds👇
And as if that wasn’t enough, she was also raising a child and facing a worldwide pandemic this whole time 😱
Here are some of the specific takeaways you’ll have from her…
In this piece, we’re going to look at two of the most used hooks in React:
If you’re not familiar with hooks, here’s the TL;DR: because of hooks, there’s almost no need for class-based components any more. Hooks let you “hook into” the underlying lifecycle and state changes of a component within a functional component. More than that, they improve the readability and organization of your components.
If you want a proper introduction to this subject, you can check out our advanced React course on Scrimba. …
In this article, I’ll teach you as many responsive design techniques as I possibly can in five minutes. This obviously isn’t enough to learn it properly, but it will give you an overview of the most important concepts, which I personally define as these:
- Relative CSS units
- Media queries
- Responsive typography
If you want to dive deeper into the subject afterward, you can check out our responsive web developer bootcamp on Scrimba which will enable you to build responsive websites on a professional level.
But for now, let’s start with the basics!
At the core of responsive web design are relative CSS units. These are units that get their value from some other external value. This is handy because it allows, for example, the width of an image to be based on the width of the browser. …
I’m really excited to share this four hour course on HTML and CSS (← link) with you.
If you’re curious about web development, but don’t know where to start, this is the perfect course for you!
There are absolutely no prerequisites for it, and you don’t even need to install a code editor! Scrimba will cover you there.
The instructor of the course is the brilliant Kevin Powell. He’s a big CSS fan, a very popular YouTube instructor, and he also teaches HTML and CSS in classrooms. In other words, you’re in good hands.
During the course, you’re going to learn the basics of HTML and CSS and start building your very first web pages. All the lessons are going to be hands-on and start writing actual code straight away. …
In this article, I’ll show you how to create a handy little app which keeps track of your receipts. It allows you to dump all your receipts into a Dropbox folder and then hit a button to organize them by month.
This is especially useful for when you’re doing accounting, as you normally want to do it on a month-by-month basis. Having all your receipts from a given month grouped together in a single folder can help you save a lot of time.
This article will teach you the bare minimum you need to know in order to start creating apps on top of the Dropbox API.
In my previous startup, we used the Dropbox API heavily in our production process. Our products were children’s book apps for iPad, and each book was simply a collection of Dropbox folders containing all the visuals, music and voice-overs for the book. This had two big benefits: it provided everyone with an interface they already knew how to use, and it was cheaper than building a custom interface.
So when Dropbox asked Scrimba whether we’d be interested in creating a sponsored course on their API, there was no doubt in our minds, as we knew how useful their API can be. …
In this article, I’ll list out the chapters and give you a sentence or two about it. …
2018 marked the beginning of Scrimba.com as a course platform. Throughout the year we launched a total of 16 free courses. And luckily for us, they’ve seemed to strike a chord within the dev community, as we’re now getting over 100K monthly visitors to the site.
As the year is coming to an end, I’d like to give you a challenge. A new year is a great opportunity to devote some time to improve your skills. So I’d like you to learn a new technology during the first weeks of 2019.
I challenge your to pick a course below and make it a new year’s resolution to complete it in January! …
The last few years, machine learning has gone from a promising technology to something we’re surrounded with on a daily basis. And at the heart of many machine learning systems lies neural networks.
Neural networks are what’s powering self-driving cars, the world’s best chess players, and many of the recommendations you’re get from apps like YouTube, Netflix, and Spotify.
So today I’m super-stoked to finally present a Scrimba course that helps any web developer easily get started with neural networks.
