React ND - Day #2
React ND - Day #1
Last week, I mentioned enrolling in Udacity’s React Nanodegree program. I’m already pretty familiar with React, but I feel like I have a lack of foundation when it comes to the building principles of React. So, I was pretty excited when I found out about Udacity’s new React Nanodegree. Here’s to unlearning bad habits! 🍻 Day #1 Worked from 6:15 to 7:15pm Made it through Part 1: Lesson 1 & 2 Lesson 1 First thing I learned was function composition - the idea of combining simple functions to build more complicated ones.
Hacking the Google Places Autocomplete API
For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on implementing a location search box using Google Places API. It would be used to apply a location filter on a list of user profiles. To do so, I needed to use the Autocomplete API which provides a nice type-ahead-search behavior you’ve seen in many of Google’s search boxes. Once I got my API key, it was a really simple setup. Note: I’m working with React.
