sorry, I still do not get email notifications from this forum but I think I fixed that.
For me it is kind of hard managing a front-end and back-end framework together.
From the professional point of view, most of the company will ask you to either work as Back-end or Front-end Developer, this means that you either are expert in one or the other.
The skills above as Full-Stack Developer allow you to build your own apps for Desktop, Tablet and Mobile, it is a great way to learn coding independently, build a portfolio or your own startup,
Anyway this is my portfolio page https://fabriziobertoglio.xyz and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to contact me
As Ruby on Rails back-end developer it is required to have very good expertise of Ruby and Rails, so it will be hard to think of using a front end framework like React or Angular if you are not a Senior Developer.
Getting to know well Ruby + Ruby on Rails will take 3-4 years full-time work (Monday to Friday)… Building your own apps will count as work experience, the keys to get good jobs are having a good Github profile, which means making forks from other projects, contributing or building opensource project that become popular, then stackoverflow reputation, so getting points there…
I’m saying all this things, you may know this staff and be super experienced, I just want to discuss so…
The point is, if you are alone you are not going to use React, you just build apps with Rails + Turbolinks 5, for the mobile version you can publish the app to the store using Turbolinks 5 as explained in this video
I believe solutions like React are mostly used by big team, in general APIs are used by big teams that combine back and front end developers using different frameworks
Right now I am working on two things,
- Building Ruby on Rails API (I never did that because it is not required to build Apps)
- Stepping up my knowledge of Ruby on Rails
Do you use often Stackoverflow?
I am obsessed with SO…
So hope to hear from you soon
