Harnessing the power of News API to stay up to date on global or local news

The Process

My goal of this project was to create a news feed application I could tailor to my own interests. During the development process, I greatly improved my JavaScript and Web Development skills. Teaching myself React was the big challenge of this project. My lack of knowledge about state management and lifecycles quickly changed as I devoted myself to this learning framework. I fell in love with React and have been using it exclusively ever since.
