When I was a child I think about how the internet works? How do these websites work? What is the rocket science behind this? Lots of questions. But after my advanced level exams, I joined a programming class. There I learned about java as my first programming language. Then I learn python, C on myself.

After I came to the University I was thinking about “Mmmm Now it's time to learn new things”. So I choose Web development and I go through different courses on Udemy and Coursera. Here are the basic fundamentals that you need to learn in Web Development before entering React.
