React Redux Project Planning


The final project is where you get to demonstrate all that you have learned throughout your time as a student at Flatiron!

Use this document to help you complete this planning form

Note: Keep in mind that the Ask a Question is not permitted to help while you are building your projects. Use the internet and the resources provided in this document if you get stuck!

How to Get Started On a Successful Project Build

  1. Read through the project requirements here carefully before getting started.

  2. Come up with a project idea of your own, and devote some time to a planning session. Think about the following:

a. What will your app do? What is the user experience? b. What data will you store in your database? c. What data will you keep track of in your redux store? Will you need local state in any of your components, too?

Use this form to jot down your plans and submit it to us so we can see what you are planning!

We are here to help! Each week, there are Open Office Hour study groups specifically designed to help with React/Redux project questions. Keep an eye out for our React/Redux topic-based study groups, too!

Making a User story

  • Who is your User?
  • What is their pain point?
  • How do they use our solution to overcome this problem?

Example: Sally is trying to get into hiking and wants to keep track of her favorite trails. Sally wants a place to write notes about each trail and her experiences:

  • Sally is able to enter trail information and notes through a form
  • She can navigate to an index page to see all her previous hikes
  • Sally can see more detailed information about a specific hike by clicking on it

Learn about Flatiron School's Mission

With a new take on education that falls somewhere between self-taught prodigy and four-year computer science degree, the Flatiron School promises to turn students with little programming experience into developers.

In the six months since the Manhattan coding school was acquired by WeWork, it has spawned locations in Washington, D.C., Brooklyn, and London. Now, WeWork is opening a fourth Flatiron School location, this time in Houston.

Adam Enbar, Flatiron School's cofounder, believes now is the time to grow. "How the world is changing has impacted working and learning in very similar ways. We think education fundamentally is about one thing: enabling people to pursue a better life."

Learn. Love. Code.
Students come to Flatiron School to change their lives. Join our driven community of career-changers and master the skills you need to become a software engineer or a data scientist.
