I need to redesign my website. My options are to A.) take the easy route and build off of what already exists (hacky PHP), or B.) use this as an opportunity to learn React.
I’m not a web developer. I used to be, but I’m a full DevOps Engineer now. So learning React isn’t directly inline with the work I do, but I feel like it can be useful knowledge.
I’d like the website to “be built correctly”, but I also like my approach now because it’s super fast and lightweight (HTML is all rendered by PHP, and the only JS library is jQuery).
What do you think?
