When I started learning React ~ 2017 in Udacity, I followed a Youtuber who has enrolled in the same cohort. He used to share a weekly update about his progress.

After the first week, I hit the ground running with CRA, but he focused on building everything from scratch using Webpack tooling to x-ray what’s going on.

After the third week, he published a video about his frustration with the setup and how it zipped his energy and caused him to lag behind his peers in learning React.

He eventually quit the program.

Two great videos on the subject:
