Hi Sofia!

I’m very sorry that you are having a hard time.

I am working on a new course for Egghead that will show more patterns common in real world applications. I hope you will find it helpful. I plan to release it in June.

I’ve dug through almost every example in the GitHub repo to see how things are done and how I can apply those concepts in my own application. I still can’t figure out why I’m having such a hard time.

The biggest problem with our examples right now is that some of them are oversimplified (like “todos”), and some are over-engineered to show a glimpse of real-world usage (“real-world” and “shopping-cart”). However there is no clear sense of progression between them, and it’s easy to miss the essential details.

I hope that the new course will address these issues. In the meantime, the recently added FAQ should address at least some of these questions.

Sure there’s places like Stack Overflow and I’ve even found Twitter to be a helpful resource. There’s something to be said for having a back and forth conversation with someone to really get a good understanding of a concept.

One other place I would suggest is Reactiflux Discord community. It has a #redux channel where people occasionally answer questions, and just reading through the log can also be helpful.

The connect function that ties everything together seems to still be a mystery to me. I know I should really go back and watch the videos where Dan deconstructs it for you but I still wish it was just cemented in my brain how and why it works.

I hope that this clarifies it a little bit:

Am I having a hard time because I haven’t done much functional programming?

I don’t think this is the issue here. Rather, we haven’t documented most of the real-world patterns, and so it’s understandably confusing as you venture out of the comfort zone of a simple todo app.

Stay tuned for the new course. It will also be free.

I hope you will find it helpful!
