In this beginner friendly series on React, we'll start a new project from scratch with Create React App, and step by step, build a functional and relatively useful React app that lets you find inspiration on "baby names", with search and shortlisting functionality.

Through the lessons, we'll cover an introduction to JSX, approach concepts like props, state, React hooks, "thinking in components", and embrace a progressive refactoring mindset.

Once the app is complete, we'll look at how to reduce prop drilling with the use of the Context API, and we'll even create our own custom React hook!
