Tinkering

I've been hearing a lot about ReactJS and how it is painless to create interactive UIs with it. I'll be studying and learning about this JavaScript library and finding ways to integrate it into my current workflow. I'm hoping to find a lot of value in this library since it is based on component-driven logic.
