Styled Components and React-Boilerplate with Max Stoiber
Max the Intern
What's His Reaction?
After 2 months of his 3 month intership Max had the basics down. For the last month he focused on React.
Max then taught the company the basics of React. He was partnered with some of the engineers and built two projects. To eliminate the redundancy of the folders he created on both he copied and pushed out to GitHub.
Making React Easy For Himself
That was the start of React-Boilerplate. Max was trying to simplify the processes he did on every project with a boilerplate of redundant files.
By the end of 2016, it had about 50-60 stars on GitHub. Then on December 27, 2016 Max was skiing in the mountains and happened to look at his GitHub notifications. Overnight, React-Boilerplate had gone from 50 stars to 500 stars.
