A freeCodeCamp Front End Libraries Project

This project was a requirement for the freeCodeCamp Front-End Libraries Certification, and even though it's a relatively simple app, this reworking includes a highly efficient implementation of React Hooks, which makes it worthy of being featured here.

When indoors, I enjoy reading and writing, particularly philosophy. I also enjoy cooking and when I have something specific in mind, I tend to spend way too many hours online looking for the perfect recipe.

I do outdoor activities when weather permits (and sometimes when it doesn't). I enjoy jogging and cycling, and when I have time I like to go hiking and camping.

As far as technology goes, outside of web development I'm interested in cybersecurity and computer networking.
