You made it! Get yourself some ice cream or a slice of pie: you definitely deserve it.
Will there be a chapters 8+ of the tutorial? We've spent a lot of time getting our features working but not much time with optimization and polish. Premature optimization is the root of all evil, but once your site is live and you've got real users on it you'll get a sense of what could be faster, prettier or more efficient. That's when time spent optimizing can pay huge dividends. But, discovering the techniques and best practices for those optimizations...that's a whole different story. The kind of story that Redwood loves to help you write!
So until next time, a bit of wisdom to help combat that next bout of every developer's nemesis, imposter syndrome:
"There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self." — Ernest Hemingway
Want to add some more features to your app? Check out some of our how to's like calling to a third party API and deploying an app without an API at all. We've also got lots of guides for more info on Redwood's internals.
Check out our Roadmap to see where we're headed and how we're going to get there. If you're interested in helping with anything you see, just let us know over on the RedwoodJS Forum and we'll be happy to get you set up.
What do you think of Redwood? Is it the Next Step for JS frameworks? What can it do better? We've got a lot more planned. Want to help us build these upcoming features?
Thanks for following along. Now go out and build something amazing!
