Fix Uncaught Error Objects are not valid as a React child

New Course Coming Soon:

Get Really Good at Git

This error might happen because you’ve got a React component and you’re rendering a prop in the JSX, like this, but you forgot to destructure the prop when initializing the component parameters:

function MyComponent(test) {
	return <p>{test}</p>
}

You should do this instead:

function MyComponent({ test }) {
	return <p>{test}</p>
}

The component receives a props object and we commonly use object destructuring to get the props “mapped” to variables, like {test} in our example.

Are you intimidated by Git? Can’t figure out merge vs rebase? Are you afraid of screwing up something any time you have to do something in Git? Do you rely on ChatGPT or random people’s answer on StackOverflow to fix your problems? Your coworkers are tired of explaining Git to you all the time? Git is something we all need to use, but few of us really master it. I created this course to improve your Git (and GitHub) knowledge at a radical level. A course that helps you feel less frustrated with Git. Launching May 21, 2024. Join the waiting list!
