Look inside

You’ve just been hired as a software programmer for SongRiver, a music-streaming startup whose success is skyrocketing. With so many new employees, it’s hard to keep everyone straight, so the internal tools team has asked you to add a page for each employee as the first step toward building an employee directory app. You’ll set up a React Router to provide access to employee information. Using React Query, you’ll fetch employee data from the server so that it can be added to the employee page. Finally, you’ll use Chakra UI to display the employee data according to the provided specifications. When you’re finished, you’ll have created a page that accepts and provides access to employee data—and your manager will be humming a happy tune.
