  1. There is a missing chunk of code on the bottom of the first code block for App.js. The code does not work as it is. If you are stuck there, use the following code.

    import ‘./App.css’;
    import { useState, useEffect } from ‘react’;
    import { formatUserName } from ‘./utils’;

    function App() {
    const [users, setUsers] = useState([]);
    // load data from server

    useEffect(()=> {
    let mounted = true;
    const getUsers = async () => {
    await fetch(‘https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/users’)
    .then(response => response.json())
    .then((data) => {
    if (mounted) {

    return (


    users.map( user => (
    { user.name } { formatUserName(user.username) }


    export default App;
