Improve your skills and gain hands-on experience

Take a deep dive into React

About the React training

React is a UI library, but there is a vast ecosystem of libraries around React to help you creating applications. When learning React, it's hard to follow one path with this amount of tutorials and articles teaching different methods and techniques. In this training we'll take a different approach. The training modules are connected linearly, providing a smooth path to learn React. After the training you will be able to:

  • use React in an existing application
  • create custom React components
  • properly style a React application
  • connect your React application to a back-end

You'll understand what problems React solves and how it works under the hood. After we do the initial setup and explain the tooling, we'll start with explaining about ES6 and features we use to write React apps. We're going to learn the ins and outs of:

  • JSX
  • rendering and creating components
  • customizing components and props
  • different state management strategies
  • stateless components
  • lifecycle methods

After we're sure that you can handle the basics, we'll move on to including react-router and a state management library. At the end of each chapter we'll do a lab to verify the knowledge of the attendees. When you're done with the training you'll end up with a fully functional React app.
