    • Introduction to Props
    • (Quiz) Props
    • (Practice) Props

    • Why React?
    • The React Ecosystem
    • (Bonus) Imperative vs Declarative Programming

      While taking the course I felt I didn't get a whole lot of value from the project sections. I ended up mostly transcribing code from the video which was of limited learning value. I think it would have helped to make these sections more open-ended and set up clearer expectations for how they were intended to be worked through. Aside from the content I also ran into a few UX issues: - having to scroll to the bottom of the page to get to the "next lesson" button - no control over video size which made the content difficult to see when I couldn't play the video full-screen - no easy way to give feedback aside from review button at end of the course

      Best course on REACT hands down. I have tried couple courses before and always felt the instructors didn't explain enough. Or when starting new topic instead of teaching it without context they start to apply it to big e-commerce project and you are left wondering how to implement new techniques in others projects. Thank you Tyler for this wonderful course, I still yet to start last project, I know I will have to reference back previous lessons to remind myself about concepts and syntax. However I finally feel I will be able to become a React developer. And I will definitely check out rest of courses too.

      As someone who has been working with React for a few years now, this course really allowed me to move from being able to use React to understanding how it actually works.

      Hands down the best and only course you will need to learn React. I loved Tyler's approach of teaching and he has structured the lessons brilliantly. I am excited already to implement the new concepts I learnt in this course, at work. Amazing experience :)
