So you want to learn React?

Here are some common approaches

  • Random Blogs

    It's not that blog posts are bad, it's that finding and piecing together unrelated yet up to date posts that form a linear, cohesive path to learning complex technical topics is hard.

  • Youtube Videos

    It's happened to all of us, one moment you're using Youtube to learn about React's useEffect Hook and the next you're watching a "KIDS REACT TO PAYPHONES" video. Finding a high-quality, up-to-date YouTube video that effectively answers all of your questions on a JavaScript topic might actually be more difficult than finding a needle in a haystack. With so many videos and zero quality control, it’s easy to get sucked down the YouTube rabbit hole for hours without getting much learning out of it.

  • Live Workshops

    You know what they say, the best learning happens sitting in a classroom for 8 hours at a time listening to dry lectures and working through practice problems that only serve to make you feel comfortable so you’ll feel like you learned something. Oh wait, no. No one says that.

  • Conferences

    Things conferences are great for - networking, travelling on your company's dime, free swag, finding other companies to join. Things conferences are not great for - learning in depth technical topics that you will remember and put into practice literally 3 days later when you’re back at the office, quality wifi.

  • All-In-One Subscriptions

    These are the larger companies that offer courses on seemingly every technology under the sun. We won’t name them, but chances are your company has a business subscription to at least one of them and chances are that you don’t use it much. Their courses are made by a wide assortment of third-party contractors and optimized for production quality, not educational value.

The better approach?

All our courses follow the same proven structure, optimized for knowledge, not the illusion of learning.

  • Effort

    We're obsessed with making the most effective developer education content on the planet. On average, it takes us around 1,900 hours to create a new course. While others prioritize quantity, we optimize for quality.

  • Non-Contextual Analysis

    The first time you're introduced to a topic, any extra contextual information you have to process only serves as a distraction. Although it takes more time, our non-contextual analysis comes in two forms, video and text. This way, no matter how you prefer to learn, there's an option for you.

  • Quiz

    Nothing fancy here. After learning about the topic you'll receive a quiz to make sure you have a solid conceptual understanding before moving on to the hands-on practice.

  • Non-Contextual Practice

    Similar to the non-contextual analysis, context is everything. The first time you're hands-on with a new topic, any extra contextual information you have to process only serves as a distraction. This is why we first have you work through small, focused practice problems before you ever see the new topic in the context of a larger project.

  • Contextual Practice

    You've probably experienced it before, you feel like you're learning so much going through a tutorial only to hit a wall once it's time to actually apply that knowledge outside of the context of the tutorial. All the non-contextual practice in the world is useless if you're not then able to take that knoweldge and apply it towards a (contextual) production level codebase.

The result?

React Mastery

The ability to take what you learn and apply it towards a production codebase

  • Hype

    • A continuous climb of the stairs towards mastery. Tyler is a true expert, because it takes an expert to make a complex topic this simple.

    • I had read the React documentation before taking this course, so I didn't think I would learn anything new. However, I found that this course refined my understanding of the documentation, helped teach me techniques I didn't know I didn't know, and gave me a greater sense of confidence as a developer. Thank you for the quality content, Tyler!

    • This React course was as React itself. Simple, clear and brilliant. Thanks Tyler for the effort! I liked the detail and structure of this course and I liked it is not the 999 beginner React tutorial. ;)

    • I've taken a few React courses and this is the one that finally made things click for me. The combination of explanations of the reasons behind certain React concepts, and the practical application of those concepts really helps the information stick. I highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn React.

    • This course is great! It starts from the ground up and teaches you concepts you won't learn in most courses or bootcamps! I really enjoyed learning about webpack and babel under the hood.

    FAQ

    • What makes these courses different from other online courses?

      Our courses are designed to teach you everything you need to know to confidently write production-ready code. The tradeoff is it will require more work and focus than a course that features a few bite-sized screencasts. Real learning takes time, but you can feel confident that once you've finished a course, you’ll have mastered everything you need to know with minimal knowledge gaps.

    • Do the courses have captions?

      Yes.

    • How long should I expect each course to take?

      Naturally, it depends. Considering all our courses are comprised of video, text, quizzes, practice problems, and curriculum - 15-30 hours per course is a safe assumption.

    • In which order should I take the courses?

      If you're comfortable with JavaScript (including ES6) and want to jump straight to React, go with "React", "React Hooks", then any other course that looks interesting. If you're not comfortable with JavaScript, start with "Modern JavaScript", then "Advanced JavaScript", then any other course you'd like.

    • What level of experience is required for getting the most out of these courses?

      A fundamental understanding of JavaScript or familiarity with another programming language. For example, you should be comfortable with functions, arguments, loops, control flow, etc. If you want to jump straight in to the React courses, we recommend having a stronger knowledge of JavaScript, which you can get from our JavaScript courses if you’re unsure.

    • How does the subscription work?

      Like Netflix. You pay $40 per month or $350 per year for access to all our courses, premium newsletters, and events. Your subscription will be active until you cancel, which you can do at any time in your dashboard.

    • I need an official invoice with certain fields like VAT. Can I get one?

      Once you sign up, as part of the welcome email, you'll be given a link to fill out where you can input all your company's info.

    • What projects will I build throughout the courses

      You can find every project on the /projects page.

      A lot of the concepts and lessons for this course assume that you've been programming much longer than I have been. As a result, there were several stages of the course where I felt that I was out of my league and that I was ill-prepared. Tyler's instructional style and the course docs and videos are very straight-forward and scaffolded well. I learned a lot, but it's very obvious that my foundational programming skills are lacking and that I should look elsewhere and spend a lot more time in more introductory JavaScript courses before returning to this site. I certainly don't regret paying for the course, though, and I can see the value of this site and its courses and will be returning when I have learned more of the prerequisite programming skills needed to be more successful.

      Really amazing course. Tyler breaks down the why as well as the how on React and this went a long way in helping my understanding of the material. Definitely worth the subscription.

      Overall, I found the course helpful. I didn't know anything about React. Now, I know something about React. The course structure alternates between instructional chapters where you learn a new skill and a project chapter where you deploy that skill to build another part of the app you are creating. Having the two parts is helpful. Some of the instructional chapters are long and can be IMHO confusing. You learn various ways of doing something (this is probably good). But, as a result, you're often sort of doing something, then undoing it when a better way is introduced a little later on. The React course does take a lot of time. Sometimes, I spent an hour or two on a chapter when the video is only about 10 or 15 minutes. I stopped and started the video and took really detailed notes. Hopefully, this pays off in the long run.

      This course was great. It was a challenging course but easy to get through. I like that there's an additional project at the end to work through independently.

      I will absolutely be recommending this course, thank you for making it. If you want feedback I only have one suggestion - there are a few things I'm still stuck on and would be amazing to have an FAQ to access (assuming you can't scale something like office hours) at certain parts in the course.

      I've attempted to take a couple of courses (youtube, udemy, and now yours) on React and this is the only one where I actually made it all the way through. I'm kind of disappointed that there weren't more practice problems (the ones on CodePen), I felt like I would've learned a little more quickly if there were. Also the handling form state section felt a all over the place, I had a really hard time following and staying engaged in that one. Outside of those minor problems, I'm super happy. Tyler is great at teaching this stuff and I'll happily recommend your site / content to friends.

      In one sentence: this is the best React and Redux course you can find .This course contains really detailed clarification of different React concepts. . This is the best of the best!! If you can only learn one course on React JS, look no far, this is it!. Tyler is also the best instructor. The course is super organized. And the pace of the course is very comfortable. You can follow him step by step with no problem. And the All material is up to date, as guaranteed by Tyler.

      I happened to find a link to your site in the React documentation and I would give you an A+ on your introduction to React. My interest in React started about a year ago. I tried to teach myself the typical ways, reading posts, short videos and a couple of online learning courses. None of those gave me a good enough foundation to try to use it for a production project. I have been sticking with what I am comfortable with. I like the fact we were building a project, but doing it in logical incrementation steps while getting an introduction to those steps in isolation from the project itself. While create--react-app is a nice command line tool, I had no idea how to do it bare bones and just add the necessary piece. I am attempting to build the hacker news app without looking at any of your code and also taking the liberty to add some of my own twists to the UI. I look forward to Hooks class.

      I really like the way Tyler explains things. He keeps things simple and makes sure to instill good foundational concepts while along the way.
