The Outline

  • Course Overview

    • Introduction, Philosophy, and Tips
    • Projects (What you'll build)
    • State of React

    We'll start the course off with some housekeeping items. You'll learn about the best strategy for getting the most out of the course as well as what you'll build and the current state of React.

  • Passing Data to Components

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

    With any component based system you need a way to pass data into component. In this section, we'll cover how to do that in React with props.

  • Functional Components

    • Pure Functions
    • (Quiz) Pure Functions
    • (Project) Language Nav

    With React there are two ways to create components. In this section, you'll learn one of those ways utilizing pure functions.

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

      I took this course to see what I was missing in React and it turned out I learned more things about JavaScript...lol. Other than that it had a great pace and I would recommend it to anyone (err everyone)!

      It is very easy to learn for beginner like me. I like the way you break up each lesson into smaller undertandable reasonings. I will recommend this to anybody who wants to learn React.

      I found this course after buying a React textbook, but not making much progress. The book was complete, but dry, and I didn't have any Eureka moments. This course was valuable to me, as an experienced developer looking to wrap my head around a foreign approach to web development. I'll definitely be keeping my subscription and taking other courses. Next stop: hooks. Thanks for the great content!

      Hi Tyler. I graduated from a web development bootcamp and I have to just say wow was this React course amazing! At the bootcamp I recently graduated from we spent about a week and a half learning react and we only used functional components and hooks (it was knee jerk reaction at every turn). The bootcamp also didn't invest enough resources to explain React concepts like you did. But wow does it make it easier to make components when you get a grasp of lifecycles, imbed your state in class components, and use functional components when you just need to render some UI. Your course lead to more AHA moments, as you described, than anything I've studied so far. I loved how you started the course right from the beginning (no shortcuts like using boilerplate create-react-app). If anyone asks me where they should start with React I'll definitely recommend your course platform. And again, Thank you so much!
