What Is React?

ReactJS is a JavaScript library that has become the tool of choice for easily building dynamic user interfaces. The power is in the Virtual Dom β€” when your application's data changes, React figures out which parts of your document need to be changed, and immediately update only those parts.

Hundreds of thousands of developers from small agencies to large companies use React to deliver top notch experiences in their apps and dynamic website components.

Like who? is made up of thousands of React components. Instagram web viewer is entirely built in React. The brand new Netflix movie browsing experience is powered by React. And many, many more...



Is this hooks or components based React?

This course uses a version of React that is class components. The course will be re-recorded shortly to use hooks.

I lost my email. Can you resend me my access + receipt info?

Log into your account, or create an account with the same email you used to buy the series.

What version of React was this created for?

This series was just totally re-recorded in March 2018 to reflect the latest changes and best practices in React 16.3, React Router 4 and Firebase 3.

How long do I get access for?

There is no time limit, and no monthly/yearly fee to keep access. Log in whenever you like and the course will be there for you!

Do you provide a certificate of completion?

Sure do! In your course dashboard you can download an official certificate of completion that can be used to be reimbursed by your employer or land that dream job you are applying for.

What format are the videos? How do I watch them? Can I download them?

Once you buy a package, you will be mailed access to a course viewer area where you can stream all the videos. Buyers of the Master Package will also be able to download them for offline viewing. All the videos were recorded at 1920×1080.

Does this video series cover Flux? Redux? Fluxible? Reflux? Alt? Flummox? Marty.js? McFly? Lux? Material Flux? Nuclear.js? Fluxette? Flipity Flop? Fluppity Floop?

React is amazing in that there are many libraries that work really well with it. While those libraries are fantastic, they may add unnecessary abstractions when learning. The creator of Redux even says so.

So, this course is focused on you absolutely nailing React and walking away feeling confident in your understanding, hungry to learn and build more. Once you finish this course, you can take my free Learn Redux as a perfect next step.
