Support our Scholarship Program!

GDI rejects the stereotypes that women and non-binary individuals aren’t interested in technology and that people can’t learn tech as adults. GDI chooses to focus on affordable education services for adults who might otherwise be unable to access tech classes, letting them know it’s never too late for them to learn. We are raising $7,200 before May to provide 10 more scholarships in 2023. Please make a donation today and support our scholarships.

React 2 Cohort - Build an eCommerce Web App

FrontEnd Classes

About this event

If you already have the basics of HTML, CSS and JavaScript covered, learning React is a great next step in your frontend or programming journey!

React is one of the most commonly used JavaScript libraries for frontend development today. It helps developers efficiently and easily create reusable components that make up the UI (user interface) of dynamic web and mobile applications.

In this followup to our Intro to React beginner series, you’ll revisit the fundamentals and then learn cool new concepts and best practices as you build a basic eCommerce web app from scratch!

This six-class series will cover:

  • How to structure a robust React project
