React.js is one of the most popular front end frameworks. Companies like Facebook, Netflix, and Eventbrite are using it to power blazing-fast web apps that make interacting with users faster than ever before.
This is a three week, cohort-based class that will introduce you to the basic concepts you need to understand to work with React.js. This class offers 12 hours of instructional training and is limited in attendance to ensure for maximum instructor support. The class will meet six times on the following dates and times:
PLEASE NOTE THIS CLASS IS BEING OFFERED IN PST (Start times on EST are 9-11pm)
You'll learn why React is so powerful as a framework, work through exercises to learn the basics, and build an Instagram-like project from scratch. By the end, you will be comfortable with concepts such as React components, JSX, props, state, and basic React hooks, including the React Context API.
All of the above ES 6 requirements will be covered in GDI's Intro to ES6 class, meant as a precursor to this React class.
