A course

doesn’t have to be long

to be effective. This course skips over the boring introductions and summaries and quickly demonstrates, in code,

how to create React applications

. This is a particularly helpful format for

experienced developers

who are wanting to learn React. I am an

experienced video course author

with more than 25 years of software engineering experience and 10 years of experience creating technical front-end development learning content.

This course begins by teaching you

how to create a new React application

from scratch using create-react-app, including an introduction to how the plumbing of how a React app is bootstrapped. You’ll learn what react is, how it uses ReactDOM to efficiently render content and the important parts of React’s unique JSX syntax.

In addition, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create your own React components
  • Style your components with CSS, CSS modules, and SASS
  • Display data and images in your components
  • Share data across components
  • Manage component state (data that changes over time) with the state() hook
  • Respond to user events like mouse clicks
  • Define and link to URLs, routes, and pages
  • Use URL Query and Route Parameters
  • Share state (data) across multiple components
  • Access API data with the fetch() and React’s effect() hook

You’ll learn all this and more as we

build an e-commerce website

that’s both

interesting and relevant

to modern web development. The application built can be accessed on GitHub and the GitHub repo contains a checkpoint for each video in the course, so you can easily explore the application at any given point in the course.

Who this course is for:

  • This is a FAST-paced course intended for developers who are brand new to React.
  • You don’t need to be an expert developer to learn React from this course, but brand-new developers may find it too fast-paced.
  • Experienced developers will love the fast pace and focus on the quick delivery of the most critical information.
  • Non-developers and brand-new developers may find this course too fast-paced.
