About This Workshop

React is quickly becoming the front end framework of choice for modern UI developers and it’s not hard to see why. React is a developer friendly ecosystem which takes advantage of the best of JavaScript, including EcmaScript 2015 (aka ES6). It features a declarative style without forcing you to learn framework specific syntax.

In this introductory workshop, you'll understand the benefits of the React framework and higher-level concepts of React components, the React Lifescycle and more. Through code samples, a code-along lecture, and lab time, you’ll build and practice with React. Specifically, you'll see an in-production example and walk through its details. You will learn everything you need to know to effectively develop with React including: setup with NPM, Webpack and Babel, and best-practices for building components.

Takeaways

  • Learn the benefits of React and its modular capability
  • Know how to setup with NPM and other tools
  • Develop best-practices and insights towards constructing components and using them in your projects

Prereqs & Preparation

  • Must have JavaScript and HTML experience. Experience working with another front end framework such as Angular, Ember, or Backbone is a plus but not necessary.
  • Bring a laptop to class with Sublime (or other IDE) and Node.js installed.
  • Basic familiarity working with terminal a plus, but not required.
