About this workshop

React is one of the fastest growing JavaScript libraries for building interactive, data-driven applications. There's never been a better time to learn React.

Choosing the right front-end framework to build out a user interface is crucial to the success of any app. React has been a game changer in the way people think about structuring and building out the user interface. This Livestream will explore the benefits of learning React and why so many companies are migrating to this new framework to build out their front-end. We will take a look at the inner workings of React, such as reusable Components, passing data via Props, using State to manage unidirectional data flow, and explore the components lifecycle. We will also learn how to get started working with React and build out an app while applying these new skills.
