About This Workshop

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.

Takeaways

  • A better understanding of React concepts
  • Creating Components, a fundamental building block of React
  • Passing data to a Component via Props
  • Updating State to trigger a re-render of one or more Components
  • Exploring a Components lifecycle
  • Using React Developer Tools to investigate React

Lead Instructor,
General Assembly

Joe always had a passion for technology and after several years in the industry made the move into teaching Microsoft’s Server, Active Directory, and Sharepoint architectures. After working on a client project that involved Tableau and JavaScript, he was inspired to take GA’s Web Development Immersive Boot Camp where he made the decision to specialize in Data Visualization using D3.js. Upon graduation he worked on several D3 specific client projects before returning to GA as an instructor teaching their Front End Web Development and JavaScript evening classes. This ultimately led him into his current role as Lead Instructor for the WDI Bootcamp. He now spends his free time learning all things D3 while encouraging students to incorporate it into every project.
