React For The Rest Of Us

What you’ll learn

The problem React solves and *why* we should use it (aside from “because it’s popular”)
How to create Single Page Applications with React
The ability to keep your code organized and manageable
How to seamlessly pull real and dynamic data into your front-end

React For The Rest Of Us


A basic understanding of HTML (e.g. “p” is for paragraph, “h1” is for headline, etc…)
You could likely work through this course even without any JavaScript experience given the reasonable pace of lessons, but at least a tiny bit of JavaScript familiarity is recommended and will result in a much more enjoyable experience
No CSS knowledge required (although it helps to understand that CSS is used to add style & design to a page)


Learn the world’s most popular library for creating user interfaces!What makes this course different is we take the time to understand *why* we’re doing what we’re doing. We begin by asking an important question that so many other React courses skip entirely; What problem does React solve?Once we understand what React is and isn’t, we spend the remainder of the course together building the front-end for a real world social media app where you can post, follow other users and even hop into a live chatroom. Along the way we will:Understand what “state” is in React and how to bring our interfaces to lifeUse the modern “hook” approach with Function ComponentsLeverage React Router to create a Single Page Application with shareable URLsSee the power of Context, Reducer, and Immer and create an ideal way of working with stateRun code at the perfect moments by understanding the power of useEffect()Use async HTTP requests to communicate with APIs so that our app feels meaningful by working with real dataDeploy our app up onto the web so you can share it with your friends and familyThis course may be brand new, but this isn’t my first time teaching. I’ve led training sessions for Fortune 500 companies and I’ve already helped over 98,000 people on Udemy and received the following feedback:”Brad definitely has some of the best techniques to embed the lesson into your mind… hands down these are the best tutorials I have had the opportunity to view.””Presentation is concise without being tedious… you honestly feel that you have a thorough understanding of the subject.””…[Brad] explained the process. Not memorize this or that, he explained the process. If you’re looking to take a course to understand the foundations of creating websites, look no further.”Become highly valuable and relevant to the companies that are hiring front-end developers; in one convenient place alongside one instructor. If you’re ready to begin building with React – I’ll see you on the inside!
