What is React?

  1. React is a popular JavaScript library for building reusable, component-driven user interfaces for web pages or applications;
  2. React combines HTML with JavaScript functionality into its markup language called JSX. React also makes it easy to manage the data flow throughout the application;
  3. In this course, you'll learn how to create different React components, manage data in state props, work with the actual API representing the backend, and much more.

What you will learn in the course

  • You will start by understanding the basics of React, including SPAs vs. MPAs, the Virtual DOM, JSX, and rendering elements;
  • You will then learn how to create and style React components using various methods, such as inline styles, CSS files, and CSS modules;
  • Next, you will delve into React Hooks and Context, exploring useState, useRef, useEffect, and useMemo hooks, and managing global state with Context;
  • Finally, you will set up your development environment, including configuring a code editor, setting up the project folder, using the terminal, and starting a React project.
