React Beginners Workshop
Submitted by Siddharth Kshetrapal (@sidkp) on Saturday, 3 June 2017
On the surface, React may look like just a view library, but there is big ecosystem that revolves around it. This workshop starts with understanding the basic internals of React before exploring how to “think in React”, best practices and solutions to real problems that you will experience while building an application.
This workshop will get you up to speed just in time for reactfoo.
- Fundamental concepts of React
- Virtual DOM
Learning the methods of React is important, but useless without learning how to “think in React”. Let’s understand the patterns that make your components extremely reusable and your application more declarative.
- Thinking in React
- Stateless components + JSX
Let’s take things to the next level and explore how to build real world applications that handle state and deal with data. If you have heard of state management libraries like redux or mobx, you’ll learn how and more importantly when to use them to get the maximum benefit.
- Stateful components
- Lifecycle methods
- Data fetching
- State management
Wrap things up with making your application maintainable and future proof with testing. This is also where we explore potential performance bottlenecks that infest React applications.
Who is this workshop for?
