More Info

React is a library for building HTML user interfaces. It is the "view" in a Model-View-Controller application. Created by the UI wizards at Facebook, top websites like Instagram, Netflix, Airbnb, Bleacher Report and Feedly use it. React is the 6th most starred project on GitHub and grows more popular every day.

In this two-day workshop, we will introduce you to React. On the first day, we will work through a series of increasingly more complicated tutorial exercises. Along the way, we will explain concepts like JSX, immutability, statefulness, one-way data flow, components, and virtual DOM.

With the basics out of the way, we will spend the second-day building a complex application which will put React through its paces and give us a chance to explore most of its features. Then we will learn how to think in React. We will show you how to go from design to components to working application. We will wrap the weekend with a quick preview of React Native, which allows you to use your React skills to create cross-platform mobile apps.
