Have you heard about React but never tried it? Or you have been using it, but want to see what’s new with React 16+?
Lets take a fresh look at React as we build a simple React Application.
Lets discuss how to build on top of small components to create production ready applications.
In this workshop, we will take a look at composition in React.
We will delve into React fundamentals- Simple/Stateless components, Small Applications, life cycles, state management, hooks, composition/inherintance, and more.
We will then build a small Application using CRA and look at tooling used to build it and how to extend and deploy it.
We will then discuss, some deployment strategies for React Applications.
