Learn React the right way

It’s easy to get lost without proper guidance and path to follow.
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.
Fundamental concepts of React
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
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.
State & Lifecycle methods
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.
