Not only is React fast, it's popular because it encourages declarative programming by making heavy use of components. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
This series will introduce you to React through hands-on exercises and give you the skills needed to integrate it into your own project.
This class takes place over two consecutive Tuesday evenings, as follows:
Tuesday, December 6th - 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Tuesday, December 13th - 6:30pm to 9:30pm
Your payment registers you for the entire series.
• Build your own React projects
