Hey JavaScripters,

Here we go with another HackJam, this time we'll be teaching how to build isomorphic/ universal React apps! An isomorphic/ universal app runs both on the server-side and client-side. You'll learn to create super fast web sites!

Target audience

This hands-on session has two different repos with two levels of difficulty:

Beginner React developers. The first repo is designed for people with a bit of experience with React and React Router.

Advanced React and Redux developers. The second repo is designed for people with experience using React, React Route, and Redux.

What is a HackJam?

It's a 2 hours free hacking session. You will have a 30 minutes presentation to introduce you the key concepts of the day and then you’ll practise it during 1 hour and a half with the help of our mentors. At the end some attendees will demo their code and we'll share some "lessons learned".

In this free workshop we'll be testing some of the exercises and material that we'll be using in our upcoming React and Redux bootcamps at the ReactJS Academy ( Bear in mind that the material may not be perfect yet in this session, but we'll appreciate your feedback after the session to make it better :)
