This is three-day, introductory-level course designed for students who might be newer to using modern web development skills and standards. This course provides students with the hands-on skills they require to implement the Reactive paradigm to build stateless and asynchronous apps with React.
The course guides students through a detailed ReactJS and its evolution, and then teaches them the practical skills required to build a simple React component. Then students will build the same react component with JSX syntax to demystify its usage. Students will learn how to configure the Facebook Graph API, get their ‘likes’ list, and render it using React.
Next, students will break the UI into components and learn how to establish communication between them and respond to users input/events in order to have the UI reflect their state. Students will also learn core ES6 syntaxes in the process. Then the course will delve into the FLUX and its architecture, which is used to build client-side web applications and complements React’s composable view components by utilizing a unidirectional data flow.
Towards the end of the program, students will learn how to make their components reusable, and how to test and deploy them into a production environment.
Finally, the course will touch on other ‘next-level’ topics such as React on the server side, Redux and other related, useful advanced concepts.
Delegates will learn to:
- Understand the ReactJS basics through an overview
- Install and create your first React component
- Refactor the ReactJS component using JSX
- Integrate your React application with the Facebook login and Graph API, then fetch data from your liked pages in Facebook and display them in a browser
- Handle UI elements events with React, respond to users input, and create stateful components
- Use some core lifecycle events for integration and find out about ES6 syntaxes in the React world
- Understand the FLUX architecture and create an application using FLUX with React
- Make a component more reusable with mixins and validation helpers and structure your components properly
- Explore techniques to test your ReactJS code
- Deploy your code using webpack and Gulp
