Workshop Overview & Topics

This workshop is for beginners and more experienced React developers alike. Since we cover the mechanics of React in great detail, we find it works really well for beginners who need React to feel less perplexing. We also find that those with up to about 18 months of experience often comment they learned a lot about parts of React they never understood.


Attendees will receive an email with their Zoom URL and instructions workshop code about one week prior to the event. There's plenty of instructions for installing the code even if you're new to Node and NPM. This is just a high-level overview of the many topics we'll cover in the event including pre-requisites:

Honestly, @cassidoo was such a great instructor! 10/10 would recommend @ReactTraining — feeling like a React wizard now. 🧙‍♂️
Thanks again @mjackson for running another great @ReactTraining session here at @Yello! #reactjs #chicago

Had 2 awesome days of @ReactTraining in Chicago with @ryanflorence and @mjackson I highly recommend it. Now I'll go home and rewrite all my code 🙃

JavaScript Logo

Not Good At JavaScript?

That's okay, as long as attendees can program in any language, they should be fine in the workshop. Having some JS and DOM experience will help attendees a lot though. We have a JavaScript Primer article that helps attendees get caught up on modern JS syntax. We always do our best to pace the workshop for the most average needs of the group and that often means we teach JavaScript while we teach React.

TypeScript Logo

TypeScript or JavaScript?

While this workshop isn't about TypeScript specifically, we do have our material in TypeScript because it has become immensely popular to use and most of our clients ask for it. If attendees don't do TS, don't worry we'll teach the very basics as we go and it's not a distraction from React.

We've had the pleasure of training many amazing brands.
