If you've been working with React in production for a while and are looking to level up, this is it. We’ll revisit the fundamentals of React that you may have skipped in order to get the job done™. Take a step back with us, and then several huge steps forward as we explore the power that hooks give you over your day-to-day code as well as your reusable abstractions. After this, you’ll write code that makes you grin wider than any other code you've written before, composing UI and behaviors with uncommon clarity.
If you're a seasoned React developer, there's no better way to get caught up on Hooks and what it means for your code and team than this workshop. You’ll get priceless insights into how Hooks will help you build great abstractions for your team that will work in new and mature code-bases. Finally, you’ll leave with the vocabulary and real-world examples to help you teach and lead your team to be successful with React in a Hooks world.
If you are thinking about attending a @ReactTraining workshop, stop thinking and just do it. So many light bulbs have been going off the last two days with hooks and context. I had a basic understanding before the workshop but now I feel like I can build anything! #reactjs
@ReactTraining was the best training I've had in almost 30 years of professional life. It's pretty rare to have someone teach you that has the "creds" you have and also be good at teaching and have such a pleasant teaching demeanor. Plus you were funny as hell to boot.
After @ReactTraining's React workshop this week, I'm looking at my old code with fresh eyes like "Who wrote this? 🤨"
Shoutout to @ryanflorence 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾 for his amazing React Workshop. I can now say I'm 250% more comfortable transitioning from classes to function components with hooks, Suspense is cool AF, & I'm set to refactor for more declarative components.
The technical content ... from @ryanflorence is terrific. Perhaps more impressive is his teaching style. One of the best examples of how to effectively teach advanced concepts in practical, digestible chunks.
@ryanflorence I've been scouring the internet and watching React tutorials nightly for the last month since starting my new job and your React course has been by far the best one I've found. Thank you making such a stellar tutorial!
About the Instructors
Ryan and Michael have taught React to thousands of developers at hundreds of workshops around the world for the last four years. Their teaching style is engaging, code heavy, and a ton of fun (some have said the events should be billed as standup comedy 😂, but you learn way too much for that to be accurate).
Not only are they great teachers but also experienced practitioners. You know them as the authors of React Router, Unpkg, and Reach UI--all projects that have become staple pieces of the React ecosystem. Outside of the React core team, it’s hard to imagine a couple of people who have influenced React more than these two. You will love learning from them.
What To Expect
Bring your laptop because you’re going to be writing a lot of code. Each day follows a cycle: lecture, exercise, Q&A, break, repeat. Michael and Ryan will provide a ~45 minute live-coding lecture where they introduce a new concept by refactoring some code. Then they turn it over to you to work out an exercise--applying the same concepts from the lecture into a different app. During the exercise, they will wander around the room, giving you time for one-on-one questions and help with the exercise. If you're faster than the rest of the group you’re encouraged to help those around you. The best way to learn is to teach! After that, Ryan and Michael code up a solution and then open it up for group Q&A. You'll learn a lot, have some fun, and meet some great people, too.
