Deepen your fundamental understanding of React's composition model and dig into some advanced, real-world use cases like animating route transitions, manage data caching, and real-time updates.

We'll also be covering React's latest feature, hooks, in depth. Hooks promise to simplify your React code and make building clean, reusable abstractions easier and faster than ever.

Who Should Attend?

No matter how much experience you have with React, you're sure to gain a lot from this workshop.


If all you've done is the official React tutorial then you are ready for this workshop. We’ll be starting from the fundamentals of React for rendering, composition, and UI updates and moving through to advanced use-cases. Because of React's latest feature, hooks, we're able to cover topics with beginners that we previously reserved for our Advanced trainings. The most important thing to be ready for this workshop if you're a React beginner is to be comfortable with JavaScript and browser development than with React.


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.


About the Instructors

Michael Jackson Heashot

Ryan Florence Heashot

Ryan Florence

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.

React Router

Michael Jackson and Ryan Florence create the React libraries that you use in your apps like React Router and Reach UI. All of our trainers are experts in React and JavaScript so let us share our knowledge with you and your team!
