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.

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 is hands down the most fun I’ve had whilst learning a ton of stuff. Thank you @ryanflorence, @mjackson and @WayfairTech for organizing. Loved how much cool stuff the material covers.

Many thanks @ryanflorence and @mjackson for the fantastic #ReactJS hooks training! Glad I could make it to @ReactTraining’s spring tour. I look forward to putting what I learned into practice when I get home. ✈️ 🇳🇮

@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? 🤨"

The React core team released a new Context API yesterday. @mjackson is already teaching it at @ReactTraining today. It doesn't get more cutting-edge than 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.

Sitting in @ReactTraining listening to @ryanflorence. Wish I'd learned React this way. Would have saved me a bunch of time.

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.
Quoted By Jackie
@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!

Learning @reactjs isn't enough; you must also learn how to *think* about react. @ryanflorence+@mjackson can teach you both, and make it fun!

About the Instructor

Quoted By David Khourshid

David Khourshid

David Khourshid is a Microsoft software engineer with a passion for innovative user interfaces, animations, software modeling, and cutting-edge front-end technologies. He's the creator of XState, a library that brings state machines and statecharts to the modern web in React (and any other framework) and enables app logic to be visualized, simulated, tested, analyzed, and more. He's also half of the Keyframers, a weekly coding live-stream where imaginative user interfaces are brought to life. When not speaking around the world or coding behind a laptop keyboard, he's usually behind a piano keyboard.

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. We'll provide a ~45 minute live-coding lecture where we introduce a new concept by refactoring some code. Then we turn it over to you to work out an exercise--applying the same concepts from the lecture into a different app. During the exercise, we'll walk 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, we'll 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.
