Udacity React Nano Degree focuses on project-based learning. This course that walks me through building a project, and then do a project on my own using what I have learned. I really like this approach. Also Udacity focuses on getting their students to build real world applications. The React Nano Degree program is broken into 3 projects: 1.Build an app using React (My Reads: A Book Tracking App). 2.Build an app using React and Redux (Readable). 3.Build a mobile (iOS and Android) app using React Native (Mobile Flashcards). The final project is based on React Native. I was really looking forward to this part because I already working as an Android Mobile application developer. Now I am building apps for android platform only. After learning React Native, I able to build apps for both Android and IOS platforms. I am glad Udacity included it. Finally end of each project, my project reviewers provide good review report and some valuable improvement points. Overall, it was a very good program that gives me an opportunity to build actual applications using a wide variety of tools in the React world. Such as React, React-Router, Redux and React Native so on. Udaciy also provide supplemental courses on ES6 (the latest version of JavaScript), GitHub and AJAX Requests. Anyway, Learning React is a great idea, and learning it with Udacity is an even better idea. Now I’m going to graduate of their frontend developer program, and the price was totally worth it. It was a pleasure to join your degree program. Thank You very much.

I do recommend the React Nanodegree by Udacity. It really took my existing React knowledge to the next level but you also get to be part of the community behind the course which is great. My mentor was helpful and replied fast and relevant to my questions which got me unblocked in no time. A word of warning though, the course is intense and you need an adequate level of skill before beginning. I recommend this to professional developers at every level who want to learn the in's and out's of React. It requires a fair amount of sustained effort during the 3 months so if you're doing it alongside your existing job it will be very challenging. Overall, it was a great experience!

Kevien F.

Through this program, I found out how messed up was my state management in my previous development process. I was able to build an application with proper management of its state and optimized code. I was able to build application which some of them was same with a real world application. I had no such knowledge with React at first and had a difficulty on learning on my own. But through this program, it made my learning at ease. The reviews at the end of each project submissions were also great since it helps the students improve their work. Great experience I had with this Nano degree course!

Cody B.

This was a great course. Part 3 seemed like a huge jump from Part 1 and Part 4 in complexity and leaving the student almost without enough direction/course materials. Part 2 and Part 4 addressed almost all necessary parts in the materials/videos whereas Part 3 seemed to not touch on things needed for the project. However, this did help force me to go to the Redux docs and continue learning, but at the same time made it a bit annoying to pay for a course that did not itself teach everything needed. That said, I would recommend it to others.

Edper C.

It very much meet my expectation although the delivery for the Redux topic could probably improved in terms of its content. The example project has in my opinion medium-level of difficulty but it is complicated by non-Redux stuff that could probably be do away with or done in a lesser degree. It would be better that Redux could be done in a very simple project first and then move up with middle-level-type of difficulty project with api content also for fetching/updating data.

Miguel S.

I learn a lot!, I feel really lucky to be able to find this kind of material to learn. Videos are short and to the point, and reference to other material available online is curated and you can really feel that you are learning from expert on the field. The review system implemented helps a lot since you actually get your code seen by people that can help you to pick better practices, or show you better ways to code.
