What You Will Learn



Master the skills necessary to become a successful React developer. Students will go on a project-based learning journey to build declarative user interfaces (UI components) for web applications using React, to make state more predictable in their applications with Redux, and make their apps more efficient and robust using newer React features and the Jest testing library. Students will also have an optional opportunity to develop mobile apps for iOS and Android devices using React Native.

Prerequisite Knowledge

  • React Fundamentals

    Learn React fundamentals, which can pose a bit of a challenge, because while the modularity of the React ecosystem makes it really powerful for building applications, there is a great deal to learn. So we’ll break everything down, and enable you to learn the foundational parts of the React ecosystem that are necessary to build production-ready apps.

  • React & Redux

    Redux excels at state management, and in this course, you’ll learn how React and Redux work together to make your application’s state bulletproof. As with the previous course, the React & Redux course offers hands-on learning to build projects.

  • Optional Course: React Native

    Develop React applications that run on both iOS and Android devices using React Native. You’ll explore everything from setting up a proper development environment to building and styling a cross-platform mobile application. You’ll incorporate native APIs such as geolocation and local notifications, and even learn how to get your app ready for the App and Google Play Store.
