IMPORTANT: There are many courses for you to choose from when learning about React. Most of those courses do not focus on React, they are unfocused bootcamp style courses where a thousand topics are covered and the “biggest projects ever” are undertaken. This course, Getting Started with React, is not like that by design. Most React developers need training on the core aspects of React not endless related library APIs and so-called big projects. In-person, I teach experienced React developers almost everyday and most of them lack the fundamental skills needed to build React applications correctly. This course walks through, step-by-step, how to build React components the right way by focusing on React (not a 1000 other topics) and exploring/explaining best practices. Beware of 40 hour courses which most students never finish and contain topics you will never need. Instead focus on this shorter, more focused course which you can finish in a day and employ your new skills in your work tomorrow (or even tonight)!

In this course, Getting Started with React, professional React Trainer, Eric Greene, will walk you through the essentials of building React web applications. This content is the same content (plus some extras) that he covers in his Introduction to React courses which he delivers around the world to companies from the Fortune 100 to Silicon Valley tech startups. The course is delivered as 100% live coding with occasional diagrams. No boring content slides, just real coding all the way through. The focus of the course is on the core knowledge and techniques of React so that the students gain mastery of the topic without being distracted by unrelated or secondary side topics.

Throughout the course Eric highlights particularly challenging areas where his students over the years have gotten stuck when learning Redux. He then explains and demonstrates what is really happening to help the student overcome those difficulties. The emphasis in the course is best practices and patterns with a goal of learning important conceptual ideas. This is not a course about the React API, its a course about using the React API properly to build great web applications!

As part of the course presentation, Eric will share with you the correct and incorrect thought processes which many developers go through to build React components. The goal is not mastery of the React API, but mastery of correctly using the React API. Building component trees which follow best practices and patterns is at the heart of great React programming. Eric’s goal is to help you avoid common pitfalls and incorrect coding approaches which feel easy in the moment, but end up leading to lots of problems down the road. Eric will explain the proper use of props and component state and the importance of mastering the communication of data between components in the component tree. As part of that discussion important topics such as prop types, default props, custom hooks (for reusable state management), etc… are covered in great detail.

As Eric says in his classes, “learning React is only hard because it’s new to the student not because it’s actually hard”. Learn React the right way, and take the mystery and hardness out of coding React applications today.

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
