React.js Fundamentals and Advanced LiveLessons

Video Description

More Than Eight Hours of Video Training


Overview

ReactJS Fundamentals provides a conceptual understanding of React, an open-source JavaScript framework from Facebook, and gets you started with writing React code while utilizing advanced JavaScript and modern es6 features.


Advanced ReactJS looks at the libraries that make React a complete front-end solution for building applications. First, React router is covered, which is the de facto standard React routing solution. Next, the training looks at Flux, the original data management pattern for large React apps. Then, the training covers the fundamentals of Redux, an extremely popular data management library inspired by Flux. Finally, the video series discusses strategies and libraries that are useful for testing react applications.
