Welcome to React for beginners: a course for web developers to learn React.js even if you've never written any React.js in your life.
We'll learn about React syntax, importing from other others, components, splitting components into new files and importing them, extending components, component props and state, click events, and how to build in an API request when a button is clicked.
If that sounded advanced and scary, don't worry I'll teach you everything you need to know about React.js to get you up and running quickly.
Why learn React.js:
But more than that, React is a high demand skill. Lots of development companies, startups and big companies like Netflix use React — it's how they can create such amazing user interfaces like the Netflix movie catalog.
Who uses React.js:
Pretty much everybody is React these days. Whether it's a small part of a website that has complex logic, or an entire website like Netflix. Pretty much everybody and their dogs are writing React these days. And that's why it's important to learn.
