Building user interfaces with React

Become a full stack developer by adding React to your portfolio of skills

Contains around 8.5 hours of video - equivalent to a 2.5 day live training course

  • React is a modern and widely used javascript framework for building user interfaces. Full stack developers need to be able to work with at least one of these frameworks, and React is simpler and easier to learn than some of the alternatives (such as Angular)
  • We'll be covering functional React components, routing, Redux and integrating with a Spring Boot back-end.
Some basic HTML, CSS and simple Javascript will be useful for this course.
