In this course, you will be learn how to get your react app to load as quickly as possible to maximize user engagement—we need faster rendering speed and smaller network requests!

You’ll learn how to both split code into lazily loaded bundles AND server-side render your page.

This has not been possible until very recently—you had to choose either code-splitting or SSR. Sure you have Next.js which is awesome, but it’s a framework that you need to buy into. With react-universal-component you are getting a framework-less Next.js that is in your control!

The react-universal-component library does a great job making it as simple as can be, but there are still various specific configurations and practices that must be followed to get it working. So watch the videos to learn how it’s done!

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    The course was well put together, and fairly clear. The code on github had some issues as I think someone upgraded webpack without making sure the code would work but I can now see that a pull request was created to fix this.

    Would have given the course more if (a) explanation why react-router was not used in the demos and (b) the async redux example performed a http request. Is (a) because universal component does not play nice with react-router? I assume (b) is not particularly disimilar to the example in the 13th video but it would be nice to see this working before I invest time into getting it working myself.

    Another nice to have would be, assuming the framework is capable, having css modules working as this can be quite complex to setup in a react SSR application.

    Anyway I don't want to be too critical as I learned a lot from the course and I think this will really help me with the work I am currently embarking on.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Very good course. Great Content. My only comment is that i felt, most of the steps despite being clear missed the reasoning on why it has been done in such manner. Other than that... THUMBS UP!

    What did you like about this course and how will it help you?

    Awesome course!! I spent a week trying to get this all working by myself. Ending up having to learn how to write babel plugins and webpack plugins so that I had a better understanding of what was happening. Having this course beforehand would have saved me a lot of time.
