Building an application with React typically involves several tools. Whether you configure these on your own or use a tool meant to save you from the configuration like Create React App, the tools are still there. When you come up against a situation where you need to start from scratch or make changes to a webpack or babel configuration, it helps to understand what each tool does, how they fit together, and how they are configured.

In this course, we’ll start from an empty directory and by the end, we will have configured a slim but powerful boilerplate project. Along the way, we’ll touch on each of the major tools and build up to the final setup to gain an understanding of each tool’s purpose and how they all work together to help you build and deliver an application.

    What did you like about this course?

    The way Andy explains concepts is clear and it has a good pace. I understood why we add some plugins / packages to an application configured with Webpack and I'm really happy that the Framework used was React since that what I use on a daily basis.

    For me, at this point in my career, this has been quite simply the best tutorial I have ever taken.

    Depth of content, the pace of the speaker, choice of examples, everything was just right for me, I can not thank you enough Andy!

    Thanks anyway :) Segun

    What did you like about this course?

    I always used create-react-app and never understood what happened under the hoods. Also in my work as everything were pre-configured , I couldn't get a chance to learn these. All the contents are organised and a single place where we can refer all . It would be very difficult to get these information scattered online . Power of Webpack explained very clearly and it was very easy to understand . Definitely recommend this course to everyone. Since the course is probably created at 2018, some minor things have changed after that . But they are easily fixable . Eager to learn for more wonderful courses from Andy :) . Will use my own configurations instead of create-react-app henceforth
