Note: This is recorded with an older version of React and many things have changed. The core concepts are still accurate, but there are some technical differences you’ll need to work through.

React is a "javascript library for building user interfaces" from the fine folks at Facebook & Instagram. It strictly focuses on the "V" in your MVC applications, and touts a blazing fast virtual DOM diff implementation.

This series will explore the basic fundamentals of React to get you started.

When you've finished with this series, be sure to check out React: Flux Architecture (ES6) for real-world React application development.

    What would make this collection a 7 for you?

    It would be a 7, but the contents are not the most up to date according with modern React.

    But it's pretty good if you are just getting into React and working on legacy code.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    The initial lessons are somewhat "impersonal", we jump straight into the code without a brief introduction of what we should expect from the course, what React is, etc. Being a complete beginner in React I would have loved a very brief overview of these. Coming from Angular, which is a complete framework and covers pretty much all of the MVC pattern, it wasn't clear to me that React is just a library that's only designed to solve the "V" part. I think mentioning that would've been nice.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Some syntax/methods have changed in the new react as per official docs. One example is the lifecycle methods. Also probably ref methods. So update the course accordingly. Else everything is very good.

    What would make this course a 7 for you?

    Explaining some context about what is happening under the hood, in react or in javacript will help to get more understanding of a lesson.
