In this lesson, we'll prototype a React application right in your browser using CodeSandbox.io, then download that application locally and use the react-scripts, which are set up automatically to develop and build the application for production. We'll wrap up by deploying the application to Netlify (using a free account) for the world to see.

I used Vanilla JavaScript for four years. I thought I was an good intermediate developer. This course start out fine for me comparing vanilla JS to React. After a few lessons, I realized I was simply watching the videos and running the code.

I don't believe I've walked away with a beginning level for React that I could go out and code on on my own. Any advice? Is there a very low level course on React somewhere?

Hi Mel,

This course should expose you to the beginnings of what's possible in React and then serve as a reference as you go out and start building things yourself. I would recommend that you try to build an app yourself. Even something simple. As you bump into things you can come back to the course for review. The best way to learn React is to build things that interest you with it and then write down (and even teach) the things you're learning as you go.

Avoid jumping too far into the deep end. See how far you can get with just react and no dependencies. You'll be surprised what you can accomplish. Good luck!

Seems like this course is 2 years old. Is it still up to date ?
