Instructor: 00:00 In this course, we'll start from the very basics of React, and give you everything you need to know to start developing web applications with the hottest framework of the web. Every lesson is in a self-contained index.html file that we can make changes to in our editor and load up directly in our browser.
00:16 There's no black magic going on with build tools or things you have to install. This way, you won't be distracted by all of those things, and you can focus on learning React. I'll show you how to use those things at the end of the course.
00:28 The goal of this course is to help developers, both new and experienced with React, gain an understanding of the fundamental concepts in React and how React works. We're not going to jump straight into React and JSX. Instead, we start out with a blank index.html file, and we don't even use React at all.
01:18 Doing things this way will help the knowledge stay more firmly in your mind. You know what solutions to reach to you when you're faced with specific problems.
01:27 We'll cover the very basics of React and its common APIs all the way through state and the component lifecycle hooks, building and using forum elements, why React demands a key prop when you render in array of elements, and how to make HTTP requests with React. All the things you'll commonly face when making a real React application.
01:46 Then, we'll wrap up with a lesson on how to move from your index.html file to a more production-ready development environment with codesandbox.io and Create React App. Finally, how to deploy your amazing applications to an amazing service like nullify.
02:02 I hope you enjoyed this course and even more that you enjoy building awesome stuff with the knowledge it gives you.
