WPTavern: Free React Fundamentals Course Updated for React v15.5

WPTavern: Free React Fundamentals Course Updated for React v15.5

If you’re looking for ways to expand your ReactJS knowledge, the free React Fundamentals course from ReactTraining.com has been updated for the latest React v15.5 release. The 48-lesson course takes approximately 287 minutes to complete. It was designed for a wide range of professionals, including backend engineers new to JavaScript, Bootcamp graduates and front-end developers who want to expand their skill sets, and JavaScript developers coming from other frameworks.

In the React Fundamentals course students will get an introduction to the React ecosystem and will learn how to set up a React component with NPM, Babel, and Webpack. The course covers topics like dataflow with Props, building UIs with Pure Functions, nesting React components, Stateless Functional Components, React Router V4, and more. Complete beginners may struggle, so the course author recommends students enter with a basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. More than 57,000 students have taken React Fundamentals.

Last year’s State of JavaScript survey results showed React as the clear winner among front-end frameworks in terms of developer interest and satisfaction. Automattic is banking on the framework’s success and has used it to build Calypso and Jetpack’s admin interface. Matt Mullenweg said he believes “the future of a great wp-admin experience is JavaScript – probably React, talking to APIs, super fast, and maybe even working offline.”

React may end up being an important part of WordPress’ codebase in the future. If you want to explore the framework without making a major investment, a free online course is a good way to do that. In addition to React Training’s fundamentals course, Codeacademy has two free courses for learning React.js and Wes Bos has a free course to help students get started with React.js, Redux, and React Router.
