Software Engineer Nicole Bush will walk us through creating a basic React app.
What is React?
Why should I learn React?
There's a high probability that there's no web framework that took as little time as React JS to be a leading one in the front-end web development. Google Trends confirms that React is currently at the top. Part of this huge popularity comes from the fact that top corporations use it to solve user interface related issues. This credibility has drawn a lot of people to the framework. Both developers and entrepreneurs agree that React JS is the future of oriented framework, and it's very worth investing money and time to it.
Here are some of the biggest sites built with React:
Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Microsoft, Yahoo, Netflix, PayPal, IMDB, Uber, Wix, Atlassian, CloudFalare, Slack, Dropbox, Salesforce, Airbnb, Reddit, BBC
