Learn React from scratch

Language: English
All Levels

Course description

What's this course about? Learn React and Redux by coding examples. Learn all aspects of the most popular JavaScript framework today using simple but very powerful examples. For a long time, JavaScript has been the key element of the world wide web. Historically, it's been used for front end validations, dynamic menus, making some AJAX requests etc. But things have changed since the introduction of Single Page Applications (SPAs). The first major such framework was Angularjs (1.x) from Google, which eventually made way to the new Angular 2, which now is called just Angular. Angular is a very complete framework addressing each and every issue that an application needs. Developers at Facebook reased a completely different kind of framework called React (or ReactJS), which uses a combination of plain JavaScript and HTML elements (in XML syntax), called JSX. Unlike the Angular framework, this one simply addresses the View part of MVC. The main goal of a React application is to breakdown the entire web application into a bunch HTML-like elements called Components. A component defines the visual appearance of your UI, while converting the data it holds into user interface elements. Using these components, you can quickly develop amazing and powerful web apps. These components are completely reusable. This course will start from ground zero and explain what exactly React is and how you may use it (and for which kind of apps). Thereafter, we'll go all the way from basic to advanced. We'll not just scratch the surface but dive deeply into React as well as popular libraries like react-router and Redux. By the end of the course, you can build amazing React (single page) applications! Who's teaching you in this course? My name is Vinod Kumar Kayartaya, I'm a freelance web developer, consultant and a full time professional software trainer. Since I have an enormous experience in the I.T. teaching industry, I know exactly what a student is looking for when learning a new technology. This way, I would have answered your question, even before you ask them. For all of my courses, I start from the very basic installation of softwares and tools, and get you started with coding. NO advanced JavaScript knowledge is required, though you'll be able to move even quicker through the course if you know next-gen JavaScript features like ES6 Arrow functions. Whatever the necessary ES 6/7/8 features that we will be using in React applications, are covered before that. I hope you will take the first step and enroll yourself for this course. All the best! happy learning. Vinod.

After my graduation from Kuvempu University (Karnataka, India) with a University Rank in 1994, continued my studies in Computer Science with Aptech Computer Education for couple of Years. I got into teaching Computer Software in 1996, when I got a job as teaching faculty in Aptech Computer Eduction, where I was a student. That’s when came to know that teaching is not only a respectable job, but one can enjoy too. In 1999, I became the founder of a small computer training institute, Lotus Infodesk in Bangalore. Students mostly used to come to my institute for learning C, C++, VB, Oracle and Java. At the same time, I also got an opportunity to teach in a college for 11th and 12th year students, and had a wonderful time teaching them Pascal. Unfortunately, the recision hit year 2000-2001 badly hit my training institute, and I like many others had to shutdown the same. This brought not only a very tough one year, but also brought new opportunities in venturing into Software development and consulting. In the year 2003, a new door was opened for me – training software engineers in big software companies like Infosys, HP, Cap Gemini and few others. Since then I am enjoying my journey in this industry, finding few development opportunities on the way. Here are some of the clients (in alphabetical order) I worked with in the last 6 years: ABB, Accenture, Amadeus, Bosch, Brillio, CA, Cadestech, Cisco, Collabera, EBay, EFI India, EMC, Epsilon, Exillant, HCL, HP, HPE, Infosys, Manipal Global, Metric Stream, MicroFocus, Mindtree, Persistent, Philips, Publicis Sapient, QSI, Sasken, SLK, Sony, Thomson Reuters, Trianz, Unisys, and Yodlee. And the technologies I was fortunate enough to conduct classes on: Advanced DB Concepts, Advanced Java, Advanced JavaScript, Advanced MS-Office, Advanced Python, Ajax, Angular, Angularjs, Bootstrap, C++, Consultation, Design Patterns, DevOps, Docker, Dojo, Eclipse RCP, EJB 3, Excel, ExtJS, Fresher training, Hibernate, HTML 5 & CSS 3, Ionic 3, Java, Java 8 Features, Java Performance Tuning, Jeknins, JMeter, jQuery, JSF, JUnit, Karma, Kubernetes, MEAN stack, Micro services, Mongodb, MS Access, MySQL, Nhibernate, Node.js, OOAD/UML, Perl, PowerPoint, PowerShell scripting, Progressive Web Apps, Protractor, Python, Reactjs, REST Web Services, Rx Java, SOAP Web Services, SPAjs, Spring, Spring boot and Reactjs, SQL, SSIS, SSRS, Struts 2, Typescript, VBA, Web application development, WebGL, XML, and XSLT. In the mean while, I had a great opportunity to create e-learning content for Manipal Global on Java and JDBC, in 2015. This assignment consisted of 50 hours of learning material including face shot videos, screen recordings, quizzes, assignments, reading material and others. Somewhere in mid 2018, I started creating video courses, which published for free on my website (, which was like a helping content for my classroom students. In December 2018, I published my first course, and since then I have published a total of 14 courses till date.
