By now you almost certainly have heard of React and Redux: two libraries that took frontend development by storm. Many large companies like Netflix, Reddit, Facebook, Khan Academy, Airbnb, and more are shipping React. It’s become ingrained in the frontend development community.
In this workshop, we’ll go from knowing about using React to coding a whole app in it, start-to-finish. After we finish it, we’ll refactor to include Redux as part of the app, so you can see how to code an app without Redux and with Redux so you can make an informed decision if you want to include it. We’ll also talk about debugging techniques, best practices, and discuss other topics related to the React ecosystem. We’ll even do a bit of universal rendering at the end.
