Web Development with React and Redux

Web Mobile JavaScript

Want to build performant maintainable web and mobile applications using modern JavaScript?

This course teaches you how to utilize the popular React/Redux stack and other useful tools to build web applications, focusing on how to approach problems in a functional and declarative style.

React introduces a new way of thinking when it comes to building user interfaces in JavaScript. With its declarative style it challenges established best practices. Together with Redux as the application state container you can start to leverage some of the powers of functional programming without any former experience in the field.

This course has a mix of about 50/50 theory and practice. We'll solve a lot of exercises, and also build a complete project from scratch, so that you'll have working knowledge of every part of your application.

Course Outline:

Part 1 (intro and fundamentals):

  • Functional JavaScript Intro & Why React?
