Overview

React.js Fundamentals LiveLessons, Third Edition, covers vanilla React and presents a refresher on some advanced JavaScript topics and essential ES6 features. You first learn how to create a modern React toolchain. Next, the training covers the advanced JavaScript concepts that regularly pop up in React and the modern ES6 features you’ll need to write more idiomatic React code. Next, the training covers a conceptual understanding of React and takes an in-depth look at how React’s virtual DOM works. Starting in Lesson 6, you dive into writing React code using the original create class syntax and begin to look at the JSX. Next, you see how to rewrite your earlier code using modern es6 features. From there, you learn the remaining vanilla React topics, such as component lifecycle and state management. The training wraps up with a discussion of how you can tweak performance in React apps, use styling, and create functional components.

Lesson Descriptions

Lesson 1: Creating Your React ToolChain
The first lesson covers Webpack and Babel and shows you how to use them to create your React toolchain. You also learn how to leverage CreatReactApp to bootstrap your development.

Lesson 2: Understanding Advanced JavaScript Required for ReactJS
Lesson 2 covers advanced JavaScript topics that regularly come up in React such as context binding and functional programming.

Lesson 3: Utilizing ES6 in Your React Applications
Lesson 3 teaches you some modern ECMAScript 6 features in order to help you write more idiomatic code. The lesson also explores Async await.

Lesson 4: Understanding Basic React Concepts
Lesson 4 covers the basic concepts behind the React framework including component-based design and use of one-way data flow and rendering.

Lesson 5: Understanding the Virtual DOM
Lesson 5 is all about how React’s virtual DOM. The lesson takes an in-depth look at how it works, contrasting it with the actual DOM and exploring the diffing algorithm.

Lesson 6: Coding Your First React App with Traditional React
In Lesson 6 you start writing some react code using the original createCass syntax and begin to look at JSX and setting initial app state.

Lesson 7: React Fundamentals with New ES6 Syntax
In Lesson 7 you learn how to rewrite your earlier code using modern ES6 features. It also covers more React basics such as component lifecycle and state management.

Lesson 8: React Performance
Lesson 8 covers the topic of how to improve React app performance. It starts with improving child rendering performance by setting keys. It then moves on to implementing performance optimization by setting keys.

Lesson 9: Styling with React
Lesson 9 explores a number of different ways that React applications can be styled. This includes inline styles, external style sheets, manually configuring CSS modules, and implementing CSS modules with styled-jsx.

Lesson 10: React Functional Components
Lesson 10 explores another way to write React applications—functional components with hooks and effects.
