React & Flux Course Description
Welcome to React and Flux Web Development for Beginners.
This course is designed for developers who know basic HTML and CSS but who want to take their skills to the next level by building data-driven web apps – the kind of apps that can be used for products or startups and the type of apps that can interact with servers.
The course is also for developers of any level who want to know and master React and Flux.
Why should you learn React js instead of Angular or Backbone or Ember or Meteor? One reason is because React is incredibly minimalistic. It focuses on reusable view components. Never have to copy and paste code again with React. Then take the Reflux design architecture and mix it with React js and you have a full-stack front-end solution that is very lightweight. Frameworks like Angular do a LOT of things, are very heavyweight, and have steep learning curves. Why use a framework that gives you stuff you don’t need in every project?
React was created by Facebook, designed incredibly well, and makes fantastic data-driven websites. React Flux is a powerful combination.
