How to React

Want to be a react developer, but don’t know how to start?

There was a time when I as a backend developer quite often heard such fancy word as React, but didn’t have a clue what it means. The only thing I knew for sure, if you truly want to stay relevant as a developer, you have to keep learning.

  1. Check your timeline for learning React:
  2. Read the official documentation:
  3. Free lessons:
  4. Take step-by-step training course: (try CSSTRICKS code for discount)

  7. Learn how to build maintainable and performant user interfaces for your web applications using React:
  8. Browse other useful links and examples:
  9. Don’t stop learning 😉
