React is one of the top programming languages in the world and continues to grow

From almost nowhere, React has become the most popular JavaScript framework in use today. First released in 2013, it currently accounts for over 475k websites, is used by 65% of all JavaScript developers, has over 130k GitHub stars, and was ranked most popular JavaScript library in the 2018 State Of JS survey; but to write using React, you will have to get up to speed in all the enormous changes to JavaScript since 2015 (ES6 and beyond). These changes are non-trivial and take some time to master. In addition, whatever your future projects will involve, you'll need to be comfortable with Webpack, npm and Babel to transpile, minify and bundle your code.

Who is this course for

Anyone wishing to learn more about React, Webpack, npm, Babel and the recent advances in JavaScript.

Purpose of the course

This course gives you a hands-on 3 days with the JavaScript language, covering all the new features introduced since 2015. We’ll then cover Webpack, npm and Babel, before moving on to learn React.

You will learn how to

  • Understand the fundamental features of ES6+, Webpack, npm, Babel and React.

  • We'll also cover all the new JavaScript syntax introduced since 2015.


Ideally, you'll already be comfortable with JavaScript 2009 (ES5). However, if you have experience in any modern language such as C#, Python, Java etc, you should be good to go.   

Benefits for you as an individual

In a recent survey of 60,000 jobs on, 78% required React (21% Angular and 0.8% Vue). React is definitely the library to learn!
