This course provides a beginner’s introduction to the powerful and ever-more popular React.js JavaScript framework. It has been designed for anyone who is already familiar with HTML and JavaScript, and perhaps already using another JavaScript framework, but wanting to understand the basics of React.js. React.js is quite a significant departure from most other JavaScript frameworks and it can be tricky to “get it”. Key to “getting” React.js is understanding its key underlying concepts, so that’s what this short course will focus on, through a mixture of diagrams and the creation of a simple working application.

Author of EWD.js
My name is Rob Tweed. I’m a Director and co-founder of M/Gateway Developments Ltd, a UK company that, since 1996, has specialised in web and internet technologies, in particular in conjunction with the Caché and GT.M databases.
I’m the author of EWDjs, a Node.js-based framework for browser-based client/server applications. EWDjs is specifically designed for use with the Caché and GT.M technologies, but supports other NoSQL databases including MongoDB and can be used as a framework with any other database technology.
My IT career started at the Royal Marsden Hospital, the UK’s premier cancer hospital based in London and Surrey, where I headed up the application development team within their Computer Department.
I spent 4 years working in the Healthcare IT team at Touche Ross Management Consultants in London, during which time (and for several years after) I was a key member of the NHS-Wide Networking Project team, one of Europe’s largest-ever networking projects, managed by the NHS Management Executive.
After becoming an independent consultant in the mid-1990s, I have focused exclusively on web technologies, with a particular focus on their role in healthcare. I was the inspiration behindWebLink, a web gateway product that I and my fellow co-director Chris Munt created and sold toInterSystems, the vendor of Caché. I also developed InterSystems’ WebLink Developer framework, the pre-cursor to EWDjs, and have consulted with and supported many of InterSystems’ major customers around the world to help them build their web application projects. The largest of these customers is Quest Diagnostics in the USA who use both WebLink Developer and EWD (the immediate predecessor to EWDjs) to support their Care360 application: the world’s largest Caché-based, internet-facing web application. I provide support to Quest Diagnostics for both EWD and WebLink Developer.
Recent high-profile work includes my technical support and development of the JavaScript User Interface for Oroville Hospital’s winning entry in 2013 to the US Dept of Veteran’s Affairs Scheduling competition.
My technical expertise includes over 30 years’ experience in the Mumps, Caché and GT.M technologies in not only healthcare but also a wide range of market sectors including financial services, online publishing and retail. Other experience includes:
