EXPANDED and UPDATED to include new sections on Next JS and Server-Side Rendering!
Welcome to the best online resource for learning React! Published in April 2019, this course is brand new and covers the latest in React.  This course follows the exact same React curriculum my in-person bootcamp students follow in San Francisco, where students have gone on to get jobs at places like Google, Apple, Pinterest, & Linkedin.  This is the most polished React course online, and it’s the only course that is based on REAL bootcamp curriculum that has been tried and tested in the classroom.
This course builds up concepts one at a time, cementing each new topic with an expertly designed exercise or project to test your knowledge. It includes a huge variety of beautiful exercises, projects, and games that we create together from scratch.  Sometimes we mix things up and give you a broken React app and ask you to fix it or optimize the code. Check out the promo video to see a couple of the course exercises. The course culminates in one huge capstone project, which is the largest project I’ve ever built for any of my online courses.  I’m really excited about it 🙂 
React is the most popular JS library around, and there’s never been a better time to learn it! Companies all over the world are turning to React to help manage their JavaScript chaos, including tech giants like Facebook, Airbnb, and Uber.  React is consistently voted the most loved and most wanted front-end framework by developers, and it’s clear why! React is a joy to use, and it makes writing maintainable and modular JavaScript code a breeze.
If you’re new to frameworks, React is the ideal first framework to learn. It’s easy enough to learn the basics, but it doesn’t teach you bad habits. Even if you’ve already enrolled in another React course, this course is worth your time for the exercises and projects alone!  This curriculum is the product of two years of development and iteration in the bootcamp classroom.   All the lectures, exercises, and projects have been tweaked and improved based on real student feedback. You won’t find anything else online as structured and polished as this course.
The highlights:
•Learn React, from the very basics up to advanced topics like Next JS, React Router, Higher Order Components and Hooks and the Context API.
•Build one massive capstone application, complete with drag & drop, animations, route transitions, complex form validations, and more.
•Learn the latest in React, including Hooks (my favorite part of React!).  We build a complete app using Hooks, including multiple custom hooks.
•Learn state management using the useContext and useReducer hooks, to mimic some of the functionality of Redux.
•You get tons of detailed handouts and cheatsheets that you can refer back to whenever you need to.   Think of this as a React textbook you can study at any point if you get tired of videos.
What you get:
•250+ videos
•Slick, interactive slide decks custom made for each section
•Detailed handouts and cheatsheets, the React “textbook”.
•Dozens of exercises, projects, and quizzes.
•One massive code-along project with nearly 20 different React components.

Developer and Bootcamp Instructor
Hi! I’m Colt. I’m a developer with a serious love for teaching. I’ve spent the last few years teaching people to program at 2 different immersive bootcamps where I’ve helped hundreds of people become web developers and change their lives. My graduates work at companies like Google, Salesforce, and Square.
Most recently, I led Galvanize’s SF’s 6 month immersive program as Lead Instructor and Curriculum Director. After graduating from my class, 94% of my students went on to receive full-time developer roles. I also worked at Udacity as a Senior Course Developer on the web development team where I got to reach thousands of students daily.
I’ve since focused my time on bringing my classroom teaching experience to an online environment. In 2016 I launched my Web Developer Bootcamp course, which has since gone on to become one of the best selling and top rated courses on Udemy. I was also voted Udemy’s Best New Instructor of 2016.
I’ve spent years figuring out the “formula” to teaching technical skills in a classroom environment, and I’m really excited to finally share my expertise with you. I can confidently say that my online courses are without a doubt the most comprehensive ones on the market.
Join me on this crazy adventure!
