Zero to React with Hooks Minishop

An introduction to React to learn the critical concepts needed for building modern React applications using hooks

React is a JavaScript UI library that makes creating reusable components easy and efficient. It’s critical to understand the fundamentals of creating custom configurable components, fetching and maintaining state, and rendering UI based upon that state and component configurations.

Maybe your team is taking on a new React project and you want to get a handle on React development before your kick off the project. Or maybe you are just starting off your development career and want to learn React in order to increase your job opportunities. Or maybe you’ve been in the industry for a while, heard so much about React, and finally want to see what React is all about.

Whatever the case may be, you’ll leave the minishop with all the fundamentals you need to build your own modern apps with React using hooks.

What are “minishops”?

Minishops by Ben Ilegbodu are fully-remote workshops that last about 3 hours. They’re highly-focused, covering only the concepts you want to learn so that you can level up your skills and get on with the rest of your day. By keeping it short, you’re able to absorb and retain the information before fatigue sets in and other distractions get in your way.
