An easy but profound introduction to React with TypeScript, with a bias towards understanding the key concepts, and building a clear and sound mental model, to set you up properly for the exciting world of front-end development.
We’ll build a fun, simple yet representative web app to explore a few topics including:
-What makes client-side so different?
-State management and the usual solutions, and frameworks
-Vanilla React, the big idea, pros and cons
-Redux, the why, how, the mental model, pros and cons
-Guiding principles, best practices
-The trends, churns, and how to keep a clear head
This workshop is made for developers new to React, TypeScript or front-end, or those needing a refresher. Prior programming experience is necessary, but not specific to any language or framework.
