React is a popular, high-performance JavaScript library for building fast, composable user interfaces. The Redux library is a variant form of the Flux pattern, providing a state machine for managing the state of a React application in a single dispatcher store. This Introduction to React/Redux course teaches experienced JavaScript developers the skills they need to immediately implement React/Redux in their applications.

This class is intended for experienced JavaScript developers. Approximately 1-2 years of JavaScript experience should suffice. Students will use intermediate and advanced JavaScript concepts and features extensively and will be expected to come to understand these features during the course. Students without JavaScript experience should not take this course.
