Introduction to React.js and Redux Training

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.

What people say about our training

The instructor made it easy to learn some new things that Advanced PowerPoint 2010 offers. The instructor heard what my needs were and was able to address them and improve on them. I would do more web based training with Webucator.

Excellent class. With the instructor's constant attention to student questions, you easily forget you are in an online training environment. It felt like a classroom to me.
Julie Kennedy
Great materials to walk away with and the instructor was extremely flexible and considerate of my time.

The goal was to improve my current SQL skills and apply them in PL/SQL to comprehend and execute PL/SQL code, and I feel that was met and surpassed in these 4 days.
