@fbOpenSource: Happy to see another option for people who want to learn React!

React is a powerful JavaScript library ideal for building interactive, data-driven user interfaces, and it’s used by some of the most successful brands in the world, including Facebook, Netflix, Airbnb, and more.

The goal of this program is to equip you with the skills and experience you’ll need to become a professional React developer. We designed the curriculum in collaboration with the experts from React Training to ensure that graduates emerge well-prepared to take advantage of dramatically increasing demand for developers with React skills.

Demand for developers with React skills is outpacing all other related categories, and the expert team from React Training sets the standard for mastering the React ecosystem.

Michael has led engineering teams at companies such as Path and Twitter, and is the primary author of open source JavaScript libraries including mustache.js and React Router. He has a passion for building clean, well-designed systems.

Ryan has been creating websites since the early 90’s. He conceived React Router, which has become the most popular 3rd-party library built on React. He is passionate about web development and has years of teaching experience.

Tyler found his love for teaching at DevMountain, where he was lead instructor and curriculum engineer. He’s a Google Developer Expert and is entrenched in the React community organizing React Utah, and running React Newsletter.

Richard is a Course Developer with a passion for teaching. He has a degree in computer science, and first worked for a nonprofit doing everything from front-end web development, to backend programming, to database and server management.

In this Nanodegree program, you’ll learn how to build declarative user interfaces for the web with React, and for iOS and Android with React Native. You’ll also learn how to manage state more predictably in your applications with Redux.

By learning React’s component model, you’ll be able to write declarative, composable user interfaces to build production-ready apps.

When your app’s state becomes difficult to maintain, it’s time to add Redux! By learning Redux, you’ll manage complicated state to build enterprise-level apps.

You already use React to build your web apps. Now, using React Native, you’ll be able to develop React applications that run on both iOS and Android devices.

Use React Native features to build a “Polls” application for both iOS and Android.

Create a React application from scratch and utilize React components to manage the user interface. You’ll create a virtual bookcase to store your books and track what you’re reading. Using the provided Books API, you’ll search for books and add them to a bookshelf as a React component. Use React’s setState to build the functionality to move books from one shelf to another.

Leverage Redux’s strengths to build a “Would you Rather” application. You’ll build this dynamic application from scratch while combining the state management features of Redux with the declarative component model from React. When complete, you’ll be able to submit new questions, answer existing questions, and see the results.

Learning React can significantly improve your skills and career prospects as a front-end developer, and it’s one of the best career moves you can make right now. React developer job openings are up 160% year-over-year, and React developers are the highest paid developer category. Udacity has partnered with React Training (instructors for Fortune 500 companies, and the experts behind React Router) to bring you the perfect learning experience—world-class React instruction with the leading experts in the field, and the through code reviews, career support, and active community of mentors that you can expect from Udacity.
