Udacity’s latest Nanodegree will teach React

  • In its quest to reduce persistent skills gaps, Udacity has been designing condensed courses to get students up to speed on trendy topics to improve employment outcomes.
  • As with its other Nanodegree programs, Udacity’s approach to teaching React involves external partners.
  • Following the framework of traditional React Training courses, students will be exposed to React fundamentals early on before learning Redux and React Native — tools offering additional control and new use cases.
  • “Udacity has the resources to do code reviews and offer mentors, we’re just the three of us,” Tyler McGinnis, partner at React Training, told me in an interview when asked about why he felt the partnership with Udacity was beneficial to students.
  • To this avail, Udacity’s CEO Vish Makhijani has been talking to state and local politicians to build out a physical presence — Udacity has been running a program in Reno, Nevada to reach new students in person.

Convert React.createClass to ES6 Class

Convert React.createClass to ES6 Class



#ReactJS #ES6 #JS

  • This video and article go over how to convert to ES6 classes.
  • When replacing there are 2 options:

    This post covers converting to ES6 classes – another one covers stateless functions.

  • The helpful folks at Facebook created a project called react-codemod which holds a suite of scripts for automatically transforming old-and-busted React code into the modern style.
  • Right now it contains 11 different scripts to transform all kinds of things, like changing to , converting to ES6 classes, and even sorting the methods in a component to match best practices.
  • You can see the full list in the repo but we’ll go over how to apply the createClass -> ES6 transform here.

As of React 15.5, createClass is deprecated. You’ll get warnings in the console if you’re using it in your code – and, when React 16 comes out, createClass will be removed entirely.

10 Famous Apps Using ReactJS Nowadays

10 Famous Apps Using ReactJS Nowadays #reactjs #react #js #javascript #development #apps

  • Interestingly, Facebook was the place where the ReactJS library was initially created, which is why it is obvious for the app to use it.
  • Facebook currently opened a beta of its completely rewritten ReactJS, called React Fiber.
  • Netflix has even published an official blog post explaining how the ReactJS library helps their startup speed, runtime performance, modularity and various other advantages.
  • As of recently, the all-new WhatsApp Web app has also been using React, just like the Facebook web experience mentioned above.
  • In the end, the reduced risk, ReactJS development efficiencies, improved effectiveness and numerous organizational benefits have all been reasons for the big names in apps to upgrade to ReactJS and exploit the amazing benefits offered by this script.

Major apps like Facebook, Instagram, Netflix are using ReactJS. Read more about great companies constantly improving their experience and adapting to ReactJS

Intro To React Javascript library for building user interfaces  #javascript #react #reactjs

  • SourceSites Using ReactFacebook, Instagram, Dropbox, NETFLIX, Airbnb, PayPal and More.Prerequisites to use react :Javascript basicsDeclaring variablesCreating and invoking functionsDOM the Document Object Model (basically how Javascript Talks to the Browser)ES2015Class syntaxArrow functionsspread operatorTo undstand some of the concepts under which React operates.React makes it painless to create interactive UIs.
  • Design simple views for each state in your application, and React will efficiently update and render just the right components when your data changes.
  • SourceI.e React is the V (View) in MVC that is used to render views like HTML pages dynamically based on some state, which is often in the form of data.
  • React then updates the generated views whenever the original state changes.Declarative views make your code more predictable and easier to debug.The virtual representation of views in memoryFor the browser’s case, we write HTML using JavaScript in React relying on the power of JavaScript to generate HTML that depends on some data, rather than enhancing HTML to make it work with that data.
  • SourceBuild encapsulated components that manage their own state, then compose them to make complex UIs.SourceSince component logic is written in JavaScript instead of templates, you can easily pass rich data through your app and keep state out of the DOM.Learn Once, Write AnywhereYou can develop new features in React without rewriting existing code.React can also render on the server using Node and power mobile apps using React Native.In order to write your first react components you have to be familiers with some of the features react offers like How to:Write React componentsRender data to the pageCommunicate components i.e pass data from one component to anther ?

React is declarative, efficient, and extremely flexible. What’s more, it works with the libraries and frameworks that you already know like jQuery’s UI plugin. React was built to solve one problem…

Understanding State and Props in React – Hacker Noon

Understanding State and Props in React @RuairidhWM  #JavaScript #Reactjs #WebDev

  • Understanding State and Props in ReactI’ve been playing around with React and Redux recently and thought I would start writing articles on concepts which I’ve had to wrap my head around.So unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past few years, you’ll know that React is an awesome front-end library developed by the good folks at Facebook to make life easier for developers.It’s different to Angular or other frameworks as it is purely front-end (though see the comments below for a great clarification on this).
  • With that said, it’s extremely powerful.One of the concepts I struggled to understand during my learning more about React was the interaction between State and Props.
  • If you’re at all familiar with React then you should know that props flow downwards from the parent component.There is also the case that you can have default props so that props are set even if a parent component doesn’t pass props down.This is why people refer to React as having uni-directional data flow.
  • What happens when a component receives data from someone other than the parent?
  • This is super cool because that means React takes care of the hard work and is blazingly fast.As a little example of state, here is a snippet from a search bar (worth checking out this course if you want to learn more about React)Class SearchBar extends Component { constructor(props) { super(props);this.state = { term: ” }; }render() { return ( div className=”search-bar” input value={this.state.term} onChange={event = / /div ); }onInputChange(term) { this.setState({term}); }}SUMMARYProps and State do similar things but are used in different ways.
