Intro to React

React.

You’ve probably heard of it.

It’s that view library created by Facebook.

Yeah, the one that the new WordPress block editor is built on.

Have you worked with it yet?



As developers, we shouldn’t necessarily run out and learn every new thing, but React is becoming an important part of WordPress development. Join in as we explore React from the ground up.

We’ll learn more about

  • what it is
  • how it works
  • when you might want to use it

We’ll explore the basic APIs and create a simple application.

We’ll learn about some of the key concepts and answer questions as we go.

2019 is a great time to learn React!
