React News and How to Start
You don’t have to learn redux, or webpack, or higher oder components. It’s all part of it but it is not, yet necessary. You can use github starter packages like this one. Once you overcome the learning curve you’ll pick it all up very quickly. I can definitely see why this part seems to be number one on a lot of blogs and online learning services. Facebook does a lot for the community!
I am a meteor developer and I appreciate the package community. With React I am starting to get into the analytics of those. React plugins have their own chat room on Slack.
What I wonder is, will there ever be an industry about components? I believe there are possible opportunity for Components in the future. Plugins and themes have made WordPress a professional choice for a lot of businesses. Speaking of which, WordPress will go the React route. They want to completely overhaul the frontend with React. So GraphQL and Relay will become a field of interest, too. Facebook is going to change the way we develop, everywhere.
Lets see what happens down the road!
