Glitch is the friendly community where you’ll build the app of your dreams. We want to introduce you to different ways to build those apps. In this video series, we talk about React. Through 5 short videos we cover what React is, why you might use it an when. And we look at 3 remixable example apps that use React and explain the code that’s used in them.
To help us, we’ve enlisted the help of some engineers who use React every day in their jobs: Suz Hinton from Microsoft, Florida Ivanne Elago from Casper, and Justin Falcone from BuzzFeed. Hosted by Jenn Schiffer.
Part 1: Intro to React
Software Engineers who use React every day explain what React is, when you might use it and why.
Part 2: React Starter
We take a look at a simple app that uses React, and we introduce the tools and concepts you need to understand it, including Webpack, JSX, components, elements and props.
Part 3: React Router
We introduce you to routing, and explain how you can use React Router to add links to additional pages in your app.
Part 4: React Redux
We explain how to manage ‘state’ in your app, and how Actions work with Reducers.
Part 5: What’s Next?
We suggest some useful add-ons and libraries to try out once you’ve mastered the basics.
