We couldn’t have said it much better ourselves, what John Mannes just wrote in TechCrunch:

That pretty much perfectly sums up why we’re so excited about launching our new React Nanodegree program today!

Mannes had some additional observations that were right on target as well:

That’s exactly what we’re trying to do, get you skilled up on the things that are going to make a real difference in your career. If you’re a developer, or aspiring to be one, adding React to your skillset is going to be a big career differentiator. Despite the fact that React hasn’t even been around that long, React developers are already the highest paid type of front-end developer, and demand for developers with React skills is growing faster than any other developer category.

It’s been a great launch morning so far, and we’re thrilled to see we’re not the only ones excited about this new opportunity to master React:

Hopefully their 83k followers will be excited too!

We’re certainly glad to note that our partners at React Training are feeling the energy today:

The experts at React Training regularly provide instruction to leading Fortune 500 companies, and they’re also the team behind React Router, which is the most popular 3rd-party library built on React. Learning React will enable you to seriously up your development game, and significantly enhance your earning potential. We knew we needed to partner with the best instructors out there to build this curriculum for our students. Fortunately, that’s exactly what we got!
