About this course

IMPORTANT: This advanced course has prerequisites.

An intermediate understanding of HTML, CSS and JavaScript are necessary for this course. If you have no coding experience, we suggest you first take our bootcamps One Month HTML and One Month JavaScript.


Advanced JavaScript: React is a series of video lessons and tutorials accompanied by live Slack interaction, that show students who have a basic JavaScript background how to build three real-world projects that you can add to your website. You will learn how to make your website more interactive and engaging using JavaScript & React.

React was created by Facebook. Think about your Facebook timeline: There are a lot of different components there with a lot going on: the timeline updates when there are new status updates, you can “like” or comment on a status update, you can get messages from Messenger, you can search for people, right?

For a long, long time, creating interactive experiences like this in JavaScript was doable but led to messy code that was difficult to maintain. A common term for this is "spaghetti code" because all the different parts of it intertwine like the pasta on a plate of spaghetti and meatballs.

React gives us a way to organize our code. Our views (i.e. components) are self-contained and, ideally, do just a single thing. This helps us work with other people because when they come look at our code it will be easier for them to understand it. And it makes our code more robust because giving each component just one role to do cuts down on the likelihood of nasty bugs being introduced.

You will learn React along with up to 50 other students. You'll be invited to a private, students-only Slack room where you'll be able to get feedback and troubleshoot with both instructors and other students. This course will include several hours of video tutorials which you'll retain access to for 12 months, giving you the ability to refer back to the videos when you're off and building on your own.  


Week 1 - Fundamentals of React.js

In week one, we’ll build a simple React app! We’ll read through a complete React project so that you can begin to answer questions like: When do I choose between JavaScript vs. React? Why do I even need React? And why is React quickly becoming the most popular JS framework on the Web?

Week 2 - Social Media Card

If you’re building the next Twitter, Instagram, or any social media site that has user profiles then React can help you build your user interface. In this week, we’ll use API data, to populate a user profile page.

Week 3 - Pomodoro Timer

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method used to break down work intervals: 25 minutes of deep work, followed by a 5 minute break. In this week, we’ll build an app to help us focus. The Pomodoro Timer we create will tell us when to work, and when to break.

Week 4 - Product Search

In the final week, you’ll build an app that searches through a list of products. This will be necessary for any app you create where you’d like to parse through lists of users, products, or any data set.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is a One Month Coding Bootcamp?

A. Our bootcamps are 100% online, so you can participate from anywhere in the world. You will be given access to course video lessons throughout the month, which is where you'll first learn the material. You'll also be interacting with your instructor and the other students in a Slack channel where you'll receive assignments, feedback, and have opportunities for collaboration.

Q. How much time will I need to commit?

A. Our bootcamps require around 2-3 hours per week. That time will be spent watching video lessons and completing homework that is given to you throughout the course.

Q. How is One Month different from other learning platforms?

We've learned from our past students that you're 78% more likely to complete a bootcamp successfully if you're working with other people. Our online bootcamps offer a premium level of interactivity with your instructor as well as other students so you'll never feel alone on your learning journey.

Q. Are One Month bootcamps worth my time and money?

A. If you want to take an intensive 8-10 week in-person course that costs thousands of dollars, then One Month isn't for you. But, if you're looking for a fast-paced intro to a computer programming language that is taught in a fun, fast and effective way at a fraction of the price and on your own schedule, you're in the right place.
