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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
Let's talk about the importance of React and the prerequisites you will need to take this course.
A discussion of the purpose and popularity of React, and why it's so effective in rendering user interfaces.
This new tech has completely changed the way we build and serve websites.

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.
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.
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.
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.
