React FAQs

Who is React for?

This course is for anyone looking to use React to level up their JavaScript skill set and improve their workflows. If you’re a junior developer ready to add another skill to your resume, this in-demand library will make you a more valuable asset to any modern development team. If you’re already working with React and looking to master modern best practices, this course will dive into the advanced concepts you need to level up.

Do I need to know how to code before taking React?

You’ll need to have a working knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript before enrolling in this course. You do not need to have any existing React knowledge, but if you do, this course will solidify foundational concepts you already know so you can have a better understanding of the inner-workings of this library.

What if I don’t have a background in JavaScript, and just want to learn React?

Before diving into React, we recommend starting with Juno’s JavaScript course. React is a JavaScript library so it’s important to have a foundational understanding of JavaScript first. Once you have taken JavaScript you’ll be able to fully appreciate the benefits of using React and apply core JavaScript concepts in new and exciting ways.

Why would I take this course at Juno over another school offering similar curriculum?

Our React curriculum covers the most up-to-date content and industry standards around the topics covered in this course. In our course, you’ll also be introduced to two key concepts, React Hooks and Testing, that are not usually taught in typical React courses. Both of these advanced concepts will change the way you approach writing code, and are an in-demand, must-learn skill for anyone aspiring to be an expert React developer.

What if I have some experience with another framework such as Angular or Vue?

React is its own library with lots to learn, and experience with another framework will likely make it easier for you to grasp key concepts covered in this course. In the same way, the concepts covered in this course will also make it easier for you to continue your coding journey and can apply to all of the programming you do in the future.

What will be a tangible takeaway from the course?

At the end of this course, you will have built an impressive React application with its own test suite. This project will be an awesome portfolio piece to showcase your React skills, and a great representation of what you can do with these exciting new technologies. Your project will also showcase your understanding of concepts many React developers have likely not yet explored, and the great level of thought you put into considering the testing and real world use of the application.

Will this course cover Redux or other state management philosophies? Will it teach TypeScript?

Hooks are taught in Juno’s React course, so the useReducer hook, which was built with state management in mind, will be covered. This hook is being widely used as an alternative to Redux and other state management philosophies.

While TypeScript is gaining traction in the JavaScript developer community, it is not required to code with React so we will not cover it in this course. While TypeScript has great value in highly architected and tested JavaScript projects, vanilla JavaScript is a better option when learning React and testing concepts.
