Intro to React

Oct 20, 2018 · Austin, United States of America

React is a popular front-end JavaScript framework. Companies like Facebook, Airbnb, Netflix, Paypal, and Dropbox use React to power their blazing-fast, high-traffic websites. React stands out because of its speed, flexibility, and ease of development.

This 2-day course will introduce you to React through hands-on exercises and give you the skills needed to integrate it into your own project.

[Please note that, although React and Redux are often discussed together, they are two separate libraries. React's state model will be covered in class. State management with Redux will not be covered in this class, although we may briefly discuss it at a high level if time permits.]

This 2-session React course runs over TWO days. Your payment covers attendance for both days.

Class 1: Saturday, October 20, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Class 2: Sunday, October 21, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

You should be fairly familiar with using JavaScript to manipulate the DOM. If you attended one of our previous Intro to JS classes, that would qualify as a great primer. If not, you should have similar experience from self study or another workshop.

Things that are helpful, but not required:
* familiarity with other JS frameworks/libraries (e.g. Angular, Ember, Backbone)
* familiarity with the terminal
* familiarity with ES6+ syntax (we will briefly review this syntax in class)

At this time, you will need to provide your own laptop-- PC or Mac-- to participate in the course. Please note: A netbook or tablet is NOT a substitute.

You will need to have Chrome or Firefox installed (Chrome preferred).

You will also need a text editor or IDE (integrated development environment) of your choice. Some suggestions:
* Atom (free)
* Sublime (free)
* VSCode (free)
* IntelliJ (community edition is free)

If you don't have any text editor or IDE already installed, we'd recommend starting out with either Atom or Sublime.

Please note that you must be 18 years or older to attend this class. We cannot provide instruction to anyone under 18 years of age.

Your payment of $80 guarantees your seat in the course. If something changes after registration and you cannot attend the course, your seat is yours to sell or give to someone else-- just let us know who!

If you'd like to attend but cannot afford the cost, please request a GDI scholarship: https://goo.gl/forms/bQ4HJR4BYIb4O1pv1

Payment will be refunded if the class is cancelled or rescheduled.

400 W 15th Street is the Moody Bank building at the corner of 15th and Guadalupe.

You can park in the garage just north of the building off Guadalupe. It's across the street from the Clay Pit and has a "Deloitte" sign. You'll need to take a ticket when you enter the GE garage, but you will receive a parking pass at the end of each day so you won't have pay.

The third floor of the parking garage connects to the building. From there, take an elevator to the tenth floor.

If you'd rather not use the garage, there is also ample street parking in the area and street parking is free on Sundays.

Lenna Schirf convinced herself she was a wizard when, at the age of 12, she wrote some funny looking words in a text editor and made her first website. She has worked in the Austin startup scene for the last 7 years. As a full stack developer, she has worked on everything from (among others) data processing with sprocs, app deployments in Chef, monitoring with icinga, micro services in Clojure, and rich web applications in React/Redux. She is currently focussing on front-end development at Spredfast.

Please let us know if there is something we can do to better accommodate you: https://goo.gl/forms/CSAO3rVBLAwzk62U2

All attendees must abide by our Code of Conduct (https://www.girldevelopit.com/code-of-conduct).

Thanks to our sponsor, GE!
