What is React?

React is used on thousands of web sites (Facebook, Netflix, Instagram, NY Times) and mobile apps (Skype, Uber, Tesla). It is a JavaScript library originally built by Facebook. It allows developers to create large web apps using data that can change without reloading the page. It provides speed, simplicity, and scalability.

Who is the Workshop For?

You should have experience in building web applications with HTML5 and JavaScript. No previous experience with React library is required.
