Are you a developer and a beginner at React? Do you want to learn React.js fundamentals in a real world project oriented course? Do you like quick learning and straight down to the point? Then this is the course for you!
Guaranteed no “foo” and “bar” … and no “to-do-list” app 😉
There’s many great React.js courses out there but they’re very huge and A LOT to grasp for beginners. My teaching style and belief is that you learn more by creating many smaller projects than one overwhelming 25 + hours course that tries to show you everything and don’t focus on the fundamentals that much. So this is a 3 hour(ish) course where You’ll learn how to create a Movie App from scratch based on The Movie DB API.
Some reviews are saying:
“One of the best project oriented courses on Udemy very recommended”
“The instructor was very creative in figuring out a nice illustrative use case for the Movie DB API.”
“A perfect course and a great project with the best explanation possible, I recommend it to everyone that wants to understand the logic of React and how it works.”
What will we do in the course?
We’ll build a light version of an IMDB style React DB Web Application and dive straight into creating our app and gradually learn more until we reach the finish.
My main goal with this course is to mix fun with teaching. There’s many tutorials and courses out there that are great but too complex and focus on a lot at the same time. I’m a great movie lover myself so therefore I thought it would be fun to create a web application based on movie data for this course. Hope you enjoy it too!
