Learning React - Resources

26 Jun 2016

I’ve recently been getting into React, and this post is a list of the resources I found useful and insightful whilst learning this new technology.

Pete Hunt: React: Rethinking best practices

Pete Hunt describes how React is designed and the thoughts and ideas behind how it works, and the problems it solves compared to other libraries. A good place to start. From JSConf EU 2013, but still relevant.

Thinking in React

Step-by-step buide to building a simple component in React. Written by Pete Hunt as well.

React documentation

The official React documentation is a great up-to-date resource for learning the ins and outs of the library.

ES6 guide

A great free guide for ES6 describing all the exciting new features coming to JavaScript. You can safely use it today with a transpiler like BabelJS or the like.

That’s it!

For now… I will post more resources as I go deeper down the rabbit hole.
