About the Course: Building a Real-Life React App from the Ground Up

During this two-day long course, you will learn how to create a real-life React application from the ground up. On top of that, we will cover the principles behind React and learn how to design and structure complex front-end applications.

By the end of the training, you will be familiar with state management (Redux or MobX) and front-end routing, and you will be comfortable with bootstrapping, developing and scaling React applications.

This training is also available as an in-house, on-site opportunity.

In case you have any questions about the agenda or the on-site option, you can reach us at

This course is for you if

  • you want to improve your front-end skills,
  • you want to build application prototypes rapidly,
  • you want to create complex and maintainable websites.


  • Prior HTML and JavaScript knowledge is required.

  • Prior npm knowledge is nice to have as we will use it for package management and script execution.

  • No prior experience with React is required - we will cover everything you need to get started.

The exact location of the venue in will be announced later.
