Free, no. But Udemy has some superb React bootcamps. Colt Steele's React Bootcamp is what got me most of the way to the level I'm at now, and React is what I do at my job.

When they have a sale on (which is practically every other day), the courses are about £10, incredible value for what you get.

Also a udemy class but Colt Steele’s React class is good as well. He also has some JavaScript classes. His Web Developer Bootcamp covers JavaScript basics but also covers modern HTML/CSS. Link

You asked in another comment if you should learn JavaScript as well and I think the answer is yes. In my opinion, if you try to learn JavaScript and React at the same time you introduce the potential to not know what is React and what is JavaScript. That could be a pain point later as you try to research or if you ever want to move to other frameworks.

I don't know why this wasn't recommended earlier but Colt Steele's Modern React Bootcamp, it teaches all the fundamentals of react, different patterns and internals etc. Colt Steele is the best online tutor I've seen thus far so I can guarantee you'll have a breeze following the course. There's multiple projects as well. Check out his youtube channel too, got some neat gems in there as well!

The only problem though is that this doesn't include Redux, I'd recommend WesBos' courses on Redux if you want to go that way. WesBos has some cool courses too, for example if you are trying to learn React without a proper JS background then checkout his ES6 JS course.

I'm still going through it but I love it so far. It's very easy to follow and the exercises/projects are very instructive.

He begins with classes instead of functional components/hooks -- because he thinks it's easier to learn classes and then functional/hooks then the other way around, I think. (And you should learn both because lots of React code still uses classes).
There are 38 sections of the course and a bonus section. It's heavily project-based. The Massive Color Project starts in section 24 and goes through section 31. He introduces Hooks in section 32.

Latest React

That's the latest react course on udemy. Don't be bamboozled by the "last updated on". Other react courses are legacy and they just update like a single text on it so it gets "updated".

Hi there, after watching the Chrome Developer sessions - I would like to learn React + NextJS, and Udemy currently has a Black Friday sale on in the UK. I was wondering if people who are experienced with React + NextJS could tell me if this course is a good one to go for:

I currently have knowledge of PHP and Javascript, but it seems like a million frameworks like React and Angular and others have all popped up while I have been busy with life stuff, and I feel a bit overwhelmed figuring out what technology to learn next. The end goal is to learn to create PWAs - and while with my current skillset and I can code backend stuff without a problem, making something look nice - is not something I am terribly good at.

Thank you very much for your help.

Check this out. It's a long course, but the instructor is persistent in making you learn something.

Happy hacking :)

Seems like pretty much everyone likes Colt Steele's classes (myself included):

I also really enjoy Stephen Grider's classes:

*Imp: I am not affiliated with Udemy or any of the instructors, I have just created this plan for my friend to get the first job


  • Its \~300 hours of content so it should take around 3-6 months, including practice
  • It covers web technologies, in depth JavaScript, Frontend framework like Reactjs & its ecosystem, backend tecnologies like Nodejs & its ecosystem, some other important tools & technologies, TypeScript, interview preparation & resume writing
  • It covers at least 4 major projects


  1. Introduction to Web Technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Nodejs, etc) (34 hours)


2)  In depth JavaScript (Your main programming language) (52 hours)


3) Advanced CSS (llayouts & animation) (28 hours)

4) Everything about - Reactjs & its ecosystem (Frontend Framework) (39 hours)


5) Everything about - Nodejs and MongoDB  & their ecosystem (Backend Technologies) (42 hours)


6)  Some other important stuff (Performance, Security, Testing, Other Tools & Technologies) (35 hours)


7) More in-trend programming language based on JavaScript - TypeScript (the current standard) (25 hours)


8) Interview Preparaion (Basic) (13 hours)


9) Interview Preparation (advanced + LeetCode) (22 hours)


10) Resume writing, LinkedIn, Job Searching, etc (7 hours)


\~ 300 hours of course content

let me know what you think


ps: This is shared in good faith, there is no affiliation links or I am not going to get a single penny if you take any of the courses :)

This is for those who are comfortable with learning on Udemy

I created a comprehensive all inclusive plan, so thought about sharing it to whom who can really benefit from it

Warning, long post.

No, there are more jobs for JavaScript so I suggest starting there. Learning multiple languages and changing in the beginning is the worst thing that you can do. You need to master one to become employable - to be proficient in a skill they say 1000-1200 hours of will get you there10,000 hours to master aka 4-5 years of full time work.

As for curriculum, I suggest following the freecodecamp curriculum, and supplement it with udemy courses.
Here are my recommendations assuming you have never written a line of code in your life. Below is essentially enough to get started as a full stack developer.
The Web Developer Bootcamp (start and complete after you finish responsive webdesign section on freecodecamp)
Will get you off the ground with the basics of HTML CSS and JS.

The Modern JavaScript Bootcamp (2019) (start in parallel with Javascript Algorithms And Data Structures section):
Will dive deeper into JavaScript - Be sure to do all the exercises on your own. It's important to learn how to search and solve problems on your own.

At this point, I suggest signing up for Codewars to practice solving coding challenges.

Begin Front End Libraries section on freecodecamp and work through until you complete react.

The Modern React Bootcamp (Hooks, Context, NextJS, Router) (Complete after you complete the react section on freecodecamp):
Will give you a strong introduction to react.

Complete the rest of the front end section

Complete React Developer in 2019 (w/ Redux, Hooks, GraphQL) (complete once front end section is completed)

Begin and complete the JSON and ajax under Data Visualization section on freecodecamp...unless you want, the other points are not too necessary here.


At this point you should be able to build something on your own with the help of google. Build a personal site, blog, or what ever else interest you. This is about 3 months in working 40 hours a week. I just started learning firebase (product from google), and its pretty simple to host react apps there so take a look at that service.

Also at this point, you can begin diving deeper into JavaScript itself (spend half of your time building your own projects, and half of your time continuing to learn. Be sure to implement new things that you learn into your programming.)

At this point, you should be 4-5 months in working full time. Keep making your own projects, begin to put a portfolio together. If you've made it this far, you are almost employable. Expand your knowledge of the command line, and if you're interested in full stack take a look at the microservices section and nodejs (good course for node: The Complete Node.js Developer Course (3rd Edition)
