I took this course on Udemy a few years back. But don’t worry, it’s updated every x months when changes happen in React.

I'm about halfway through Andrew Mead's The Complete React Developer Course (w/ Hooks and Redux), and I highly recommend it.

I previously took Andrew Mead's Node.js course and really appreciate his teaching style. He does a good job of teaching the why, not just the how. Other React tutorials I've done taught React as if it were a new language. Great, but I want to know why React and works the way it does and is structured the way it is. Andrew does a good job with this.

No create-react-app in this tutorial. Instead, you slowly build out your own boilerplate from scratch with apps that progressively get bigger and more complex.

I will warn that there are a few errors in the course because of using newer versions of plugins or dependencies, but these are resolved in the Q&A. Just look out for them if you ever feel lost.

This course is working really well for me, turning on lightbulbs for concepts I couldn't grasp with other tutorials. Hope this brief testimony helps.

I'll be following this thread to see what other people recommend.

I’ve sent dozens of my junior devs to this course on React:

It is so good, breaks everything down in pieces and builds on core concepts from scratch. Just like you said, it doesn’t do it all in one giant project. It has become an on boarding requirement at my company because of how good it is. Highly recommend it.

I chose the Andrew Mead one but there's a few other good ones out there. Depends on your learning style. I didn't even come close to finishing it though. Did all the early sections - the later ones are really just for reference and I went back to them when I was stuck on something when I was building my app

Are you up for paid content? I got an awesome set of regularly updated video tutorials (these) on Udemy for $12 , Egghead has some great stuff that's somewhat free and I've heard good things about Frontend Masters. I wonder if Americans/Europeans just don't like producing free content for React.

You might check out blogs by Kent C Dodds too, he has some super comprehensive stuff that's free.

I went through this one by Andrew Mead and it was pretty insightful.

I'm sure each one of the top courses are well enough, they all depend on the instructor and your learning style.

I’m a full stack dev. Can’t do that. If I were you I’d try to follow a course that does it. Then examine the parts that trip you up.

I think it would be helpful if you shared what you already know and that could help decide the best path for you. I started learning React out of necessity as I was placed on a project at work that required me to work on the frontend. So I can share how I went about it.

My experience had primarily been on the backend with Python and Django. I understood HTML & CSS but I'd only dabbled in some Javascript and even my CSS knowledge only covered the basics. Since React is a Javascript framework, I started off by taking Javascript courses. There's a whole bunch of these but I used this one ( Once I felt pretty comfortable with JS, I started on this React course ( Because I was applying the learnings from these courses at work, things really stuck and I was able to pick it up pretty quickly. If you're not in a similar situation, I'd recommend just trying to build things on your own as that's really the best way for these concepts to stick. I would also highly recommend if you're looking for a deep in-depth course. This one's on the pricier side but if you can afford it, I'd say it's well worth it.

Once I felt like I had a solid grasp of things, I also invested some time in really learning CSS. For many devs, CSS is often an afterthought and they learn just enough to get by. But being a visual person, I found that a deep understanding of CSS is what let me actually bring my ideas to life. You could be an amazing React dev and build complex apps with all kinds of state management, but without solid CSS skills it could still look like shit. So I recommend learning CSS.

Once you've covered the above, you should be in a solid place as far as frontend goes. Just with this knowledge + easy deployment services like Netlify or Vercel you can build and deploy some really great stuff. But we haven't said anything about backend yet, and you need to cover that as well in order to be a fullstack dev.

Now what you need to know on the backend really depends on what you're trying to build and how deep you're trying to go. With the introduction of serverless architecture and functions, you can really get away with writing as little backend code as possible. But to at least cover your basics and know what's going on, I'd recommend reading up on databases, ORMs, and the MVC pattern. If you want to build your backend using Javascript, you should understand Node.JS. Because my roots are in Python I'm most familiar with Python + Django for my backend web framework needs, and you could definitely do the same.

Once you've covered all this, you should be able to build user-friendly websites for the web that can store, retrieve, and update data from a database. In other words, you'll be a fullstack developer! Now I've not built mobile apps myself but my friends who have tell me the jump from ReactJs to React Native is very straightforward. So once you've got a solid understanding of fullstack web development, I have no doubt you'll be able to make the jump to app development. You could potentially even start with app dev and jump to web but my gut sense is that there are for more and richer resources for learning web development than app, so it's best to start there.

Sorry for the long post but hope that helps!

I don't think you're alone here. There are many of us millennials who graduated college with a degree that just isn't very much sought after in the current job market and economy.

Knowing basic HTML, CSS and some Javascript is generally not enough to become a freelance web developer (yes even as a frontend web developer, you'll need to know about the latest frontend libraries like React, Vue, Angular etc)

Before you focus on what's next... I'd say look at what you'll want to be doing in the next 2-3 years. If you're looking at becoming better at a being a frontend web developer, considering learning React as it is a really good frontend library developed by Facebook.

If your goal is to dive deep, you could try and build a robust app, something like a grubhub for meal kit delivery that has both database, the backend as well as the front end, mixed together like most websites are?

At the end of the day, I think what you'll want to do is create as many projects as you can so that you can have a portfolio to show your prospective employers and say, hey I may not have this that degree but I have built something that is similar to what current startups have.

The docs are great but if you want a course I always recommend Andre Mead:

He has a preview of the course free on YouTube to see if you like it:

Unfortunately not that I have found. Probably better to develop an interest in one paradigm and pursue it outside of school. I would recommend learning front-end and back-end JavaScript development as its supported by nearly all browsers and Node.js is a thing, which is a back end runtime environment. So an entire app can be developed in JavaScript. Might wanna learn [React]( and [Node.js development]( HTML is fairly easy to pick up and relational databases like MySQL aren't widely used for web development, document-oriented databases like MongoDB are easier to interact with and widely used.

All this to say no web dev classes offered here and really no cutting edge modern development classes at all, which is disappointing and why you should learn outside of academia.

I'm still going through all these:

Other than that I've only used javascript in more scripting sense on wordpress sites, or pulling in data or formatting data, or creating simple interactive google maps.

No apps yet. I mainly learn on a per project basis. I have something i need to do, then i struggle and figure out how to, while also learning on the side.

1 points • IAmWhoISayImNot (react) - that's for front end (backend node, Andrew also has an awesome GraphQL course that I'd recommend once you're comfortable with development) (html and css) (coverts a lot of other technology and concepts that you should know)

Just buy them when they're on special. They're around $14 each. I'd start there and after you complete them all, you'll have a better understanding of what you would like to learn next and can make up your own mind.

Hope that helps!

Pursue your passion! what is most interesting to you about web dev? If you have any project ideas, try to build them out. In face, if you haven't yet created a few basic apps by yourself (like a diet tracker where you enter your food, etc type of stuff) I'd reccommend you try one or two of those to really consolidate what you've learned so far.

If you're ready to move on and take the web dev learning a step further, start looking at frameworks. You may be ready to just jump right into React if your fundamentals are strong enough (sounds like it). Give it a try, with a youtube tutorial or something free to start with.

Or, if frameworks aren't interesting to you, start to look at backend development - There are several ways to go here but essentially you'll want to decide between NodeJs and Django and a few other major backend laguages. Explore.

IF you're looking for course reccomendations the udemy ones are great and only 10 bucks. Sometimes it will say they're $100 - don't buy them then. They always inevitably go on sale for $9.99 at some point like clockwork once a month or so. Pounce when they're cheap.

- Almost anything with Andrew Mead is good. Here's his react, but he also has one for Node. He really explains everything well, and it a great teacher.

- I personally have gotten started in this react course that culminates in building a massive well integrated eCommerce site fully in React. It's pretty interesting so far, though the intro project has had 1 or 2 spots where I think the teaching could have been a bit more clear. Still, for 10 bucks it's great.

- Sephen Grider also has alot of courses, and people seem to really love his stuff also.

- Brad Traversy'sjavascript from the beginning course isn't about any frameworks but I think is a really well done course with tons of little projects. It's what I just finished this winter and I think has taught me fundamentals of JS well. If you get into some of these more complex courses and still feel unprepared, maybe going back to this one and doing some of the little projects in the "API projects" section would be a good refresher. As a side note, Brad has a LOT of other more advanced courses out there (MERN stack, React, LAMP stack, NodeJS, Django, etc), however I feel his teaching style on those complex topics is better for those who already have some background in the topics he's teaching.

Also I just noticed this projects course by Brad for all vanilla JS, if you're looking for just a collections of projects for your portfolio.

Anyway, so yeah I've been doing alot of Udemy courses and I think they're really great cause the videos are high quality and instruction is complete, while allowing you the flexibility to continue learning whenever you want.

Make sure not to pay full price, you should always get a discount.

You could look into learning like a framework like react:

Both those are pretty highly regarded. I know it's dated, but I've always loved Colt Steele's Bootcamp:

It can feel a little dated, but you'll learn a lot about making API's, working with Mongo, building a crud app. You could probably skip a bit of the HTML and CSS portions as well if you feel comfortable.

Aaah fuck, if only your comment was on Cyber Week, I would've saved a lot of money. I'd spent upwards of 80.87 United States Dollar for like 10~ courses and 4 of them are for Full-Stack Web Development (The Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steele, The Complete Web Developer in 2020: Zero to Mastery by Andrei Neagoie,The Complete 2020 Web Development Bootcamp by Angela Yu,The Complete Web Developer Course 2.0 by Rob Percival, Codestars by Rob Percival) because despite going through a Full-Stack Web Development program, I feel my front-end is kinda shitty.

At least I bought some which are specific for JavaScript since the bootcamp I go through just teaches the surface level and these courses would help me supplement my understanding for JavaScript (The New Modern Javascript Bootcamp (2020) by Colt Steele, Stephen Grider, The Complete JavaScript Course 2020: Build Real Projects! by Jonas Schmedtmann, The Modern JavaScript Bootcamp by Andrew Mead, The Complete React Developer Course (w/ Hooks and Redux) by Andrew Mead, The Complete Node.js Developer Course (3rd Edition) by Andrew Mead).

Angular is not a language, but a framework. React is similar, but is a package instead of a full fledged framework. Before you learn Angular or React or Vue, you need to learn Javascript (Typescript) and the basics of programming.

Once you have that down, it is easier to learn React, but I believe that Angular is a more robust system and it is certainly worth learning both. There are a number of Udemy courses for $10-$12 that can walk you through Angular or React introductions.

I like both Max Mosh

For React, I like Andrew Mead's course - especially for someone who doesn't have a good bases in Classes and other programming items that you really need to learn these systems well.

If you can, start a project and get a mentor.
