Learn A Language Series: Intro to React

November 1, 2017 · 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This workshop provides an introduction to creating user interfaces in React programming. We’ll build a simple front-end application together and learn firsthand what problems React can solve most effectively. If you’ve heard a lot about React programming and wondered why it’s as popular as it is, this class will help you understand its strengths and whether it’s right for your next project. This workshop is designed for people with at least a basic knowledge of JavaScript and web development. You should be comfortable running a server locally on your machine and installing software from a package manager.


Quinn Stephens

Quinn Stephens is a mobile developer at Table XI and has spent the last several years
migrating to the React Native platform. He is a Chicago native and graduated
from Northwestern University.
