Hands on with React

Tuesday, March 14, 2017

Don’t point that thing at me.
- Chris Kemp

React is currently my favourite JavaScript framework, and I used it recently to create the Notts Dev Workshop website. It led me to the realisation that NottsJS really should be showcasing JavaScript based web development. (I know! Really?!)

Most people don’t get to try a new technology in their day-to-day job, so they do it in their spare time. These people then don’t get to apply what they’ve learnt to a real-world problem.

So that’s exactly what I you will be doing. My plan is to use slave labour to enable you to build our website.

I will be acting as your customer and will be signing off your final work, so expect me to try to give you a live example of what it means to use this technology in a real setting.

So please join us in building a real-world react website.
