Updates to our React content

Good news! We're updating our React curriculum with new lessons, projects, quizzes, and articles.

Why?

React is always changing! Since the original release of our React courses, new versions of React have been released, including features like Hooks.

We are adding new content to cover those features, as well as improving our existing content for a better learning experience. These improvements include combining our two existing courses, Learn React.js: Part I and Learn React.js: Part II, into a single offering: Learn React.

Applicable changes will also appear in the Create a Front-End App with React Skill Path.

When?

These changes will go live on Wednesday, September 30th.

How does this impact you?

If you've previously started or completed Learn React.js: Part I, you'll notice a lot of new content, including lessons, projects, and quizzes. The course will be renamed Learn React and include all of our new and updated React content.

If you've previously started or completed Learn React.js: Part II, you'll still have access to that content, but you'll notice that much of it has been copied over to the new Learn React course. We recommend you continue your learning there.

If you've started the Create a Front-End App with React Skill Path, you'll see minor changes to your existing lessons and quizzes, as well as an additional project on JSX.

If you've previously completed either course and/or the Skill Path, you'll keep your certificates and progress.

Even if you've completed these older lessons, we highly encourage you to take the new and improved versions.

What are the specific changes?

  • Learn React.js: Part I will be renamed Learn React
  • All of Learn React.js: Part II, which covered advanced React patterns, lifecycle methods, styles, PropTypes, function components, and React forms, will be copied over to the new Learn React course
  • A new unit on function components and Hooks will be added to Learn React
  • New quizzes and projects on JSX, lifecycle methods, and advanced React patterns will be added throughout
  • The PropTypes lesson will be updated to use the new prop-types module
  • New, informative animations will be added to the beginning of most lessons (example below)

Recap

We're updating our React content on September 30 so it explores topics in greater depth and provides more opportunities for learning and practice. All of the content will be available in the newly renamed Learn React course and updates will be carried over to the Create a Front-End App with React Skill Path. Any progress and certificates you have will be retained.


Get more practice, more projects, and more guidance.
