Join Ryan Florence for two days of intense React training. You’ll cover all the techniques the most popular React libraries use to create performant, composable, reusable components. You’ll also get experience with the latest APIs, and a sneak peek at the new Suspense API, getting you ready for the next (async!) chapter of React.

Who Should Attend?

Intermediate React Developers: If you've been working with React in production for a while and are looking to level up, you stand to learn the most from this workshop. You’ll be more able to write declarative code and reusable components spanning across your project, team, or company.

Experienced React Developers: There's no better way to get caught up on Async React and what it means for your code-base. If you’re a seasoned React developer you’ll walk away with the vocabulary and tools to help teach and lead your team to be successful with React now and in the future. You’ll probably fill in a few small gaps in your understanding of React while getting a large boost to your ability to build accessible components.

Beginners: If all you’ve done is the official react tutorial you will still gain a lot from this workshop. Some of it may not sink in immediately but enough of it will that you'll be months ahead of where you would have been without it. There's a lot of one-on-one time in these workshops so Ryan can provide you with some extra help.

What to Expect

Bring your laptop because you’re going to be writing a lot of code. Each day follows a cycle: lecture, exercise, Q&A, break, repeat. Ryan will provide a ~30 minute live-coding lecture where he introduces a new concept by refactoring some code. Then he turns it over to you to work out an exercise applying the same concepts from the lecture into a different app. During the exercise, Ryan will wander around the room, giving you time for one-on-one questions and help with the exercise. Most exercises have some "extra-time" items to keep you practicing if you're faster than the rest of the group, and you’re encouraged to help those around you since the best way to learn is to teach! After that, Ryan live-codes a solution and then opens it up for group Q&A. You'll learn a lot, have some fun, and meet some great people, too.
