This course will teach you how to create a fully-featured to-do app from scratch, connected to a local database using ReactJS. You’ll also learn how to deploy it online, so that you can both use it, and easily show it on your resume or personal website as part of your portfolio. You will be shown how to install React Developer Tools and Node.js, understand how React differs from jQuery and Angular, and learn to transform your HTML code to React Code in order to create a fully configured React app in five minutes without using NPM.
Throughout the course, you will master:
- Improving your App’s aesthetics with a 3rd party UI library
- Storing your To-dos with component state
- Updating states based on user interaction
- Reducing the complexity of your app with component props
- Extracting data from input elements with the React event
- Use JSON Server to create a fake database to store data
- Use lifecycle methods to perform certain tasks at different stages of the React component’s life
- Learn about GET, POST and DELETE requests
- Understand the basics of Heroku and how to deploy your app to it with only a few lines of code
- Use a reverse proxy to make development and deployment simpler

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.
With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.
I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
