More than just Koans
For people who finished Koans, we prepared something to go continue: the React by example book. In this book, we explain how to create common widgets like password-strength meter or credit card input.
For the price of the ebook, you get:
- Over 140 pages of React content. From fast introduction to React to example Todo app;
- 11 practical real-world examples;
- Repositories with code for most of the examples;
It's an early version of the book. It means some wording in book may change and there will be more examples later. All updates for the book are free.
- React docs - it's a great source of in-depth information about React.
- Why keys are important in React - great reading explaining the reason for React's keys.
- Reactiflux. User group on Slack. You can meet a lot of people using React there. There's a channel for beginners
