React is a really popular JavaScript framework. Like, really popular.

So?

Well, if you’re a front-end developer (or soon to be 😉), React is a great way to save time in wrangling code to make amazing, responsive user interfaces.

Think single-page applications (SPAs) with changing states, reusable components, and mobile apps – even across both iOS and Android!

Heck, we even use it!

So if you haven’t dipped your toe into the world of React, we think it’s time you took a look. Here’s some of our popular content:
