About this video

Are you looking to leverage the capabilities of React to build interactive elements for a website? Making the process of learning the latest version of React practical, this course is the best for you.

The course starts with an introduction to React and explains the process of installing it on your system. Next, you will become familiar with React components, states, props, and router and then understanding how to use hooks and context. Moving along, you will go through the process of setting up MongoDB Atlas and Express Server and learn how to build a custom application programming interface (API) with JSON Web Token (JWT) authentication. Next, you will create a client-side setup and use React and Express for user registration and authentication. Finally, you will create a Contact API integration and deploy it to Heroku and get to grips with Redux with the help of an interesting project.

By the end of this course, you will be well-versed with modern React 16.8 and will have developed the skills to build a full-stack Mongo DB, Express, React, Node (MERN) application with a custom Express backend API.
