Learning Redux

More Information
  • Understand why and how Redux works
  • Implement the basic elements of Redux
  • Use Redux in combination with React/Angular to develop a web application
  • Debug a Redux application
  • Interface with external APIs with Redux
  • Implement user authentication with Redux
  • Write tests for all elements of a Redux application
  • Implement simple and more advanced routing with Redux
  • Learn about server-side rendering with Redux and React
  • Create higher-order reducers for Redux
  • Extend the Redux store via middleware

The book starts with a short introduction to the principles and the ecosystem of Redux, then moves on to show how to implement the basic elements of Redux and put them together. Afterward, you are going to learn how to integrate Redux with other frameworks, such as React and Angular.

Along the way, you are going to develop a blog application. To practice developing growing applications with Redux, we are going to start from nothing and keep adding features to our application throughout the book. You are going to learn how to integrate and use Redux DevTools to debug applications, and access external APIs with Redux. You are also going to get acquainted with writing tests for all elements of a Redux application. Furthermore, we are going to cover important concepts in web development, such as routing, user authentication, and communication with a backend server

After explaining how to use Redux and how powerful its ecosystem can be, the book teaches you how to make your own abstractions on top of Redux, such as higher-order reducers and middleware.

By the end of the book, you are going to be able to develop and maintain Redux applications with ease. In addition to learning about Redux, you are going be familiar with its ecosystem, and learn a lot about JavaScript itself, including best practices and patterns.

  • Write applications that behave consistently, run in different environments (client, server and native), and are easy to test
  • Take your web apps to the next level by combining the power of Redux with other frameworks such as React and Angular
  • Uncover the best practices and hidden features of Redux to build applications that are powerful, consistent, and maintainable

Daniel Bugl

Daniel Bugl is a developer, product designer and entrepreneur, focusing on web technologies. He currently lives in Vienna, Austria. He got into programming via game development as early as the age of 6. Later, at the age of 10, he first learned about web technologies such as HTML, CSS, PHP, and JavaScript.

During high-school, he contributed to the Ubuntu project, specifically the Ubuntu Beginners Team, supporting beginners with Linux and helping them get started with the community. He mentored some people who are full Ubuntu members now. He was also part of the Ubuntu-Youth council and leading the Ubuntu Austria LoCo (Local Community). Furthermore, he developed open source software, voluntarily translated software, and supported people on askubuntu.

He also did an internship as a researcher at the Vienna University of Technology, which would later become the university he studies at. Later on, he did an internship at Jung von Matt, an advertisement agency, where he collected practical experience in web development by developing a management panel.

He is now studying Business Informatics and Information Systems at the Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien) and is in the process of writing his bachelor thesis. At the university, he sometimes works as a tutor, on the Program Construction (entry-level programming), Usability Engineering, and Interface and Interaction Design courses.

Now, he is a contributor to many open source projects (including Redux and his own library, redux-undo) and a member of the React community on the Redux team.

He also founded and still runs his own hardware/software startup TouchLay (touchlay), which helps other companies present their products and services. At his company, he constantly works with web technologies, especially React and Redux.
