React Mini Series 1 – What is React?

React is an amazing web technology that I use daily. It’s paradigm of breaking your app up into components, keeping your HTML near your JavaScript, and using props and state to track data has been extremely helpful while developing small and large applications.

I have started creating a tutorial mini-series on React, with the goal being short, concise video tutorials covering ReactJS. These tutorials will be on Youtube, and will go over React fundamentals, just as what a component is, how the component lifecycle works, when to use shouldComponentUpdate, and writing composeable, reusable components.

Here is a link to the first video in the series.
