Building React applications demands that you make expert decisions before you write the first line of code.

You're responsible for building a cohesive, maintainable code-base that will help your team succeed and build a React application that serves your customers' needs.

You're faced with hundreds of decisions.

If you don't choose correctly users will suffer.

Your team will suffer.

You'll be stuck with your early bad decisions for the next 5 years at a minimum.

React is the smart choice for most web development projects in 2023

React provides an "assembly-level" set of tools without a lot of guidance on how to turn those tools into an application that scales.

That's what makes React awesome.

But React's flexibility is a double-edged sword.

It's up to you and your team to decide how your application will be architected and maintained over time.

To make those decisions, you need expertise.

You need experience.

This is where the official React documentation cuts you short.

You are left piecing together components like a bucket of Lego spilled on the floor.

You need to build applications that scale.

✅ Well-tested.

✅ Well-architected.

You don't have time for trial and error.

You have to get it right.

One of the biggest challenges with learning React is the vast sea of low-grade internet learning content.

You're going to spend countless hours wading through out-of-date, low-effort, inconsistent, and often wrong blog posts, YouTube videos, and courses across the internet trying to understand how to build React applications that scale.

Books are out of date.

Articles are filled with bad advice.

Screencasts are old, stale, and too time-consuming to watch while not providing real practice.

Youtube channels are thinly veiled content-marketing schemes meant to harvest cash from your wallet without caring about you or your career. 😬

There has to be a better way.

What if you had a resource for you and your team that taught consistent fundamentals of React component development as well as a well defined, production-proven, enterprise-grade architecture for building applications that scale?

Wouldn't it be great to confidently develop React applications with a solid foundation?

Would you like to have a coherent strategy and remove the indecision that comes with building a new React application from scratch?

Who is Epic React created for?

This is intermediate/advanced material.

Epic React is not for novice developers.

We assume the following about your experience:

  • Strong understanding of modern JavaScript and, more generally, web development (HTML/CSS) - we won't spend time remediating the basics in this self-paced workshop collection.
  • Willingness to do the work actively — this isn't a passive course, and you won't be successful if you don't make an effort. It's very challenging.

Epic React is designed for web developers who want to create robust, high-quality, well-tested React applications that scale to meet users, teams, and project stakeholders' needs.

I was just about to start preparing the app we're working on for general availability, which includes solving a lot of performance issues. This workshop delivers knowledge that is applicable to the real world issues right away.

Ruslan Shtyk about React Performance workshop

This has been my favorite of the masterclass series. Especially compound components! I find I'm at a point in my career where I want to write better APIs for components both for others and for resilience.

I typically work on smaller apps, so since I don't get exposure to React performance tips and tricks, I found this extremely helpful. I appreciate how much effort you have put into the materials and schedule because this was the smoothest workshop I have EVER attended!

This workshop/video/bonanza is nothing like what egghead has on their normal website, honestly this feels like a React Bootcamp/Coding School on a more digestable platform and delivery

I bought the workshop bundle because I felt my knowledge of React was very lacking. At the time, I had worked with React for half a year and always had a lot of unanswered questions. I feel way more confident in my React abilities now. The workshops cover almost everything you need to know in React. Nowadays whenever I find myself unfamiliar with a concept in React, I just refer back to the notes and exercises. The other day, I was looking at some production level React code that I have never seen before and I did not feel overwhelmed at all.

I'm always looking to level up my skills and I wanted to get a stronger knowledge of React. Before Epic React, I was good at React. After, I feel like a superhero and have super powers with React. I've been able to solve some harder problems with simpler solutions. I'm working on an internal tool for the company I work for and I've been able to create some incredible advanced functionality with the added knowledge from Kent's course.

Hi, I'm Kent C. Dodds, and I will be your Epic React instructor

I'm a full-stack JavaScript engineer. In the past, I've worked at PayPal, where I helped build products shipped to millions of users all over the globe. I also represented PayPal on the TC39. In addition to my job as a React developer, I created and maintain the most popular library on the internet to test your React applications. I'm a Google Developer Expert, and I've been teaching on for six+ years.
