Have you been trying to learn React but find the resources are boring, confusing, or lacking in some other respect? Have you been looking for a clear, comprehensive, and compelling resource to show you the way?

Then you’ve landed on the right page.

Node University students who take part in this course will be gaining hands-down the most effective method to learn React. At the end of the course, you will feel empowered and able to use that confidence and knowledge to write awesome apps in React, Babel, and Webpack.

You will start by learning the basics of React. Fundamentals like how it is a JavaScript library developed to build reusable UI components that present changing data. You’ll then learn about the philosophy behind React, which will help you to approach new projects on the right foot. Finally, you’ll get hands-on with everything from forms, components, states, events, and eventually integration.

I’ll walk you through four projects and show you five demos, each of which you can complete at your own pace.

That’s the beauty of this course and other Node University courses; you can speed them up or slow them down to maximize your learning efficiency.

Frequently Asked Questions


What tier should I choose?
The Mastermind tier provides the best value but if you are serious about taking your career to a new level, consider investing into Expert Mentorship.
Is this only for Node? What about front-end tech like React? Angular?
Yes. This service will have (and maybe already has) front-end materials as well as courses on HTML, CSS, Computer Science and more! You can submit your requests to new content.
Is this a real accredited university? Will I get a diploma?
No. This is not a real brick and mortar university like Stanford or Harvard. Node.U is an online school and we don't issue diplomas at this time.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. That's the benefit of online courses—you learn at your OWN pace. You don't have to watch a lecture if it has already familiar to you material. Just skip it or play on 2x. You can rewind/replay other videos which you didn't quite grasp the first time. Try doing it in a live class!
How long do I have access to the course?
If this is a premium membership course, you will have access to it as long as you are member. If it's a free course, then you will have access as long as Node University is around. Check out our premium membership to support Node University and enroll into this course.

Will there be coding? What to expect?
Expect 50% lectures in the form of videos with slides and occasional face of an instructor. Other 50% is spent coding along or by yourself and reading reports, articles and other written material. The source code is on GitHub as well as the slides.
Do I get a certificate? A degree? A student visa to the USA?
Right now Node University does not issue certificates but might in the future. There are no degrees and Node University cannot sponsor anyone for a USA visa.
Is this a real accredited university?
No. Node University is a 100% online service focused on cutting-edge software engineering technologies. NodeU is not an accredited university but often time more convenient, affordable and effective than real traditional institutions.
