Additional FAQs on React Certification and Training

React JS

React is a declarative, efficient, and flexible JavaScript library used in web development for building interactive UIs and web applications. It lets you compose complex UIs from small and isolated pieces of code called “components”.

A developer team at Facebook, led by Jordan Walke, developed React JS as a prototype in 2011. It was officially released by Facebook on May 29, 2013.

React JS was developed as a solution to the issues that engineers at Facebook were facing with code maintenance. The growing number of team-members and app-features had slowed them down as a company and over time, their app had become difficult to handle. They realized that they had the model right but needed to do something about the user experience, thus marking the birth of React.js.

Yes, the current iteration of Facebook is built using React, while the mobile app is built using React Native – a version of React specifically designed to display the iOS/Android native components.

React JS was officially released by Facebook on May 29, 2013.

React JS is not a programming language. It is a JavaScript library that has a unique approach to building user interfaces by breaking them into components.  Combining an understanding of markup and content into JavaScript, ReactJS renders dynamic views efficiently.

React JS is a library and is not strongly opinionated unlike a framework such as Angular. As a library, React can be incrementally brought into an existing website or application and allows ample flexibility without forcing you to learn special syntax that frameworks generally impose.

React JS is a frontend JavaScript library. It is used for client-side programming to build things that a user will see and interact with on screen. An experimental server side edition of React was recently demonstrated to solve performance issues arising from server side rendering of React applications for enabling better user experience and SEO.

React makes Document Object Model (DOM) faster by implementing a virtual DOM, structured like a tree, in JavaScript. So, every time React needs to read or write to the DOM, it will use the virtual version. The virtual DOM will then try to find the most efficient way to update the browser’s DOM.

Unlike browser DOM elements, React JS elements are plain objects that are cost-effective and easy to create. As JavaScript is very fast, the DOM tree in it speeds up React DOM to update the browser’s DOM and match the React elements.

No, React JS cannot be used for back-end. While it can make API calls (send requests to backend), which deals with the data, it cannot by itself deal with database or any data source. Hence, as of now React is only used by client side and not in the back-end.

The growing popularity of React JS can be attributed to its key features such as:

  • Virtual DOM
  • One-way Data Binding
  • JSX 
  • Components
  • Declarative Programming
  • Synthetic event system
  • Hooks

Here are the top reasons why React JS is so popular:

  • React is easy to learn as it leverages your knowledge of JavaScript rather than forcing you to learn a special syntax.
  • React allows developers to break down complex UI/UX development into simpler components.
  • The Props in React enables passing the custom data to a specific UI component thereby, filling a blank when rendering JSX components.
  • When using React, web developers can store all the content changes in a single location called State and simplify the process of sourcing details.
  • React uses Virtual DOM to make the UI react promptly and enhance the user experience.

As one of the most popular JavaScript UI libraries with over 160K stars on GitHub and several million downloads every month, React is indeed the need of the hour and the future. Over 94,000 pages are estimated to use ReactJS, and more than 1300 developers are actively using ReactJS for development.

React’s benefits of being advanced, robust, non-risky, user-friendly, and responsible far exceed any disadvantages. Today, React JS is in high demand across several industries and new plugins are designed to meet the increasing additional functionality.

There is no difference between React and ReactJS. Such a distinction exists in certain programming languages, for instance, Angular - AngularJS referred to v1.0, which was totally different from v2 and above versions. The versions of Angular from v2 were eventually renamed to Angular.

However, in the case of React, there is no such distinction. Both React and ReactJS allude to the same library.

React is the core library that implements a medium agnostic framework for building components and managing their state and data flow. To make React work with web pages, we use the ReactDOM library along with the core React library. Similarly, React Native allows us to repurpose our knowledge of React for building native mobile applications for both iOS and Android.

React JS is being used by top organizations like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Netflix, WhatsApp, Dropbox, Tesla, BBC, PayPal, and Uber, to name a few.

Using React JS you can carry-out frontend development of web and mobile applications such as Dashboards, Messaging App, Social Networks, eCommerce Website, Enterprise Web Apps, Cross-platform Mobile Apps, Single Page Application, Blogging Website, and Productivity App, to name a few.

Key advantages of React over other JS Frameworks:

  • Accelerates applications development process
  • Flexible and easier to maintain due to its modular structure
  • React’s virtual DOM means highly performant web applications and UIs
  • Deploying React is easy
  • Learning React is easier than other frameworks/libraries.
  • Used for development of web as well as mobile applications
  • SEO-friendly

The following UI component libraries are recommended to be used with React JS:

  1. Gestalt
  2. Rebass
  3. Fabric React
  4. Ant-design
  5. OnsenUI
  6. React bootstrap
  7. Semantic UI
  8. Blueprint
  9. Material UI
  10. React Virtualized
  11. React Spinner
  12. Grommet
  13. React Desktop

React JS is a frontend development tool used for building interactive user interfaces (UIs) for single-page applications as well as full blown JavaScript web applications.

We use React JS in project areas such as Messaging App, Dashboards, Cross-platform Mobile Apps, Social Networks, eCommerce Website, Single Page Application, Enterprise Web Apps, Blogging Website, and Productivity App, to name a few.

You can use React JS when:

  • You have a medium-to-high complexity application that requires complicated flows on the client-side.
  • You are planning to build an app that requires a reactive and performant UI.
  • You are developing a static website with dynamic content (e.g. a blog or a landing page).
  • You have a performant website or web application that is crucial to your business plan.
  • You need to find high-quality engineering talent quickly for the success of your project.

Learn React

Yes. React JS is easy to learn provided, you have a few other coding skills under your belt including knowledge of JavaScript programming language.

For sure! React is the one of the most popular JavaScript UI libraries in the world with over 160K stars on GitHub and several millions of download every month.

React Installation

Here are 4 popular ways to install React in the latest version of Windows/Mac/Linux:

  1. Directly adding the React JavaScript file into the web page
  2. Using create-react-app
  3. Using CodeSandbox
  4. With Codepen

The best way to setup a React application is by using the create-react-app utility:

Step 1: Install Node.js and verify installation

Step 2: From the terminal/command prompt execute npx create-react-app my-app where my-app is the name of your app

Step 3: Once installed, go into the folder created by the above utility and execute npm start

Directly visit the package.json file and see the React app version at dependencies: {} section

To remove a package from your node_modules directory, use the uninstall command. If the package is scoped, include the scope.

Step 1: Unscoped package: npm uninstall package_name

OR

Scoped package: npm uninstall @scope/package_name

Step 2: Remove a package from the dependencies in package.json, use the --save flag. If the package is scoped, include the scope.

Unscoped package: npm uninstall --save package_name

OR

Scoped package: npm uninstall --save @scope/package_name

To remove a package from your node_modules directory, use the uninstall command. If the package is scoped, include the scope.

Step 1: Unscoped package: npm uninstall package_name

OR

Scoped package: npm uninstall @scope/package_name

Step 2: Remove a package from the dependencies in package.json, use the --save flag. If the package is scoped, include the scope.

Unscoped package: npm uninstall --save package_name

OR

Scoped package: npm uninstall --save @scope/package_name

Redux and Flux

Redux is a popular JavaScript library used for managing the state of frontend applications. React Redux is the official React binding for Redux, it allows React components to read data from a Redux store and send commands to the store for data-updation.

Redux is a JavaScript library used for managing the state of frontend applications and exhibits flux like flow with a single store.

React Redux is used to bind React with Redux. It creates containers that listen to the store's state changes, prepares the props, and re-renders the presentational components.

The key benefits of using Redux are as follows:

  • Easily manages the state of the applications
  • Centralizes the state management of the application
  • Allows time-travel debugging
  • Sends complete error reports to a server
  • Flexible with all the UI layers
  • Has a large repository of UI add-ons 
  • Reduces this complexity
  • Provides global accessibility to help build applications that work frequently

Redux Saga is a redux middleware library designed to make handling of redux app side effects easy. It leverages an ES6 feature called Generators which allows us to write code that looks synchronous and is easier to test.

Flux is an application architecture that is used for building client-side web applications with React. It is useful when we work with dynamic data and need to effectively keep the data updated. It also reduces the runtime errors.

Flux is an application architecture that is used for building client-side web applications while Redux is a JavaScript library used for managing the state of frontend applications. Both Redux and Flux have distinct applications and comes with their own set of key features. As web developers, you will benefit from learning both Redux and Flux.

A boilerplate is a code template that can be cloned and reused for various project. React Boilerplate is a highly scalable, production-ready boilerplate that offers a virtual environment for developers to easily develop applications.

React DOM is a package that provides DOM specific methods and implements the Virtual DOM. It is used at the top level of a web app to efficiently manage DOM elements of the web page.

While React is a JavaScript library, designed for building interactive UIs, React-DOM is a library that binds React to the browser DOM.

React Training

React v16.0 has some major updates and changes to the core algorithm. Here is a brief introduction to the changes:

  • New Core Architecture - React 16 is built on Fiber, a new core architecture.
  • Fragments and Strings - Return a string or an array of elements from the component's render method.
  • Error handling - Through Error Boundary.
  • Portals - Allows rendering children in any DOM node regardless of their location.
  • Server-Side Rendering - Completely rewritten server render that supports streaming.
  • Reduces file size - Smaller than 15.6.1.

There are several benefits of getting trained on React. Here are the main benefits:

  • React is simpler to understand because of its well-defined lifecycle, component-based approach, and use of plain JavaScript.
  • Anyone with a basic knowledge of programming can understand React easily.
  • You can use React Native for creating mobile applications.
  • React uses an application architecture called Flux and one-day data binding to control the flow of data through one control point, dispatcher. This makes it easier to debug self-contained components.
  • Testing React applications is super easy.
  • Social media app - It should have features like the ability to post text and media files, a live feed, user authentication, and enabling other users to like or comment on the posts.
  • E-commerce app - It doesn’t have to be big. A smaller and more focused Ecommerce app will do the job. It must have a storefront, products, shopping cart, and a checkout process.
  • Entertainment app - Think of the media that interests you and build a simple platform where users can log in and save the content they like. You can also add other social elements such as likes, comments, and shares.

Here are some ways beginners can get started with React:

  • Learn React - Enrol in an online course or take help from the internet.
  • Try React - Try online platforms to get a taste of React. You can create a simple HTML page and use React to add some interactivity or you can create a complex React-powered app.
  • Stay informed - Follow the React blog for any updates. Anything important related to deprecation notices or release notes will be first posted here.

React is the one responsible for everything that is happening on the server-side. It mainly influences front-end development.

The main reason why React is faster is because of its virtual DOM that renders everything in JavaScript and changes the things that are changed in actual DOM. Another feature that makes React faster is the keys in Arrays through which React allows fast array changes in elements.

To choose the best React training institute, you need to look at their course structure. Also, be mindful of the hands-on assignments and supplements. Lastly, check the price. If it's out of your budget, move on to the next option.

Here are the top five companies using React:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Netflix
  • Tesla
