React is a powerful library that enables building views in a functional style. React does not attempt to be a full blown SPA framework; rather it does one thing, and one thing really well, which is, render data to a view. In this session, you will get an introduction to react " we will see how to write our own react components, how inter-component communication works in react with props and event handlers, and do a brief look at the component lifecycle. Along the way, we will see how react leverages immutability to make it easier to reason about your application, as well as a glance at some of the tooling that exists in the react ecosystem.
