Have you heard about how great React is and interested in seeing what all the fuss is about? Have you tried out React simply to be put off by how complicated it seems? This session will show you how to begin using the React framework without requiring a computer science degree. It'll introduce you to the basics such as: creating components using the JSX syntax (and why this is not a horrible violation of separation of concerns), how to fetch data, and how to implement routing and navigation. In other words, you'll leave this session knowing everything you need to know in order to go home and get started using it to build your own apps. Oh, and did I mention I'm going to do it all in TypeScript? If you've been meaning to learn React but it's just seemed too overwhelming, this session will show you how to get started with as little friction as possible.
