Today, I’m both pleased and proud to offer my 7th course from Pluralsight and my first one on React. For 10 years now, I’ve been focused on Single Page JavaScript apps that work really well with back end servers.

I continue to believe that for anyone building enterprise quality apps, the Single Page App (also known as SPA’s), are the way to go.  If you really think about it, it makes total sense. Why is that? It’s because you can write your code in a natural way. You don’t have a ridiculous HTML DOM backend server interaction around your UI events that makes programming a nightmare. Your user click a button, an event is attached the button, JavaScript executes and everything is running in one place.

No crazy postback semantics to manage and program around like in php or other, in my opinion, convoluted programming paradigms.

So why Facebooks React? Because simply, it’s the best JavaScript Single Page App library out there. Personally, I know I’ll get some flack for this, I love JavaScript and especially the new features including things like lambda’s, spread operators, and promises.

Unlike other SPA’s, react fits like a glove to these new features and it just feels second nature to programming JavaScript.  The learning curve is super friendly, refactoring is easy and productivity for me is high.

My course, React and ASP.NET Core, is just over 3 hours and is can be viewed with a Pluralsight subscription, but if you don’t have Pluralsight account, check out the next few minutes where I’ve included a couple clips teaching how to access REST Services, a little bit of debugging with Redux and integrating with ASP.NET Core and the create-react-app templating system.

Of course, don’t forget, that I’m an independent consultant also, and if you need help with projects or custom videos for your company that better serve your needs then a generic training course, I can help with that to.  Reach out to me at my web site https://peterkellner.net and click on the contact page.
