I really appreciated the description of the concepts. The delivery was impeccable! I would only request more coding assignments with higher complexity, but that just might be for the next section :D

Great course! Really gives you a good introduction and thorough understanding of the React basics. Many things make sense now, such as props, state, and useState

Honnestly this course is not beginner friendly at all, the way it's taught is very robotic i had to stop the videos so many times and look for better explanations on youtube and other ressources

i would not recommand it for beginner at all

there is huge jump in week 2 and 3, it feels like maybe one or even two extra weeks would be needed. Or maybe instead of writing those "reading" you should actually explain what it means. It feels rushed and done by a lazy bunch.

Absolutely zero challenge course. My 90-year-old gramma can easily do it. Labs are simple as 1-2-3, You can do it in 5 minutes or less. The final assignment is a joke, done in 10 minutes. Even on a junior React position questions and assignments are 5 -10 times harder. With fetching the data, working with JSON, REST, and so on. This course is only good for you if you know nothing about Web development and never heard about computers and web completely. Do not recommend it.

Wow! What a great React basics course from none other than the creator of React themselves, Meta. I really like how the course was structured. It covers all the basic concepts of React that I expected like components and JSX, state and props, which are explained in great detail.

However, I might suggest that the final project is to build a simple homepage just like the prior course.

Nicely done, Meta! Another 5 stars for you. Great work!

Very good course for someone who has used JavaScript in the past but never React. One could go out and create a very simple React web app after the course but it is best to continue into the next Advanced React course as there are a lot of topics not covered here. The objective of the course is more of giving you an understanding of the concepts and constructs in React rather than applying them in real life.

It was an amazing experience to have such a great course, I have tried learning react from many platforms but I couldn't enjoyed that, that was kind of borring experince for me, but This course really made me amazed, I don't know how I became this much efficent and hardworking, this is my first day in this platform and I have completed lectures of whole week in a day, still learning.

I really enjoyed taking this course. The concept of component based app, virtual DOM and its benefits is quite fascinating. In my view, it seems much easier to learn and use React than JavaScript. I'm not saying one should not be familiar with JS. But building a fully functional website with HTML, CSS, and JS takes more resources than accomplishing the same with React.

the use of hooks could have more explanations, but for a beginner course it does has a lot of topics to cover, If you jump into it be aware you need to have a javascript foundation, code is one thing, but understanding what is under the hood is the key to mastering React. side note it would be nice to see all of you all guys !!

Issues at times with the online Lab environment and the Guided 1st React App with Instructor walk through help but overall very informative, good practice and get to see responses by your peers. It would be fun to make it easier to contact the fellow students/peers in the course! Overall great course!

Good and fun course. Enjoyed working with the basic concepts and understanding my way around them. It wasn't difficult and the learning curve was more or less very smooth. So yeah definitely recommended for someone trying to understand React.
