Using Redux with React LiveLessons Video Training

Video description

5+ Hours of Video Instruction

Web applications of today are becoming increasingly more complex. Our apps commonly need to request data from various sources and handle rich user interactions, which can become difficult to keep track of as our apps scale. Luckily, if you are using the React framework, there are many ways to solve these problems.

React has emerged as the industry standard for JavaScript frameworks. With more than 3 million weekly downloads from the NPM package manager—and heavy usage by leading companies such as Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Twitter and so many more—React is a leading framework. Learn how to unlock the power of React with the Redux library to provide creative solutions and highly flexible web components.

In larger applications, many developers and teams lean on Flux-style architectures, such as those implemented by the Redux library, which have proven to be highly scalable and easily testable. Instructor Dave Lunny covers how you can develop successful web applications with these powerful technologies.


In this 5 hour LiveLesson, Dave Lunny provides a deep dive into the concepts behind Flux-based architectures like Redux, showing how to use unidirectional data patterns to help simplify your web applications. Lunny uses a mix of screen casting, slides, and personal narrative to cover modern development patterns, demonstrating how to solve state management issues that can arise—such as higher-order components, render props, and context.
