A full day hands-on course including powerpoint presentations, written lessons, and a hands-on project.

In this course, we:

  • Learn React Fundamentals

  • Write clearer ReactJS with JSX

  • Drupal 8 set up for integration with external front end frameworks

  • Building a ReactJS app

  • Integrating the ReactJS app with Drupal 8

First, we'll modify an existing Drupal 8 website to prepare it for integration with a decoupled application. This portion of the training provides you with knowledge applicable to a variety of external frameworks: ReactJS, Vue, Angular, mobile apps, even Alexa and Google home.

Then, the fundamentals of ReactJS will be taught as we build and integrate a ReactJS app with our Drupal 8 website. It will both display data from and send (POST) data to our Drupal 8 website.

We don't want to lose many of the benefits that Drupal core and contrib provide us with, so we will only decouple select functionality using the React app we will build.

This class is designed for:

  • Intermediate to advanced web and Drupal developers looking to add ReactJS to their skillset.
  • To benefit from the course you must have a solid understanding of web development.
  • Prerequisite knowledge includes mid-senior level proficiency with either PHP or JavaScript.

What You'll Learn

JavaScript Frameworks have been taking the web by storm for years. ReactJS has become a clear frontrunner with its ability to implement fast, slick, interactive web components without excessive complexity.

Adding ReactJS to your skill set enables you to improve websites with app-like components that are better and faster than what Drupal could do on its own.
