What it is all about?

Our Netguru College: Frontend React is a great opportunity to get to know the industry’s best practices and expand your knowledge.
What will you learn at the workshop?

During the online workshops you will build a Wikipedia Map from scratch - the React application for exploring Wikipedia articles, displayed on Google Maps. We would like to give you hands-on experience of building React web applications: from design in Figma, through creating tasks and user stories like in our everyday work. This is not yet another React course.You won’t create a simple to-do list. You will get your hands dirty with a real-world project.

After the workshops you will know:

  • How to use the Google Maps API to display a map and markers on it
  • How to use the Wikimedia API to pull articles and their details directly from Wikipedia
  • How to model API clients for extending and learning easily
  • How to deploy and host your application for free using Netlify
  • How to implement the Mediator Pattern and design business logic with no hassle
  • How to make your app beautiful with AntDesign and styled-components
  • How to set up environment variables safely in development and production
  • How to manage your application state with a breeze using react-sweet-state and immer

Don’t worry if you feel it’s too much for you (feeling overwhelmed?) - our experienced developers will guide you through the entire process, and you will be able ask questions on the dedicated Slack channel.

I’ve attended Netguru College for Project Managers. The biggest benefits for me were the ability to see how the big and sustainable software house functions on a daily basis, what best practices I can borrow and most importantly, I learned key values of Project Management at Netguru that allowed me to successfully pass the recruitment process a few months later. I highly recommend Netguru College for anyone who wants to learn best practices within the IT industry and especially for those who want to get a job in a top-tier IT company.
