React.js is the most popular front-end JavaScript framework. Developers use JSX, a combination of HTML and JavaScript, to create views in a natural way. Developers can also create components for blocks that can be reused across their applications. This module introduces React and the core skills developers need to use this powerful framework.

The goal of React components is to create reusable blocks of code and UI. To support reusability, you can pass data into components through the use of properties. We will see how to add properties to a component, and work with complex data types such as arrays.

Applications typically involve data that will be changed by user interactions. These changes are often managed through some form of state and events. In this module, we explore the concepts of state and events. We also look at the tools React provides for management.
