class vs className
In the video, Guil changes the instances of
className in the jsx so that his app looks the way he styled it in the browser. But on my computer I hadn't changed
className and my app looked the way it should. Any possible reason for this? When I changed
className it actually broke the layout

class for an HTML class would cause it to be misinterpreted as the start of a class statement. JSX instead uses
className to avoid that and if the file is properly run though the Babel's JSX compiler (which webpack should do for you automatically) there shouldn't be an issue.
