Is the React course up to date? Is it worth doing it on team treehouse?

Hi everyone,

I have been told at work that I need to start learning reactjs and I was wondering if the react course on teamtreehouse was up to date or if anyone can recommend a better learning platform than teamtreehouse for it.

Thank you!

I agree with Miguel, your focus should be on es6 syntax and beyond now, even looking at statics under es8. Also check out Dan Abromovs tutorials on Redux to fill that gap, don't ignore Redux just because the new context API has come out, to implement the Flow philosophy it is a great resource.

No, the course is outdated. The instructor does not use ES6 syntax or classes. You should look at the React Documentation and read the guides and do the tutorial. If you want instructed learning, you might want to look at Tyler Mcginnis's React Fundamentals course. It's updated constantly. Good luck!
