Prerequisite for learning React

I know front-end tech is a must but should I learn more in server-side javascript framework before starting in React?

I'd say that would be helpful. You'll likely be installing react via NPM so being familiar with Full Stack JS will stand you in good stead.

You'll also likely need a knowledge of working with Objects and methods. React Syntax is slightly different to regular JS. It uses pieces of code called components to build projects.
