Developed by Facebook, React is one of the leading frameworks to build efficient web user interfaces. You use small manageable components to build large-scale, data-driven websites without page reloads.

In this book, we take you on a fun, hands-on and pragmatic journey to master React Hooks from a web development point of view. You'll start building React apps using functional components within minutes. Every section is written in a bite-sized manner and straight to the point as I don't want to waste your time (and most certainly mine) on the content you don't need. In the end, you will have what it takes to develop a real-life app.

This book will give you everything you need to learn and be effective with the latest features of React Hooks.

About the Reader

Basic familiarity with HTML, CSS, Javascript and object-oriented programming. No prior knowledge of React is required as we start from React basics. But if you have previous experience with React class-based components, you will progress through the material faster.
