The React Bootcamp is catered to devs looking to upskill, but is it right for you?!

We’ve been teaching React since 2016 and in that time we’ve often been asked what makes the perfect ReactJS Academy student. We’ve been asked what base knowledge you need, especially. So today we’re going to answer a few FAQs to make sure you get the most out of React Bootcamp - and we’ll have some snippets from past students along the way!

What do ReactJS Academy students learn?

Just to recap what the React Bootcamp is, it’s a week-long intensive React training course. We introduce students to React and get them thinking in a React way. Then we mentor students rapidly, taking a deep dive into the React ecosystem to cover:

Obviously, this kind of React training and GraphQL course can be pretty intense. It isn’t for the faint-hearted, but we make sure classes are small enough so that students get the most out of their face-to-face React and GraphQL training.

To get the most out of the Bootcamp, you’ve got to be at the right stage in your career and at a certain level of experience.

How much experience do I need to learn React?

As I said above, the React Bootcamp is intense and rapid. We’re not here to introduce you to coding, we’re here to supplement your knowledge and introduce you to a new technology. So the students who get the most out of our React training course are experienced developers.

If you’re familiar with JavaScript but want to learn a new, efficient way to use it - and fast! - you’re ready for the React Bootcamp.

Although the course is intense, it’s worth it. One former student, Polina Stoyanova from, said she found the course "fantastic".

"It was really tiring, but it was all worth it. [...] Overall, it taught me many things I didn’t know that I didn’t know about React! So I would definitely recommend putting the time and effort in."

On another note, if you’re a manager the Bootcamp is perfect for levelling out your team. Our course will get your devs up to speed and enhance the knowledge of your best employees. Everyone will be on the same wavelength afterwards, and that team cohesion will pay dividends for you going forward. Find out more about how team training can level your team’s skills on our blog.

Who will get the most out of the React Bootcamp?

But it isn’t just about experience. The ideal RJSA student is passionate about their work and loves what they do. You’ll get the most out of our week-long training course if you engage with the material and are able to pick up new ideas quickly.

Similarly, the React training is great for helping you or your team progress in their career. You’ll diversify your skillset to futureproof your career.

That’s the opinion of Senior Software Developer, Davian Robinson anyway. After one of our London React Bootcamps, he said:

"Don’t be afraid - start right now. Book as quickly as possible because this is a very important skillset in the industry. That’s what I’d recommend - just go for it!"

Why should I learn React? Is it easy to adopt?

We’ll build on your baseline of experience to get you thinking in the React way. Throughout the week, you’ll always be coding. In every unit, you’ll work on a hands-on, practical mini-project so you can learn how to build in React. See the 'Introduction to Thinking In React' project on our Github - you can try for yourself right now!

After the React Bootcamp, you’ll have all the skills you need to implement React best practices and apply it to your companies use case. The great thing about React is that it’s adaptable - you can easily adopt in your organisation. So if you want to change how your organisation creates UIs for the better, the React Bootcamp is for you.

Jaron Schulz, a developer from Berlin, had this to say:

"I would say, if you are interested and have some basic knowledge about React and JavaScript, you should come to [ReactJS Academy] because it gives you high-quality knowledge in a short amount of time."

Why ReactJS Academy?

There are loads of reasons to choose RJSA - here’s just a few:

  • Rapid and thorough learning with expert coaches

  • Small face-to-face classes, roughly 1 for every 4 students
