Why attend

Focus, no distractions

Focus away from distractions, accelerate your learning. One week to focus on just one thing, learning React. Like-minded people, experienced instructors, comprehensive curriculum, and an amazing place.

Learn by doing

Learn by doing, move fast and break things. We want you to code as much as possible, and make mistakes in a safe environment. You will practice everything we explain in our project-based hands-on training.


Our experienced instructors will do code reviews and they will give you individual feedback. Instructors will guide you to think of the best way to solve a problem.

Collaborative environment

You will work in teams and pairs. You will have to explain what you do and how, rather than just doing. Explaining is a great way to learn and consolidate new skills.


This course is designed for professional developers who want to change their technology stack and learn modern front-end technologies. We recommend you to have at least 1 year of professional experience as a developer to attend this course. Please read our FAQs or contact us if you have any questions.

Learn to code

This course is not designed for people who want to learn to code. If you want to learn to code we recommend you to contact our partner in London Makers. You'll get £250 discount using the reference ReactJS Academy.


  • Why should I learn React?

    React leverages all the power of JavaScript, specially the modern ES6 & ESNEXT JavaScript. This is great since developers don’t need to learn a specific way of doing of a specific framework but rather they learn patterns and principles that can be applied to other frameworks and even to other languages.

  • How much JavaScript do developers need to know to attend this training?

    To be a good React developer, developers must be good JavaScript developers. We recommend having some experience with modern ES6 JavaScript before attending any of our React training. That being said, we always start our training with an ES6 workshop to make sure you have a good JavaScript foundation to leverage React.

  • Do developers need to have some experience in other JavaScript frameworks to attend this training?

    React is a paradigm shift, it takes a Functional approach rather than Object Oriented. It is declarative instead of imperative. Most traditional frameworks don't operate in these new paradigms, therefore knowing other front-end frameworks is not an advantage.
