How To Start With React

Some time ago I prepared a presentation for the meetup (which I organize btw 😎) about React. In this post you can check my presentation I gave to around 30 people and get some basic understanding of the React and how to start with it.

What is this presentation about?

In the JavaScript world, a new framework is created almost every day (ok, almost every second day 😂), but can React be called a framework?

Can you compare it to, for example, Angular? Or maybe you've wondered what is this JSX or components and how does it all work together, but you do not know how to start?

In this presentation, I will try to answer all these questions.

I will explain what it is, how it works and how to use React together with Webpack.

Additionally, I briefly describe how to use React with the awesome Symfony Webpack Encore for asset management in Symfony world.
