Hands-on projects included the React JS course syllabus

Learn about the React JS projects for beginners that you can start right away.

1. Hospital Management System

You will get hands-on training in developing a hospital management system, which is a single-page application where doctors and patients are available. Learners will use the JSON-server package of ReactJS to create the system. Doctors will be added as per their specialisation, and patients can book appointments for particular doctors. 

2. Online Banking Application

Another live project that you will be working on during the course is creating an online banking application that allows users to perform their day-to-day banking activities. This application will have new user registration, login, deposit, withdrawal, and fund transfer facilities.

What are the topics and concepts to learn in ReactJS?

1. Basics of ReactJS

Before you start creating React applications, you must know why you should use React and how to set up the React environment. If you are familiar with HTML and JavaScript, then learning React can be easier. However, if you are a beginner, don’t worry; our course will give you all the basic concepts of functions, objects, arrays, and anything you need to start with React JS. 

2. Components

Components in React are self-contained blocks of code that you can reuse multiple times to improve the user interface of web pages and applications. The user interface can be divided into multiple components, and you can work on them separately before merging them all and creating your final UI. 

React components are mainly divided into two parts: functional components (components made with JavaScript functions) and class components (components made with JavaScript classes). You must learn them all to make improving the UI of your webpage and applications simple. 

3. React Props

You must learn about React Props and prototypes that allow you to pass data between React components. Whenever you are enrolling for a React JS course, you will learn the specifics of props, passing and using props, and sending data to React components via props. 

Multiple components in React may require the same data, and to make that accessible, you will use props. They enable sharing the same data across multiple React components in a one-way data flow system (parent-to-child components).

4. JavaScript XML (JSX)

This is a JavaScript extension used in React that allows you to write HTML codes within JavaScript files. JSX converts HTML tags into React elements, which makes your code readable and intuitive when refining React applications’ UI components.

5. React State

State in React is a structure that you can update from time to time, and this is used to store data of a component. Any user action or event can change the status of the state and affect the components’ behaviour.

Learn how to manage and update component states so that building a dynamic UI becomes easy. 

6. React Lifecycle methods

Components in React go through multiple lifecycle phases like mounting, unmounting, and updating. A React component can stay in one stage at a time. It starts from the mounting stage and moves to the updating stage until it gets removed from the virtual DOM. Components then go to the unmounting stage and are finally removed from the DOM. 

The React lifecycle method allows you to run different codes at various stages of the components’ life. You must understand these lifecycle methods in React JS for better outcomes.

7. React Router

This is essential when you are developing single-page applications (SPAs) as it allows users to define and manage routes for seamless navigation between web pages without full-page reloads. 

React routers comprise multiple navigational components that allow you to create client-side routing in the React application. You need to learn how to set up a React router, create routes, navigate with React routers, nested routes, dynamic routing, and pass parameters to routes. 

8. React Hooks

With React Hooks, you can use state and other React features without the need to create a class. These are functions that allow function components to hook into React state and lifecycle elements. For example, before the introduction of hooks, you had to first convert the state into a class before adding it to a function component. 

But now you can accomplish it by using a Hook within the current function component. However, to implement them in real life, you need an in-depth understanding of React Hooks.

What is the React JS course duration?

The React JS course duration is usually 1 month. During this period, learners not only get an in-depth knowledge of React.js but also have hands-on training with multiple real-world projects under the mentorship of top industry professionals.

However, to grasp the React JS knowledge completely and become an expert, you need to continuously practice and implement your theoretical knowledge in real-life projects. Plus, you can upgrade your knowledge through free resources available on the internet, reading newsletters, and following experts’ posts on multiple platforms.
