The Only (Advanced) React Course You'll Ever Need

Go beyond the basics of React and master the JavaScript library that's taken the world of web development by storm.

“Full Stack” means...

You’ll learn how to build for both the front-end and back-end of modern websites and web applications – first with JavaScript then with TypeScript – so that you’re ready for whatever the next step in your career throws your way.

Course Overview

Here's exactly what to expect from us – and what we expect from you:

Course Overview

We've affectionately titled the course "The Only (Advanced) React Course You'll Ever Need" – because it's true, and because that's our vision. One purchase, buy it for life and access it forever. One Course to Rule Them All.

At Covalence, we've been teaching aspirational developers how to break into their first software development job since 2015.

Now, we're going one step further with our Advanced React course that combines all the hard-earned lessons we've learned from training novices into proficient junior developers with the expertise we've obtained from learning, teaching, and using React since it started going mainstream in 2018.

We built this course for:

  • Bootcamp grads that have skimmed the surface of React and can use it, but they don't feel like they really understand it.
  • Current developers or technical professionals that want to be guided and up-skilled in React, Redux, and other fundamental concepts and foundations.
  • The project manager that's curious about React – maybe even considering a career pivot – but mainly wants to work with their team more effectively.
  • College computer science/software dev grads that didn't actually learn relevant skills for today's workforce.

If that sounds like you, perfect. We've been expecting you. And, yes, these are the droids you're looking for.

If you're just now learning the in's and out's of web development, this isn't the course for you. You'll be better off starting with our Front End Fundamentals course created for beginners.

JavaScript, from front to back.

We focus on your fluency in JavaScript first, then introduce TypeScript, to make sure you have a solid foundation in one language.

Lectures. Labs. Repeat.

You’ll have several activities and labs to complete in order to prove your mastery of this material. It’s challenging but fun – get ready to work!

Foundations, not frameworks.

Modern web development changes daily. No one can keep up with everything, but we can build up your foundational knowledge base so you’re prepared for anything.

Novice? No matter.

We curate our curriculum with beginners in mind. Everything builds on top of previous topics, so you can go from module one to done.


Our instructors love teaching, and our students love our instructors. We’re in this for the long haul – all you gotta do is meet us halfway.

No mysteries here. This is exactly what you’ll learn in this course.

Getting Started


A quick refresher on React itself and dealing with APIs and routing. For students coming from our Full Stack course or other bootcamps, some of this may be a review, but it's a worthy refresher before we dive into the nitty gritty details later on in this course.

React Theory


It's a lot of fun to get going and coding some actual React apps to learn the fundamentals, but what is actually happening behind the scenes? What does React do? How does it decide how to do it? All that fancy JSX and ES6 we write, how does it end up in the browser correctly? The point of this "theory" module is to cover the fundamentals of those burning questions. To give you, the developer, a deeper understanding of what's happening when you write JSX, components, state, and trigger re-renders. This won't be an exhaustive deep dive of every single line of React code, but it is a good starting point in case you get asked in an interview how things actually work. A good craftsmen should know their tools!

Hooked on Hooks


The implementation of Hooks was the first major shift in how you thought about the flow of information within a React application, and it fundamentally changed the way you write components. This module is the ultimate guide to understanding – and using – the major hooks in the React library. useState, useEffect, useCallback, useFetch, refs and memos, and more... It's all here!

State Management


So you know a little bit about React now, but you keep seeing other technologies listed on job descriptions and web dev subreddits. What's the big deal with Redux? Redux Toolkit (RTK)? Jotai? (wtf?) Why not just use the Context API? If you find yourself asking the question, "How can I manage complex state scenarios and maintain performance in my React application?" This is the module for you.



Routing has always been one of the tricky bits of React. No more! Learn how to navigate with ease and build your very own Star Wars Wiki in the process. May the Force be with you.

Keepin' it Classy


For those edge cases where your project/company still uses class-based components in React, you'll need to know the differences, nuances, and how to adapt to that environment. This module covers all of that, and how you should think about building components and applications with a class-based component perspective.

React Essentials


Last but certainly not least, learn the minute details – the good-to-know, nice-to-haves, wish-someone-taught-me-sooner – of designing and developing React applications from scratch. If the rest of the course is a puzzle piece that reveals the Foundation of your React knowledge, this module is the glue that holds it all together.

Covalence was one of the best choices I've made for my career. The instruction was excellent, and I could tell they really care about their students. They also have a vibrant online community on Discord, where instructors, fellow students, and alumni can help each other solve problems and learn, or even just chat.

Owner/Game Developer @ RetroMMO
If you are determined to learn to code and not afraid to jump right in, Covalence is probably a great fit for you. I really enjoyed my time at Covalence and am optimistic about my coding career thanks to the skills I learned in the class.
Megan Solga
Front End Developer @ Collegis Education
Covalence has been an invaluable learning experience for me. I felt like I wasn’t simply being taught to be a developer, I was learning on my own how to be a developer.
Chris Smith
Full Stack Developer @ JWEB Development
Joining Covalence to learn how to code is one of the best decisions I've ever made. I was in retail/food service for 10+ years, and the way Covalence has their courses set up builds perfectly to teach you what you need to know. I would absolutely recommend Covalence to anyone interested in coding!
Eric Moran
Front End Developer @ StreetMetrics
I really enjoyed my time at Covalence. The videos were very well done, and the labs did a good job of assessing my knowledge of the material. I can’t say enough good things about the instructors.
Jennifer Farnish
Software Engineer @ Altec
Becoming a developer was something I had wanted to do for quite some time, but was unsure of how to get there. Luckily, a friend recommended Covalence to me and it sounded like the right option. I'm not sure I would have ever gotten to this point on my own and for that I am very grateful for Covalence.
Josh Holland
Software Engineer @ Shipt
Starting Covalence was something I was nervous about at first. I had no coding experience whatsoever before Covalence and was somewhat blindly jumping in. The pre-work had me hooked from the beginning. Once you have the confidence in yourself, and the team at Covalence behind your back, it is hard to not succeed.
