Course Overview

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

At Covalence, we've been teaching aspirational developers how to break into their first software development job for over six years.

Now, we're releasing our first-ever advanced 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 for four-plus years.

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, jump in – we'll be waiting for you on the other side!

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 or take the plunge with our comprehensive Full Stack curriculum where you'll learn everything you need to know to make the most of this more advanced course.

However, if you want to take advantage of the limited-time early bird pricing, you can buy it now to save for later. Whenever you purchase the course, you'll receive access to the course as-is, and you'll receive all future module updates as they're released, but you'll lock in the full course at its current price. It's a small thank you for supporting our small business and the instructor that created it!

Your Admissions Process

Leave your prior accolades at the door. All we care about is you.

one

Schedule a consult

Have questions? Can't believe what you're reading? Want to make sure we're the "real deal"? Understandable. Just schedule a call with us – we love meeting future students!

two

Start Catalyst Prep

We'll teach you whether you're a high school dropout or Summa Cum Laude valedictorian – you still have to purchase and complete our prep course before you can enroll.

three

Pick your start date

While you work through Catalyst Prep, we'll work through the finer details (instructor meet 'n' greet, paperwork, payment) so you're ready to roll on your start date.

“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.

Curriculum

This is exactly what you’ll learn in this course. Expand these details to see a breakdown of the curriculum and what you'll build in each module.

1. Getting Started
see more

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.

2. React Theory
see more

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!

3. Hooked on Hooks
see more

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!

4. State Management
see more

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.

8. Keepin' it Classy
see more

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.

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.

FAQs

You’ve got questions. We’ve got answers, even if they aren’t listed here. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, just reach out. We’re happy to help.

How much does this cost?

The Advanced React Course will cost $399 (when it is completely finished); it is currently available for $199. The price will increase with each module release. Click the "Enroll today" button at the top of this page to purchase it in Gravity.

How do I know if this is right for me?

This React course was designed and developed with developers in mind. To make the most of this course, you already need to have a fairly solid foundation in JavaScript-based web development. You may be a bootcamp or college grad that wants to take a deep-dive in React, or maybe you've been employed for a while, but you want to learn a new technology.

Will this help me get a job?

The Advanced React Course provides additional upskilling in a specific niche in web development – React development. If you're trying to make yourself a more nuanced React developer to make yourself more competitive, then yes, this course may help you get a job; however, we are teaching this content for the sake of teaching it to you, first and foremost. We do not treat this course as an immersive, career-changing program (yet).

How long will I have access to this course?

We’re big fans of the “buy it for life” principle. Technical, impactful education is our craft, and we're proud of it. You should have access to a course as long as we’re supporting it and you paid for it.

What's your refund policy?

If you aren’t happy with your standalone course purchase for any reason, just let us know within 30 days and we’ll give you a full refund. It’s that easy. All we ask is you provide some feedback so we can improve our services for future students. (Note: immersive programs have their own unique refund policies.)

Will I receive a certificate?

No. We only issue certificates to students that successfully pass the final assessment at the end of the Catalyst Full Stack Program.
