Building React Apps with TypeScript

by Mat Warger

TypeScript enables React applications to be developed with fewer bugs by catching them at compile-time instead of run-time. This course will teach you how to effectively use TypeScript to create robust web applications.

What you'll learn

Building complex modern web applications with React can be prone to errors. In this course, Building React Apps with TypeScript, you’ll learn to leverage TypeScript to develop React applications that provide type-checking at compile-time to help avoid run-time errors. First, you’ll explore how to get TypeScript working in an existing React application (and see how to start one from scratch). Next, you’ll discover how to declare both function and class components with help from TypeScript. Finally, you’ll learn how to use TypeScript types with React hooks. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of how to use TypeScript and React together to build modern React web applications in a type-safe way.
