Description

The basis of any good, modern Redux application is the ability to orchestrate asynchronous calls to outside APIs, while working with the mostly synchronous language of JavaScript.

In this course, Redux Saga, you'll learn the skills you need to vastly improve your Redux application performance and development time. Throughout the course, you'll be building a non-trivial shopping cart application, where users can add or remove cart items, see shipping and tax totals, and check out, all while keeping state synchronized with the server.

First, you'll delve into Redux Saga, its uses and origins, and how it fits in with other Redux middlewares.
Next, you'll explore nearly ever Redux Saga effect, each illustrated with an example.
Finally, you'll discover Redux Saga channels, testing, and other advanced topics.

By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to build a whole application using Redux Saga.

Course FAQ
Course FAQ
What is Redux Saga?

Redux-saga is a redux middleware library that lets you create asynchronous apps with ES6 Generators. It makes it easier to handle the side effects in your redux apps.

What are the main benefits of redux-saga?

Redux saga makes application side effects:

  • Easier to manage
  • More efficient to execute
  • Easy to test
  • Better at handling failures
What will I learn in this course?

You will learn the necessary knowledge to build a whole application using Redux Saga, including:

  • Sagas and asynchronous ES6
  • Redux Saga effects, channels, and testing
  • How to orchestrate asynchronous threads
  • How to handle Ajax requests
  • How to execute concurrent API requests
  • How to test Redux Saga applications
  • Much more
Are there any prerequisites for this course?

Before taking this course you should have a strong understanding of JavaScript, Redux, and React.

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to write better applications with fewer lines of code through Redux Saga. If you want to rapidly accelerate your career by learning in-demand skills, this course is for you.

Course Overview
Redux‑saga. Whether you are one of the nearly 10,000 coders who have started on GitHub or one who's just starting to learn about it, it's a library that can rapidly accelerate your web application development. What I love most about redux‑saga is how it directly saves me time when writing all sorts of everyday applications. Dealing with vendor endpoints, saving data to databases, and communicating with APIs are just a few of the ways you can use redux‑saga. In this course, I teach you how to do exactly that over seven modules with hours of explanation and over 100 visual aids. In my course, redux‑saga, I teach you the practical skills you need in order to master redux‑saga, both at work and at the home office. We'll learn about sagas and asynchronous ES6, then move on to redux‑saga effects, channels, and testing. Overall, I can't believe how much information I was able to pack into this short course. By the time you've completed watching this course, you'll know how to build a whole application using Redux and redux‑saga. In the demo application we'll be building, a non‑trivial and full‑featured shopping cart component that would feel at home on any e‑commerce giant's website, you'll learn to orchestrate asynchronous threads, handle AJAX requests with just one line of code, and execute numerous concurrent API requests all with plenty of instruction and my own detailed explanations. Are you still writing your JavaScript code using promises and callbacks? Still stuck on Redux Thunk? Don't be among those left behind. Instead, learn the new, better way, not just for building React and Redux applications, but for all of your asynchronous needs. If you're ready to write better applications with fewer lines of code and rapidly accelerate your career by learning the skills that are in demand today, then get ready to begin your own saga with redux‑saga. Start watching the first module now.
