Facebook built React in 2011 to support the growing number of features supported on their news feed. In 2012, the React library was decoupled from the Facebook site to support Facebook's purchase of Instagram. In 2013, React was open sourced and made available to be used by everyone and has become the leading JavaScript library in the world designed to help web developers create highly performant interactive user interfaces.

This path will take you from having a basic knowledge of modern JavaScript and HTML, to being a productive developer building web apps that provide a wide range of functionality to browser users. You will develop the skills necessary to make those apps run efficiently in the browser, be easy to maintain, as well as being secure and completely testable such that maintenance is easy, and with minimal costs.
