During this course section, we will learn how to build a basic React application that uses local and shared state. Over the course of the section, we will create an application that acts as an Epicodus ticketing system that students can use to request help for programming bugs. We'll call this app Help Queue and it will have full CRUD functionality including the ability to update and delete tickets.
In later course sections, we'll also use the Help Queue app to learn and implement other programming tools like Redux, Firebase, and React hooks.
Even though we will learn full CRUD in this section, you will only be expected to add CREATE, READ, and UPDATE functionality for the independent project.
Note that we will be adding full CRUD functionality because knowing how to create, read, update and delete with any language and framework is a useful skill. However, React isn't opinionated, unlike both Rails and .NET, which have a set way of doing things. That means there are many ways to structure an application that has CRUD functionality. How that application should be planned and structured depends on other aspects of the UI and the application.
In this course section, we will learn about:
At the end of this section, you will complete an independent project. Your code will be reviewed for the following objectives:
