QA Total Learning™ is our newest and most effective way to learn.
Combining the best of digital and live learning, with access to world-class industry experts, we focus on ensuring you can apply your learning to help you drive impactful results in your workplace. What's more, our digital platform gives you the tools to track your progress and manage your own learning.This course is for front-end developers who want to take their base development skills to the next level by transferring their web design and coding skills into developing UI-focused solutions through React, one of the industry’s most prevalent front-end tools.
In this Total Learning course, learners will have the best of both digital and live learning to develop fully functional, SPA-focused web applications, with a particular emphasis on design. This includes the Digital stage, which includes sample exam questions, quizzes, and a combination of video and written content.
Following this, the virtual two-day Live event focuses on a project domain that will be designed, coded, and tested through React and supporting technologies. Learners will individually create new features for this project whilst simultaneously building on their base knowledge of React’s key concepts.
Please note, the video demonstrations in this course use version 5.2 of React Router.
At the end of this course, the learner will be able to:
- identify, design, create, and test reusable ReactJS JSX components in a hierarchical structure that construct a user interface for a given purpose.
- utilise props, state, and standard ReactJS hooks to manage and consume data or user inputs within a ReactJS application.
- initiate and handle asynchronous calls to external APIs for data required, consumed, or provided by the application.
- implement a single-page application by defining a routing structure using components from the ‘react-router’ package.
- build, test, and deploy a ReactJS application through a CI/CD pipeline.
This Total Learning course consists of three key stages, all explained during a 1-hour virtual kick off session, which includes a Q&A session:
- Digital stage – up to 20 hours over a minimum of 4 weeks
- Live event – 2 days
