    Im not seeing enough to make me want to shell out $40. I'm interested but all I get is a vague description about what I will learn.

      Thanks for the feedback Stan. I’ll try to add more content in the future. Any questions in particular you wanted answered?

        Yes, I'd love to know what the outcome of this course would be for me? What exactly will I learn and to what extent? Also as others have mentioned what should I already know? Basic JavaScript? HTML? Redux?

          Hi Stan, I added a FAQ section with answers to at least one of your questions. The lessons titles cover the concepts taught in the course. Hope that clears things up some. if there's anything else I can do to make it clearer let me know.

          Thanks again for your feedback!

      Yeah. There are TONS of great React courses already out there. Here's another designer-focused one by the guy who did the great iOS app course Design+Code. Good track record: https://designcode.io/react-for-designers

          Not sure. I don't see those since I'm usually logged in. They're pretty responsive, so I'm sure you can toss them an email if you have any questions on it.

      maybe take the free lesson and then decide? it's a class, not a video game.

        And here I am thinking our jobs as designers is to communicate things clearly so that people don't have to waste their time figuring something out... Ah well.

      For me it was the fact that the first lesson is "Building a Simple Component".

      I am all up for getting up and running quickly, but skimming over the foundations of what react does vs javascript etc will probably backfire once you try to make something a little more complex.

    Looking great Phillip! The only thing stopping me from Signing Up is some sort of help understanding what I might need to know already? Do I need js experience? HTML, CSS? etc

    A FAQ or a couple of notes about this would probably go a long way to increasing conversions.

      That's exactly what I'm feeling.

      Hi Dave, thanks for the feedback. I'm working on a FAQ section now. To answer your question, This course assumes some baseline web development experience. If you've used the terminal, HTML, CSS, or JS then learning React is very doable. Even if you don't feel like you know enough, you end up learning a lot about all these technologies as you learn React.

      I wrote an article on getting started with React. If you've done the two things in the article mentioned in the article, you are probably ready for the course.

      UPDATED: I added a FAQ section to the page

    Bought this course yesterday because I want to use React with Framer. I have a more than adequate experience with HTML and CSS. Not enough with JavaScript, but can hack my way around. So let’s give it a try I thought! Immediately after uncompressing the files I was a bit lost as to which video to start first, because there is no order to them. I followed the order that is on the website. Already in the first video I was having a hard time following things. It dives in immediately and a lot of the terms and concepts that are mentioned I have no idea about yet.

    Thanks for making this course Philip, but would love to see back at least some kind of basic primer on some things. Lead us by the hand and tell us as if we know nothing yet. As an example, I learned Framer Classic by watching Framer Course - learnux.io. They go through even the most rudimental things on CoffeeScript and JavaScript concepts, which is a great way to learn. While watching the videos I would regularly pause them as I was inspired to go do my own research on terms or concepts that were mentioned. I would take notes and even write more complex exercises than the videos would show. Learned a ton.

    Maybe I just need to brush up on JavaScript and then come back to this. Just not sure if the needed baseline understanding of JavaScript — as you mention on your website — would be sufficient.

    Eager to see where you will eventually lead this course. Again thanks for doing this.

    The landing page needs to communicate something about WTF Philip Davis is and why I should learn React from his course when there are far cheaper alternatives on Udemy that are vetted by user reviews.

    If you don't have enough customers at this stage to be able to offer reviews, at least include a testimonial from a client or an employer to verify to prospects that you know your stuff.
