Final Release Date: November 2015

In this Hands-on with React and Ruby on Rails training course, expert author Jonathan Lebensold will teach you how to build a web application from setup to deployment with React and Ruby on Rails. This course is designed for users that already have experience with web development and scripting languages.

You will start by learning about the Flux application pattern, including how to integrate Flux into React components, introduce ES6 with Ruby on Rails, and mitigate Flux JavaScript to Flux ES6. From there, Jonathan will teach you how to finalize the Flux architecture. This video tutorial also covers complex UI interactions in Flux and configuring NodeJS and Rails. Finally, you will learn about automated testing, including how to use code coverage, write model specs, and test Flux with RSpec.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be capable of designing and building your own web applications with React and Ruby on Rails. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

Comments about oreilly Hands-on with React and Ruby on Rails:

Note: I'm an Intermediate Rails developer, but not super-savvy JS developer

I'm just now into the second chapter and I'm completely stuck. The versions of sprockets-es6, System.js, es6-module-loader, etc. are all old now (and actually were at the time of recording as stated by the Author). I just cant recommend that someone pay this kind of money for something that is broken.

If O'Reilly is going to continue selling this video course, I feel like the Author should update the videos to reflect the latest versions of what is being used.

PS: This IS NOT the author's fault, and he even mentions that things will probably change 6 months from now; which was about 6 months ago when thi was recorded. Bleeding-edge software such as libraries used in this course change, and they change often. It's just frustrating to have paid for this and I can't progress past the 2nd chapter.

      Comments about oreilly Hands-on with React and Ruby on Rails:

      I had a few problems getting modernizr.js to load so I just skipped that.
      This is for intermediate Rails developers but a link to the source code would have been helpful.

      Comments about oreilly Hands-on with React and Ruby on Rails:

      Jon has done an excellent job here for walking an experienced Rails developer through the process of creating a front end using React and Flux. However, one week Link that Oreilly Video Courses have is NOT having a discussion section with the author. This has nothing to do with the current course but a general feedback to Oreilly Media. Other publishers who charge far less than here provide much better interactive learning environment. I own a large number of courses from Udemy where the instructor and fellow students have a vibrant community oriented discussion forum. That is the way to learn. Not throw things over the wall.
