This is just a tutorial. There are more appropriate places for similar tutorials.

I don't understand Microsoft's philosophy behind spamming edx with this kind of material. Compared to most other MOOCs this one appears extremely amateurish.

Anyway if you're totally new to Javascript frameworks or specifically React then take this one, it will introduce you to the necessary.
