As a developer that loves learning new technologies and never stay behind, I decided to leave Angular(with the exit of Angular 2) and move to a different world. Faster, stronger, better and more advanced – the React world, and I have never looked back.
Before we even start talking about React, I want to share my 2 cents. As a developer, I have never enjoyed writing code as much as I enjoy doing it with React.
What is React?
Many are comparing Angular to React, which is incorrect. React is a small view library, as on the other hand, Angular is a full-blown MV* framework.
The founder of React, Jordan Walke, Facebook software engineer, wanted to create a better solution for everyday problems of a front end developer. He wanted to do a much better, smarter, faster way of creating web-application, and yes – he succeeded.
Today, React is being developed by Facebook themselves, although it is a somewhat new technology, React already has million of front end developers supporting and using it in their own projects. The most common ones, still would be Facebook Feed and Instagram.
