With React Bootcamps now an integrated part of our programs, we took the chance to ask Maher Alail, one of our Lead Trainers all the questions we normally get from our fellow community considering to apply.
Why learn React?
Question: Why should someone learn React?
Maher: React is one of the most in-demand frameworks in the world. React was originally created by Facebook and they continue to update and improve it. Simply, those who know the framework well are going to thrive in a career in tech.
There are countless tech companies using React right now - Facebook, Instagram, Netflix, eBay, Dropbox, Reddit, and Airbnb - just to name a few.

Question: What kind of career paths do people with React have?
Question: Who is the bootcamp ideal for?
Question: What are the most important things that students will learn in this bootcamp?
Maher: Re:Coded’s React Bootcamp takes you through 200 hours of content where you’ll learn the fundamentals of React front-end web programming. The curriculum is provided and certified by Flatiron School, one of the best coding schools in the world, and has been adapted by Re:Coded. The bootcamp will teach you to think and build like software developers by solving test-driven labs and working on real-life projects. If you decide to apply for this bootcamp, you will learn deep dive into React, Hooks, Redux, Context APIs and so much more!
Question: What are you looking for in an application?
Maher: "We want to see your passion and motivation learning React and we really want to know why you want to learn with Re:Coded! We receive hundreds of applications to our bootcamps and we really read through each and every one of them. The most successful applications are from people who tell us about an idea or a goal that they have and how going through this bootcamp will help them to achieve that goal. This is our first chance to get to know a little bit about your goals and ambitions - so please share them with us!"
Question: How much coding and exactly what would you need to know to apply?
In React applications, Node.js and npm are used as runtime backend and package manager respectively. You need to be able to install packages via the command-line interface and run npm scripts. You also need to know how to use git as a source code management tool.
Finally, come prepared with your code editor of preference or IDE, and lots of questions and passion to dive deep into the realm of modern frontend web development."
Question: What should I do if I’m not sure I know enough coding to apply to this bootcamp?
Maher: "Don't let anything discourage you! We see plenty of applicants who think they know too little when in fact the opposite is true. The same goes for English skills - don't let that hold you back.
