Thomas Weibenfalk - React.js - Create a Movie App
React JS | Fundamentals - Project Movie App - Hooks 
Learn to build a visually stunning Movie app with React, Styled Components and TMDB API.
Want to become good at React fast? Are you a an aspiring React.js developer or know some React stuff already? Do you want to master React.js fundamentals and more in a real world project oriented course? Do you want to learn quick and straight down to the point? Then this is the course for you!
Guaranteed no “foo” and “bar” … and no “to-do-list” app 😉
My teaching style is learning by building small projects. My decades of experience in web development have taught me that this style lets you learn fast and efficient. Stop wasting your time!
This is a course where You’ll learn how to create a Movie App from scratch based on The Movie DB API.
Some reviews are saying:
“Great React Course.. I could’ve saved $10,000 in Coding bootcamp if i had just taken this course first..!”
“The instructor was very creative in figuring out a nice illustrative use case for the Movie DB API.”
“A perfect course and a great project with the best explanation possible, I recommend it to everyone that wants to understand the logic of React and how it works.”
What will we do in the course?
We’ll build a light version of an IMDB style React DB Web Application and dive straight into creating our app and gradually learn more until we reach the finish.
My main goal with this course is to mix fun with teaching. There’s many tutorials and courses out there that are great but too complex and focus on a lot at the same time. I’m a great movie lover myself so therefore I thought it would be fun to create a web application based on movie data for this course. Hope you enjoy it too!
