      WEB DESIGN @SAGRADO: ReactJS Explained

      Sagrado Global, the School of Professional Studies at Sagrado, invites you to join us to understand in ‘arroz y habichuelas’ how ReactJS works and how you can use it in your next project. Also, be ready for live coding and demos. ReactJS is a JavaScript library meant to solve the problem of managing the state of a web application. ReactJS is generally used for the view layer, i.e. what you see on your screen when you open a web site. To get this done, it uses two things: state and props, which are passed in a view or component. The goal is to always render the same output based on the props passed. Given user actions, the state can change and the view is modified accordingly. Basically, the way data in handled in react is simple: actions go up, e.g. a click of a button, and data (state and props) comes down, e.g. result of clicking a button.
