JavaScript drives many modern web applications, particularly those that provide a mobile-friendly user experience. However, it’s time-consuming to create web apps with JavaScript and jQuery only, so React.js (usually called React) is used as a JavaScript library for creating user interfaces, making it possible to build interactive web apps quickly. React.js is used widely by companies large and small, including Netflix, Instagram, Reddit, and Uber. With the help of certain courses and bootcamps, students with fundamental knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript can learn React to start building single-page web applications.

Learning React is a common step along the web development career path. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for web developers is $70,000, and employment for web developers is projected to grow by 13 percent between 2018 and 2028. This is much faster than the 5 percent projected rate of growth across all occupations.

There are many bootcamps available for people who are interested in web development using React. Below is a list of bootcamps, combined with more details about course materials and the kind of students toward which the courses are geared. SwitchUp also includes alumni reviews with each listing to help people understand the students’ perspectives.
