Managing React State with MobX Training Course


React is a JavaScript library for building user interfaces. MobX is a library for managing state in React applications.

This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at developers who wish to use MobX in their React applications to more effectively manage state.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Set up MobX in React.
  • Understand the uses cases for MobX, as compared to Redux (e.g., MobX’s “classical paradigm” vs Redux’s “functional paradigm”).
  • Use MobX as an advanced state layer for React applications.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
