React Class Software

We teach this class online using Zoom and recommend that each student have two monitors: one display to view the instructor presentation and one screen for notetaking and coding along with the instructor.

All course materials are distributed via GitHub and Google Drive. Access to those services is required for the class; please ensure your firewall and network policies will allow you to access those resources.
We will provide each student with a virtual environment using CodeSandbox.io for coding; no need to install any software.
