Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a React component, part of Learn React.js: The Basics.

We're going to say React dot create class,…and this function is going to take in an object.…Now, the first method that's part of this object…is going to be called render.…Render is always required when we create a component,…because it tells react what we want to render to the DOM.…We're going to return a div.…This div is going to contain an H1,…and it's going to contain a P.…
