Join Eve Porcello for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learn React.js: The Basics (2015).
- This course has a set of Exercise FIles that you can download and follow along with, allowing you to work alongside me on the exact same files that I'll be working on. In the Exercise Files folder, you'll find folders for each chapter and a corresponding sub-folder for each of the videos where we'll be working on code. In each video's folder you'll find a Start folder and a Finish folder. When the video begins, I'll start with the Start file and when the video ends I'll end with the Finished file.
In this course I'll be using sublime text which is available from sublimetext.com, however, you can follow along in any text editor or development IDE of your choice. For the sake of ease, I'm going to load the whole Exercise Files folder into the sidebar by going to the Project menu and choosing Add Folder to Project. From here I can select the Exercise Files folder, click Open, and I'll see all of these files appear in our left sidebar.
With that in place, let's get to the content and officially begin up and running with React.js.
