- Hello, and welcome to Building a Polling App with Socket.IO and ReactJS. I'm Alex Banks. The purpose of this course is to develop an interactive, full stack polling application that uses data in real time. The app will allow a speaker to start a presentation, and interact with audience members by asking questions and graphing their responses. To build this app, we're gonna be using a combination of technologies. We'll get started by setting up an Express app with Node.js, then we'll incorporate Socket.IO to handle real time data sharing. On the client side, we're gonna be using React to build our user interfaces.
We'll wrap up by refactoring our React components for ES6 integration. When we're finished, you'll have a working Socket application that handles real time data creatively. So, with that, let's dive into building this polling app with Socket.IO and React.
