React and Flux for WordPress Developers

React is a small library from Facebook that challenges how we think about change, state, structure, and reusability in our REST API-powered, modern, and fast single-page applications.

In this presentation, Nikolay not only explains using and building with React but why you would want to use it to build a single-page application. He walks us through the tough changes of using a classic app to transition to a single page. React’s open-source UI library’s main purpose is to deal with this change.
