Remember when making a website meant slapping some jQuery onto a PHP backend you built over the weekend? Fun!

Remember when you then had to update that website and couldn't spend time with your friends because the server was on fire? Lame.

Use React, spend more time with friends, and make more money. The average salary for a React engineer in San Francisco is $153,000/year.

React.js Webinar will give you everything you need to learn React, have some fun, and see if it fits your project.

jQuery looks great at first - generate some HTML, sprinkle a bit of JavaScript and woah suddenly you're duplicating all your backend logic in jQuery. How big of an app can you really build?

With Angular you just need to learn about dependency injection, scopes, directives, services, factories, providers, config statements, $scope.$apply, digest cycle, data flow… not to mention child scopes, isolated scopes, transcludent scopes… ugh

And there's a new framework every day. By the time you learn one, it's already old and useless, and the developers have moved on to the next shiny toy.

React is here to stay. The big boys are using it, the critical mass is building, and everyone is loving it.
