React has been on your radar for some time but you don't know the best way to dive in to the ecosystem. There are so many awesome libraries but it's hard to distinguish between what's necessary and what's addressing a pain-point you don't yet have.

In this talk, we will discuss strategies for learning React and some of React's core principles. From there, we will discuss how taking a component-based view of our front-end can help us build an application architecture that scales over time. Finally, we'll discuss some important lirbaries in React ecosystem and what problems they are working to solve.
