Follow Along With Zac Gordon and the React Explained Book

If you spend any time in the WordPress world, you’ve probably come across Zac Gordon.

Zac is an enthusiastic and charming teacher who focuses on Javascript in WordPress. He borrowed the phrase “Learn Javascript Deeply” from Matt Mullenweg and he made it into his personal slogan. For the last several years, Zac has produced video classes, online conferences, live talks, and podcasts that focus on teaching you how to use Javascript in WordPress.

Today, I’m delighted to say we’re working with Zac on a book, “React Explained”.

React Explained will be a fun and enjoyable introduction to React, which is the Javascript framework of choice for WordPress, Drupal, Magento, and thousands of developers. WordPress, Drupal and Magento are all standardizing on React.

In this book, we will dig deep into how React works and how to build applications with it. While we will focus on building for the frontend on the web, many of the skills you will learn will also apply to writing React on the server side, for native applications and even for Virtual Reality environments.

How Zac is writing this book

We’re writing and developing this book in the open. Zac is a great follow on Twitter at Over the next few weeks, he’ll be tweeting out questions, and asking for suggestions and feedback as he writes the book.

Make sure to follow Zac on Twitter, and then look for the book to be published here at OSTraining in the next few weeks!
