  • Overview
  • Transcript

React is a flexible framework that makes it easy to build single-page web applications. One of its tools is a set of lifecycle methods which you can add to your components. These methods are called at different stages in the life of a component, and they make it possible to manage your component's changing state and resources.

In this course, you'll take a look at each of React's seven lifecycle methods and see how they can work together to create dynamic React components.

We've built comprehensive guides to help you learn JavaScript and React, whether you're just getting started or you want to explore more advanced topics.

How to use it in your application and we'll talk a little bit about where these functions come in handy. And we're gonna do this all in the context of building a relatively simple timer. So let's check it out.
