JavaScript for PHP Geeks: ReactJS & Symfony

We'll email you with updates

This course is in the planning stages

NOTE: This tutorial is VERY important to us! But because Symfony 4 will be released in Nov 2017, we will not release this tutorial until the beginning of 2018. We're sorry about the delay! We want this tutorial to be great and be useful for a long time into the future!

ReactJS! Woohoo! With ES6 and webpack behind us, we can finally have some serious fun! In this course, we'll introduce ReactJS, get it working through Webpack and starting building a real application. We'll talk about some of the best ways to get your React app to talk to Symfony, including authentication!

  • Components & React Architecture
  • Jumping into JSX!
  • Getting used to props vs state
  • Server-side ReactJS Rendering
  • Authentication With Symfony
  • Making API Calls back to Symfony
  • Returning JSON and massaging it in React
  • Handling collections in React
  • Modifying state in a parent component
  • Using refs

Questions? Conversation?

  • 2018-02-17 Greg Maka

    Do you guys have a timeframe when this course will be released?

  • 2018-02-13 Xeyos

    Surely it will be very useful, I would have however preferred the integration with VueJS that seems indeed excellent.

  • 2018-02-06 Diego Aguiar

    Haha, that was funny ;)

    Sorry for delaying this tutorial, but right now we are focused on releasing Symfony4 tutorials, I hope you can enjoy them as well


  • 2018-02-06 Vince Liem

    Still can't wait for this course. But I said that too a few months ago... So the parameters are wrong and I can wait... But not this time

    Can't wait :D

  • 2018-01-28 Konrad

    Looking forward to this course!

  • 2018-01-19 Victor Bocharsky

    No problem ;) This means users are really interested in this course which is good, so maybe this course will be released faster. But anyway, we're going to release a few Symfony 4 related tutorials at first which makes sense.


  • 2018-01-19 Juan Luis Garcia

    I'm sorry Victor!
    I have not seen that comment .... =(

  • 2018-01-18 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Juan,

    I just replied about it a few hours ago here ;)

    Unfortunately, there's no plans to release it very soon, we're going to release a few other tutorials before start planning this one.


  • 2018-01-18 Juan Luis Garcia

    when is this course release?

  • 2018-01-18 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Nacer,

    We're going to release a few tutorials before it, then this course is next for planning. See the order of our upcoming tutorials here: . But it's difficult to say an approximate release date, sorry.


  • 2018-01-18 Nacer

    It's for when this course ?

  • 2017-12-08 Mykel Chang

    Symfony 4 + ReactJS : Can't wait for it <3

  • 2017-11-20 weaverryan

    :) I'm definitely interested in this. React first... then we'll see what interesting things we can do from there

  • 2017-11-17 Knayz

    What about flux or redux?

  • 2017-10-24 Knayz

    Hey @weaverryan!
    Thank you, for your most full replay on my question. I fully agree with you. So let's start waiting for 2018!

  • 2017-10-24 weaverryan

    Hey Knayz!

    Yes, that's my decision... or my fault perhaps :). We added a note about it to the top of this tutorial. Basically, with Symfony 4 so close (its release is in about 1 month), we want to create a React tutorial that will be the most helpful into the future for people. That means we need to delay it until the beginning of 2018 so that it can be created using Symfony 4. I apologize for the delay - that's 100% my fault. We should not have even advertised this course until we were quite close to releasing it. We're working to do that better in the future and give people much more accurate release dates.


  • 2017-10-24 Knayz

    Diego Aguiar you mean it is true. Earlier React course was planning after Php-Unit course and it was second in roadmap. Now it is fourth in queue. Please, confirm or refute this news.

  • 2017-10-23 Diego Aguiar

    Haha, hey Knayz! Thanks for your honest words

    Good things are worth waiting, aren't they? :)

  • 2017-10-23 Knayz

    Oh, No!
    I see you have inserted 2 more new courses before React in roadmap. My heart is broken. I can't get through that news.

  • 2017-10-16 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Mohammad,

    See Ryan's comment 3 days ago: ;)


  • 2017-10-15 Mohammad Althayabeh

    Any updates on this course?

  • 2017-10-13 Christophe Lablancherie

    Hey :)

    Better late than never ^^, i will wait :D

  • 2017-10-13 weaverryan

    Yo Christophe Lablancherie!

    I recently added a note about this... unfortunately, at this point, we need to wait until Symfony 4 is released to do this tutorial "correctly". That means we're targeting this tutorial for early 2018. It will be one of our big priorities... just as soon as Symfony 4 is out (we don't want to build it on Symfony 3... when 4 is now just about 1 month away!)

    Thanks for your patience!

  • 2017-10-12 Christophe Lablancherie

    Hi :)

    Is this course nearly coming ? ^^'

  • 2017-09-27 weaverryan

    We've added that to our idea list. I think it makes a lot of sense to talk about Vuejs also!

  • 2017-09-27 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Felipy,

    We're going to release a few different from JS courses first: Ansistrano deploy and PHPUnit testing, then this one on our way. You can track our rough roadmap of upcoming courses here:


  • 2017-09-26 Felipy Amorim

    after release of webpack, what's the plan for this course ? :D

  • 2017-09-26 SKS

    And with Vuejs? Working with Vuejs is easy with Laravel but not in Symfony.

    Hey Burak,

    We start releasing Webpack course this week. Actually, the first release will be today :) Then we'll start working on this one about ReactJS. We can't start with it until Webpack course is released, because most probably we will need Webpack features in that course. So you can track Webpack release to see the progress.

    Cheers and thanks for your patience!

  • 2017-07-31 Burak Demir

    When will it be published? I'm looking forward to.

  • 2017-07-19 weaverryan

    Thanks for your patience - sorry this one has been slow O:)

  • 2017-07-19 Lucas Vilela

    Hey Guys ! Looking forward for this course.. almost every month I come here to check if is available !!
    Let's do it !!


  • 2017-07-05 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Juan,

    We don't have a release date yet, but this course will be released *after* the one about Webpack. We're working on EasyAdminBundle and Ansistrano tutorials right now, so the next should be a few JS tuts, but anyway Webpack course will be first.


  • 2017-07-04 Juan Luis Garcia

    Hi Ryan!!
    When is this course available?

  • 2017-06-01 weaverryan

    Yo Greg!

    Hmm, I don't think we'll talk about React Native... but if there's some specific question/problem that you're wondering about related to the Symfony endpoint/API and how it would communicate with React Native (e.g. authentication) ... that might be interesting. Let us know!


  • 2017-05-31 Greg

    Hi guys, any chance you will cover using React Native for mobile app development with a Symfony endpoint?

  • 2017-05-31 weaverryan

    Hi Victor!

    We'll start work on the Webpack tutorial very soon, then this will be after. Unfortunately, this tutorial may still be a couple months away. But, I'm going to do my best!


  • 2017-05-29 Victor Boutte'

    whats the status of this course? When will it be available?

  • 2017-05-29 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey guys,

    Sorry for the delay, unfortunately we don't have a specific release date for this course yet and were releasing a few other non-JS tutorials lately. But anyway, this course will be released only after the "JavaScript for PHP Geeks: Webpack for Module Loading Awesomeness" course. You may press "Notify me when course is available" button to be notified as soon as possible.


  • 2017-05-27 Jon Kamke

    How soon is soon : (

  • 2017-05-09 Huy Nguyen

    i want this so bad

  • 2017-05-05 Victor Bocharsky

    Hey Romolo,

    It will come out after "JavaScript for PHP Geeks: Webpack for Module Loading Awesomeness", but before we're about to release EasyAdminBundle course. We also have a roadmap of upcoming screencasts in case you're interested in it:


  • 2017-05-05 Romolo Asromo

    I really hope this course comes out soon!

  • 2017-03-22 weaverryan

    Ha! It'll be a bit longer, sorry :). We have Ansible, PHP7 and webpack tutorials coming first! But, I *really* am excited to get to this one...

  • 2017-01-01 Christopher Jackson

  • 2016-12-08 Victor Bocharsky

    You're right, haha. This course was frozen... but Ryan recently have started to work actively on it, so we really will have it soon ;)


  • 2016-12-08 Christophe Lablancherie
