Computer Systems Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

React.js is an open source JavaScript library widely used to create fast, modular web and mobile applications. This hands-on course follows on from COMP 2132 and was designed for students with prior experience developing web pages using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript. Students must provide their own current model PC, i5 or higher equivalent processor, 8 GB of RAM minimum, and 256 GB minimum storage. Highspeed internet access is needed for online sections and for homework. Starting with an introduction to React.js concepts, participants concentrate on how React works with browsers and the Document Object Model (DOM). Then students use the modern Hooks API to built clean and testable components. Instructor led labs and exercises focus on how to structure and develop single-page applications using NPM, Webpack and Babel, following current industry standards. Topics include: Routing, Server-Side Rendering, Styling, State Management, and deployment. Please Note: Attendance, participation in class and the BCIT Learning Hub are required. Students may have an average total time commitment of 11 hours each week; with 3 hours of class time, and 8 hours of homework. ​Web developers should also consider learning multiple advanced JavaScript tools including: COMP 2909 -Angular and Vue.js Fundamentals and COMP 3012 Back-End Web Development with Node.js. COMP 3013 is an elective in several BCIT Computing applied associate certificates; Web Development (AWD), Web and Mobile Application Development (WMA), Advanced Java Development (AJD) and Advanced .NET Development; as well as the CST/PTS Diploma. Upon completion successful participants will be able to use React to create and deploy dynamic web applications quickly, with more functionality and less code. This course replaces COMP 2913 as of January 2023.
