Modern Full-Stack Development (Apress)
Wednesday, 01 April 2020

This book explores what React, Node, TypeScript, Webpack, and Docker have to offer individually, and how they all fit together in modern app development. Author Frank Zammetti begins with explanations of the individual elements, then expands to constructing two different real-world apps. By the end, readers should have a solid grasp of building apps with React, Node.js, and TypeScript, as well as how Webpack can be used to optimize and organize your code, and how Docker can be used to run the apps.
