React is a powerful design tool. There's a lot you can do with it that would be difficult with a traditional design application. Prototyping with realistic data sets, creating complex interactions and shared component libraries are just the tip of the iceberg.
React opens up new ways of designing interfaces and the systems that support them. If you're interested in using React for design work but not sure where to start, I made this course for you.

I've never used React, where should I start?
I wrote an article with my two cents. The tldr is: 1. Scaffold a project using create-react-app and build something simple. 2. Read the React docs all the way through.
