How outdated is react.js guide

If you visit the react blog you’ll post about React.createClass getting deprecated warnings, and in the same blog you’ll have posts before 2016 that feature extends syntax.

The point with these courses is that you get to type and type and run to maybe get useful profile “certificate” and get yourself actually spelling out that syntax which happens to be deprecated.

Hi @methodjumper25237,

Sorry you don’t like the course! Technology moves too fast for Codecademy to keep all of their courses completely up to date. The important thing is to learn the syntax and principles so you can apply your knowledge outside of the course, without having to copy-paste everything :slight_smile:


Some of these principals are misrepresented, as I’ve filed bugs about.
