First, React developers are in demand. So, adding React to your skills will open up many high-paying career opportunities for you and take you one step ahead of other IT specialists.
If you have at least one year of experience as a developer, React is a must-have skill for you. It's used by today’s top software companies and startups as well.
Second, it's a powerful technology when mastered. React allows you to build faster web applications that are easy to maintain, change and scale.
