GitHub, Shopify, Airbnb, Basecamp, Twitch, SoundCloud, Hulu, Zendesk, Square, and Highrise are a few big names, but there are thousands of applications built using this framework since its release. If you’re looking forward to creating any such feature-rich applications for the modern web, then go for this Learning Path.
Packt’s Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.
