Hi react experts,

I know java web development (struts, spring mvc, jquery, html, css, not-so-deep on javascript, etc.)

Any suggestion on steps to be proficient in react js? (and same question for react native)

I will grearly appreciate it

React relies pretty heavily on advanced JavaScript knowledge; especially ES6. You can write React in ES5, but it's pretty wordy and cumbersome.

I'd recommend:
  • Bone up on JavaScript, ES6 in particular
  • Work through the React tutorial
  • Use create-react-app as a starter for your project -- it will set up all the way-too-complicated tooling needed to survive the modern JavaScript ecosystem
  • Don't let JSX intimidate you; it's actually a godsend
  • Practice, practice, practice...
