An impressive free, text-based course developed in partnership with tech companies, that offers feedback on coding exercises. Part of a larger full-stack curriculum, so a great option for novice coders.

The curriculum is text-based with hands-on exercises. The explanations are thorough and well-designed to progress from topic to topic. As a result, the course feels like an extension of the official React documentation with some added hands-on application.
While it isn’t quite as engaging or real-world applicable as the Scrimba or Frontend Masters courses we’re recommending, we preferred it to any of the Coursera courses we tested, and most of the other courses with screencasts. It’s a terrific free option, even if you don't complete the rest of the Fullstack Open curriculum.
The community has a high noise to signal ratio, so it's not very valuable.

The best overall combination of topic coverage, learning experience, instructor quality, and delivery of outcomes. And you can take it for FREE, though we recommend subscribing to get the full benefits.

Highly polished deep dive into React essentials, with lots of hands-on practice and a special emphasis on hooks.
