Connecting your React app to a database

So, you built a cool new app in React.

Okay, cool! But does data go back to its initial state after every refresh?

Do you want to store things for longer than that? Then you need a database, friend-o!

In this tutorial, learn how to connect your React to a database and bring your app to life. See what tools you can use to keep state in sync with a database. In this React JS presentation, we explore some shiny modern libraries that abstract the process of data fetching and syncing to make it as painless as possible.
