React Introduction to JSX. Hi there, my name is Farish Kashefinejad, I'm the software development domain lead at Cloud Academy. If you have any questions or concerns about this course, please feel free to reach out to email@example.com. On the screen, I have the Cloud Academy Lab environment with the App.js file for a React application open in the editor. Looking at this file, there's a app function, and inside of this app function there is an HTML element.
Now, I'm going to transition to a split screen with the browser and editor open side by side. And now I'm going to use this environment to demonstrate expressions inside of JSX. And just to have a understanding here, at a high level, an expression is a valid unit of code that resolves to a value, in simpler terms just any code that could be referred to or executed. And in general, JSX is an expression itself. Now, to begin with the basic example, above the app() function I will declare a variable const name and set it equal to my name.
