Why React Hooks

Oct 17, 2019

In October 2018, the React team announced a new feature which took the React community by storm. It's called "hooks" and after using it for a while I've come to love it. In this talk we'll go over what this feature is and focus on why this feature is necessary. We'll checkout an app built with traditional React class components and the same app built with React function components and hooks so we can compare the two approaches.
