Abstract

Redux is one of the most popular approchaes to state management in React applications. However, it comes with a decent amount of boilerplate plus it often ends up being used everywhere, no matter the context or app size. This talk explores a barebones alternative approach to state management that is suitable for small/medium apps as well as define the pros and cons when compared to Redux. We will live code relying on the latest versions of context and hooks React APIs. Don’t miss if you want to see how much simpler managing state can become.
