A hike through hooks and suspense in React

MacGregor Partners 207 E Buffalo St #400 , Milwaukee, WI 53202 (map)

The React team threw us all for a loop with the release of hooks and suspense. It left many of us asking questions like are classes dead? Do I need to rewrite my application? Is Redux dead? How do I migrate?

In this session, we will answer these questions and more as we dig further into hooks and suspense. We will open with a brief primer of what APIs are officially released so far. Then we will explore these APIs by digging into what makes them tick. Maybe find a gotcha or two. The goal is to show what patterns exist today, what is ready for production and which are not fully baked. Above all, you will be given context around how these features work in order to show how to use them effectively. By the end of this talk, we will answer the questions of where to go from here and should you be using hooks and suspense.
