Immutable with Tina Heiligers


"Love it or hate it, Immutable can save your neck!

We’ve all heard the mantra: don’t mutate your react state, keep reducers pure functions, always return copies of your data with changes in place etc etc. There are two approaches to solve for these: 1. The gentleman’s agreement, where we purposefully and intentionally make a copy of data before updating it and return the copy (or we should be!), 2. Enforcing immutability with a helper - Immutable. I’ll go over what Immutable is, how it compares with work flows in conventional javascript and implications to your Redux store set up"

"Who am I? Tina Heiligers is a full stack javascript web developer at Tallwave, a Scottsdale based company that partners with brands on business strategy, product design and development, branding and digital marketing strategies.

I work with Node (and the Hapi framework) on the backend, React with Redux and Redux-Saga on the front end and secretly want to Redux everything!"
