Requisite React

Kent talks about how important it is to understand the abstractions that we use (Hooks, Suspense, JSX, etc), if we want to level up our abilities, speed and skills.

Kent C. Dodds at React Amsterdam 2019

React is a brilliant JavaScript library for building simple and complex user interfaces. In our eagerness to apply React to our most complex of problems and ship solutions today, we can get lost in the 🌲🌲🌲 forest of abstractions 🌲🌲🌲. When it comes to leveling up our skills in anything, I find the most effective method is to take a step back and understand the foundational fundamentals. To strip away all abstraction until what we're left with is the bare bones. The better you understand an abstraction, the more effective you will be at using it. In this talk, we'll get more effective at using React Hooks, React Suspense, and JSX.
