React Hooks - Feat Game of Thrones

Submitted by Amandeep Singh (@adsingh) on Wednesday, 8 May 2019

Duration: 40 mins full talk


Brief description: Use fun-filled, story telling methodology to dive deep into the Journey of Functions to over power Classes and become Stateful React Components from Stateless/Dumb components. The thing which stands out would be how I would relate this to the Journey of characters from Game of Thrones

Key Takeaways:
- Deep understanding of React Hooks
- Power of Custom Hooks
- How React Hooks have changed React land
- Motivation to create custom hooks


[ Following in complete Game Of Thrones theme ]
- Function ruling the JS world
- ES6 Classes coming into being and over-powering Functions
- React Classes leaving Functions being called as Dumb Components
- React Hooks “Making Functions Great Again”
- Code Demos
- Custom Hooks


I can take a woorkshop as well on React Hooks. Participants should bring their laptops in case they want to code along.

    Key take aways from the talk:
    1. Practical examples on how React Hooks is a big win over preceding patterns like Higher Order Components and Render-props
    2. Showcase example implementation of Advanced React Hooks.
