I had no idea why I'd want to use Redux when I started this course. This course really made it easy to understand the how & why of redux. Thanks Dan!
Redux is an evolution of the ideas presented by Facebook's Flux, avoiding the complexity found in Flux by looking to how applications are built with the Elm language.
Redux is useful for React applications, but React is not a requirement!
In this series, we will learn the basics of Redux, so that you can start using it to simplify your applications.
It's highly recommended that you have a quick read of the Redux documentation alongside or before you watch the series.
There are some amazing community notes on this course here on Github.
Once you are finished with this course be sure to check out part 2: building-react-applications-with-idiomatic-redux
