Managing state in a UI is challenging. It's genuinely difficult and the solutions require a depth of knowledge and experience to understand. Everything is a balance of tradeoffs in complexity, performance, and user experience.

This is a series of interviews with experts, open-source maintainers, and UI developers that have combined decades of experience building stateful UI applications for millions of users.

Part interview, part screen share, these videos should benefit you if you're building web applications.

They focus on React, but the underlying principles are valid for UI work in general (and beyond).

    Recent updates to redux exposing a hooks-based API address some of its most serious drawbacks and make it even more appealing. This course will show you how to apply redux to a modern react hooks application. I hope you leave this course with a continued appreciation for React Hooks and renewed enthusiasm for Redux.
