Let's get a quick overview of what this course is all about and how it's been structured to make sure you're as productive as possible with these new features.
Hi Kent, I get that hooks is a cool new feature but what’s the selling point? I was hoping to be sold on this upfront but I watched your intro and the second refactor video but couldn’t find a clear answer to “why” I should refactor to hooks.
This course is not intended to sell you on the "why" behind hooks, but the "how." If you're looking for the why, then you should start here: https://reactjs.org/hooks
Specifically watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpw9EHDh2bM
Also, I gave a talk about my take as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWsZcBiwgVE&list=PLV5CVI1eNcJgNqzNwcs4UKrlJdhfDjshf
I hope that helps.
Thanks Ken, I’ve already reviewed those links and I get the “why”. I just think that any talk of refactoring should be accompanied with some selling on “why”. Looking forward to digging into the rest of the course!
Sorry, Kent. I keep forgetting the "t", I've worked with too many "Kens".
I think the format on egghead explains is like that. Maybe they can take a deeper approach towards understanding of concepts. Since you call it a course, so maybe concepts first and then overwhelming stuff later. Even for this I was aware of hooks and already coded a todo in that last week. I found just a shallow thing on first two instances I tried two times :D Doing things in advance is something not course oriented but demo oriented.
Oh! Can I edit my comment? Lot many grammatical and typos. Sorry!
Kent, would be helpful, if you point the source code before and after using hooks. Where can I get that?
how could I acces to the existing project?
The source code is linked in the next lesson!
