Paul Henschel is a frontend developer based in Germany and Switzerland. The founder of Luxundlaune, a photography platform in Germany, Paranoidandroid, a custom firmware for Android, and several open-source projects like react-spring and react-three-fiber.
In this interview, Joel and Paul discuss the biggest challenges in state management, picking a state management library for your project, and the Redux mindset that everything should revolve around State.
Applications made without state in mind will turn into a mess, like a drawing. It doesn't scale. You shift into modeling stuff around refactoring. It's not great. If I write something big, I always start with a good stable state model.
