Are we React-ing wrongly?
Conference (BEGINNER level)
Everyone thinks he/she knows how to use React well, me included. But even React docs is only 90% completed, how can we be so sure we understand all the use cases each React feature is for?
Do you know how to use useMemo, useCallback or useEffect correctly? Do you know what use cases these hooks are designed for and that complications it can bring to your codebase in long run?
This is not a talk about best practices. It's about findings and lessons learned after working and debating about using React daily.
