Basic State Management using React Hooks

Managing state for UI components in React until now has required a dependency on libraries like Redux. But for simple UI level state management React has introduced Hooks in React. In this session, you'll gain an understanding of the basics of using state and effects. We'll also explore how to use the Context API with it's new Hook implementation. Learn all about the `useState`, `useEffect` and `useContext` Hooks in this beginner level talk on React Hooks a new feature since React 16.8.

Taking React Hooks to the Next Level with Reducers

Understanding the latest about ES6 and the latest features of React are just the beginning. In this session, we go beyond the simple examples of using functional components and Hooks in React and bring the Redux style state management, including dispatcher and reducer to our UI state management. In previous versions of React, one would need to import Redux and understand a lot more about the entire Redux pattern. We explore the `useReducer` Hook and track state from action to dispatcher, to reducer, all while using basic methods provided by the core React library. This is an intermediate level talk on Hooks, but most JavaScript programmers will recognize the patterns and practices we use to manage state in React 16.8.

This session will provide an overview of the latest features in Angular 8 and will examine what's coming in future releases.
