About this Episode

Returning guest Mark Erikson joins the React Round Up team to discuss how he found himself in the position of being an open source maintainer for Redux, how he's helped shepherd/author future versions of Redux (and the complete overhauls that happened when React Hooks were introcuded), and the new examples he's written for Redux Toolkit to make Redux easier for devs to get started with. Mark also addresses some commons misconceptions around React and Redux, such as: is React Context a perfect substitute for Redux (spoiler: it's not), and is Redux still relevant today (it is). Take a listen to hear about getting into open source, where Redux is headed and Mark's broader thoughts on helping the React community document and standardize all the options out there so developers have an easier time choosing the tools needed to solve their particular problems.
