How to think in React

The Stack Overflow Podcast

On today's episode, we chat about the mental models that can help you learn and master React. Our guest is Cassidy Williams, a Principal Developer Experience Engineer at Netlify. We also discuss the video games that are getting us through the pandemic and the strange experience of doing team meetings in virtual reality.

You can check out Cassidy's course on React here. It will teach you how to "build a reusable and declarative React component library. It's perfect for developers who are looking to build a scalable design system for their team and product." If you're not in the mood to subscribe, Cassidy would recommend Free Code Camp.
