A Guide to React Hooks
Published in 2021
After a long time trying to figure out how hooks work, you finally understand that nobody gets the full picture. You’ve seen several ‘How-to-use-react-hooks’ articles, but they all contradict each other, and you still can’t see the big picture.
You feel like something is wrong in your head – like you need to go to a hardware shop and buy bigger RAM or maybe just simpler plugs.
Learn more about the different ways you can use hooks to take your React application development experience to the next level. This new way of writing React components will make your code cleaner and more comfortable to test!
This eBook contains the content of my course about React hooks available at useEffect.dev.
If you prefer reading lessons in your browser, with interactive examples and exercises, you can purchase access to the course there. The PDF eBook is included in the Premium plan.
But if you only want to purchase the eBook and read it offline, on your cell or e-reader, you are at the right place!
