Video description

Easily adopt React Hooks for a more productive, maintainable, and cleaner React with a much flatter learning curve

About This Video

  • We find out what problems React Hooks are really capable of solving, and exactly how they solve those problems, with an initial simple and a straightforward example
  • Then, once you understand the real motivation behind React Hooks and how they fit into React's architecture, you'll use them in a meaningful way
  • Finally, you'll work on a real-world project using React Hooks and see how class components can best replace function components

In Detail

Hooks are a new feature and let you use state and other React features without writing a class. Hooks (also called React Hooks) are available from the v16.8.0 React release and are backward-compatible.

This course will help you get up-and-running with the latest feature that all React and non-React users are talking about: React Hooks. You'll learn how to use them in a practical way while building a React application. Then you'll learn how to break down complex components into smaller functions with the help of Hooks. You'll access state and lifecycle Hooks in a React function component. We cover the different Hooks available and you'll see how to create your own custom Hooks. We'll also cover the rules that govern using Hooks in your applications and their advantages.

By the end of the course, you'll be confident enough to use React Hooks to simplify the way you write your React code.


This course is for developers working with React who are curious about and want to use Hooks features for writing their application. Knowledge of JavaScript and React is assumed.
