Abstract

Redux is probably the most misunderstood library out there. A lot of big serious project codebases which use Redux end up looking like the Redux Documentation’s toy code examples. To para-phrase one of the Redux core contributors, the documentation examples are just for the sake of starting off with Redux and do not reflect a pattern in which Redux should be used in. In the workshop we will write our own baby redux clone and come up with different approaches/patterns it can be used for various use cases. The goal is to understand what redux is at a fundamental level, how it can be used more effectively as per use cases and how to be more creative while using it.

Speaker bio

To ramp-up a team of backend Java developers to start quickly contributing to a frontend React Redux project, I wrote a wrapper on redux which makes working with a React Redux App very similar to a Spring Boot backend project. Also a general hatred of writing code with if-elses and non pattern matching switch cases lead me to use Redux in various different structures. Both of the above activities lead me exploring Redux internals quite a lot.
