Do you want to speed up your web application or make your code cleaner and more reusable? We will show you how to take the first steps to React Hooks.

React Hooks are a new addition in React 16.8. They let you keep your functional components as functions and “hook” into React specific functionality. With Hooks, there is no need to memorize lifecycle methods and your code is much cleaner, customizable and reusable across components, unlike the class component state.

You will get a simple web application that is implemented by class components and during the workshop, you will migrate part of application from class components to functional components with React Hooks. We will start with basic Hooks delivered by React library and then move to implementation of custom Hooks with its own reusable logic.
