Flexible State Management with MobX
by Yoni Weisbrod, Ivy
Redux has caught on like wild fire, and in this talk I will present another state manager that is rapidly gaining a following. MobX offers amazing performance benefits without the structure or boilerplate requirements imposed by Redux or other Flux implementations. But it is a paradigm shift away from Redux and immutable objects, so there are some concepts to wrap your head around. In this talk I will go through MobX and its tiny API, and explain how it fits into React via observers and observables. I will also touch on real-world structuring patterns, since the library is so flexible.
Yoni Weisbrod is lead developer at Ivymark.com and previously a full-stack consultant at 500tech. In another life, Yoni practiced intl. corporate law and holds a JD/LL.M.
