Hey JavaScriptLA fans, Redux, which you have likely heard by now, is one of the most popular state management libraries around, especially when paired with React. It’s an important JavaScript tool to have at your disposal, but is it always the best tool for the job? In this talk we will get a look at the Context API, one of React’s newest and most powerful tools. The Context API gives you the ability to manage your data in a way that was not accessible to React ever before. Let’s explore the best practices for using this robust feature in production. We will look into different implementation patterns using default values to make your context instances more dynamic. We will track through Provider/Consumer relationships, and see just why it can be considered as a Redux replacement. About the Presenter: Phillip Trouthman is a Cerritos College graduate. He recently submitted many pull request all around Git, making a name for himself. Phillip has added logic in hook.js and panel.js to show the providers of each consumer component.
