Redux vs React Query: The Final Quest

We’re back, it’s about time it started raining talks this April, isn’t it?

Many of you old frontenders will have lived through the pre-React Hooks era, where it was all about classes extending React.Component and where the use of a library called Redux abounded, which marked a whole obsession with state management in applications. To make a request to an API you had to create an action, a reducer, and a thunk, an epic or a saga, depending on the library, and then a selector, and then a slice. Something as simple as a request… 🤔.

Then everything changed with Hooks, we started to create our own primitive usePromise, useFetch, useRequest… Until libraries like react-query and apollo-client came along, and revolutionised the whole thing.

First we’ll start with Yahima telling us his experience with react-query and RTK Query, and in which cases it’s better to use one over the other. Fact: RTK Query is a tool that runs on top of the Redux Toolkit, a simplification of Redux.

After the talk, we have decided to try something new, and we are going to leave a space for the speaker, attendees and organisers to talk and reflect on the evolution of state management in React and web applications.

We want martyrdoms, goodness, complaints, anecdotes and experiences! We want to discuss, share and comment without fear.

So don’t forget to give the topic a thought before you go, we will!
