Redux is one of the most popular approchaes to state management in React applications. However, it comes with a decent amount of boilerplate plus it often ends up being used everywhere, no matter the context or app size.

We will live code relying on the latest versions of context and hooks React APIs. Don’t miss if you want to see how much simpler managing state can become.
