React Holiday

Welcome to React Holiday 2020!

Hey friends 👋

It’s been a year since we last talked — a wild, unbelievable year!

A lot happens in a year and you might not want 25 React-related emails. No problem. I’m grateful for the times we shared in previous years and encourage you to unsubscribe using the clearly named button below.

Ok! Let’s talk about the season ahead!

Everything but React

The developers I admire most have a command over all the tools in their proverbial toolbelt. React might be their favorite hammer but when they need to drive a screw or saw thru a post, they use different tools.

As web developers, the tools of our trade are JavaScript, JSX, HTML, and CSS.

React is so incredible that we it often favor it, even when it’s not the best tool.

This React Holiday, we’ll cover 23 practices in JavaScript, JSX, and HTML that support and enhance your professional React development.

What do you think the most privileged type in React is?
