Working on @reactjs. Co-author of Redux and Create React App. Building tools for humans.
I’ve started a new coding blog in December: Overreacted.
People often choose Redux before they need it. “What if our app doesn’t scale without it?” Later, developers frown at the indirection Redux introduced to their code. “Why do I have to touch three files to get a simple feature working?” Why indeed!
I receive programming questions on Twitter, GitHub, email, and other channels. I try to answer them when I can. Lately I haven’t been able to do that very well because I’m a human and don’t scale.
Note: React Hot Loader 3, released a month after I published this article, solves most of the problems described in this post. Give it a try!
