React Final Form with Erik Rasmussen

As our guest today points out, most enterprise software applications are essentially forms for collecting data.  The <FORM> tag and related components started appearing in HTML fairly early and those same concepts are still in use with modern web browsers.  However, the technology for capturing state, validating input, and providing other common services for the management of form data has continued to evolve in many languages and frameworks.

Erik Rasmussen is the author of many popular open-source libraries including Redux Form and React Final Form.  In this interview, we discuss the need for those tools to fill in the market and some of the modern approaches for form state management.
