Learning React with Kent C. Dodds

According to builtwith.com, more than 10 million websites are powered by React framework.  Of the top 10k sites by traffic, 44.7% of those are built with React.  This javascript framework is capable of powering a wide array of modern applications and remains fairly beloved by developers that use it.

In this episode, I interview Kent C. Dodds, Software Engineer Educator.  We discuss Kent’s journey learning React and keeping up with the changes it’s taken on as the framework evolves and how those lessons culminated into his Epic React course.

Your app has users.  You owe it to them to take their security seriously. Do you want your authentication system to be something your developers built as a side project? Or do you want an enterprise-grade solution that has compliance, security, and industry standards built-in as first principles? I’m describing Auth0, an identity platform built for developers. Your development team’s time is a scarce resource. Don’t waste it reinventing the wheel. With Auth0 you can save hundreds or thousands of hours in implementation and maintenance. With this premier solution for identity, you can configure advanced features like social login, single sign-on, and multi-factor authentication. Focus on what you’re good at and let Auth0 manage what they’re best at – helping you deliver the best, safest user experience possible. Make login their problem, not yours. Visit auth0.com to learn more.
