Managing application state in a way that is both performant and maintainable is no small task. Redux offers a battle-tested solution for managing state in large, production-scale applications. That said, it can be overwhelming to wrap your head around when you're beginning and even trickier when you're learning it in the context of a React application. It this workshop, we'll look at Redux in its simplest form. We'll explore best practices for structuring your data and binding your application state to a React application. We'll implement advanced patterns such as undo/redo, middleware, and asynchronous actions that work with a server-side API.
