Now the real question is are you even allowed to put React in your cv if you've never worked with redux, don't know the concept of HOC and still make pull requests with componentWillReceiveProps ?

    I once knew a guy who put Java under "proficient languages" in his CV. I questioned him on this, as I didn't think he knew Java.

    "Yeah, but I'm sure I could work it out because I've done some Python, and it looks better if it's there."

    Are you implying one can’t develop nice react apps if they haven’t used redux?

    Not knowing redux is ok, it's not always necessary and some alternatives exist.

    Not knowing what an HOC is okish. The concept is not exactly basic but not that evolved either.

    Running queries in componentWillReceiveProps really sounds like something you shouldn't do 😋

    @grumpyoldaf not at all. I'm implying that your skill level within the library can be put to question if you've never built anything that has required redux or it's equivalent :)

    @Commodore you make some fair points sir. I'm just annoyed at "did a todo app on my free time now i can join your fully fleshed out application"-consultants who don't know shit about react.

    @Sunsette agreed.
    I'ld be inclined to ask said developer his proficiency beforehand. After all, if he's honest about the fact that he is a beginner, where is the harm?

    @Commodore when asked about his skill level in react he said 2/3. I’d say that would require all of the above, would you not agree? (Redux or equivalent)

    isn't componentWillReceiveProps depreciated and removed in recent releases?

    Or is it only in React Native? But I think this is a react thing not RN since we extend React.Component

    well, i never used redux in prod, and i’m pretty sure i never will. good design, principles and robustness, but poor S/N ratio.

    i wrote many pub/sub-ish stuff, some state managers, but redux not really. always went for observables/subjects before, now with hooks and proper typing system i’m dropping rxjs too as it doesn’t give me anymore the extra boost it used to

    @ostream calm down, @gitpush is right. componentWillReceiveProps has indeed been deprecated in favour of getDerivedStateFromProps.

    Nothing to do with hooks.
