Re... ducks?

  • reducer = (state, action) => state
  • react-redux
    • inject state and action creators as props
    • when state changes, re-render
const ADD_TODO = 'ADD_TODO'
{
  type: ADD_TODO,
  text: 'Create example action for talk'
}
// a typical redux action

Write a book on Redux!

We’re looking for an author to write Redux Cookbook.

 

Would you be interested in collaborating with us for this book project?

Re: Write a book on Redux!

Yeah, sure!

Writing the outline...

Editorial board outline feedback

So I presented the outline to our publisher, who gives the final approval on the outline.

 

The publisher liked your outline and feels your style is best suited for a tutorial book, Learning Redux.

Legal stuff...

Writing the book...

Editing process...

Published!!!

What I learned...

Learning 1

there is a lot that you don't know...

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

(Albert Einstein)

...well enough to explain

Learning 2

there are many ways to approach a problem...

...find the best way to explain a concept

...but, keep it easy to understand

Learning 3

deadlines are important...

...especially when they are enforced

work per day

thesis assigned

thesis due

Learning 4

editing process is tough, but useful...

...it makes the book consistent

there are many people involved...

...so you have to make compromises

...and be receptive to feedback

Learning 5

use a good tool!

first I used Word...

I use LaTeX for my thesis...

:(

then I used the publisher's webapp...
