We chat with a Platform Engineer and Reality Labs Advocate about the expanding toolkit available for crafting virtual reality experiences.
The home team discusses React’s major version upgrade, how women in software engineering are often shunted into marketing or project management roles, and the brilliant analogy Cassidy used to explain to her parents how software engineers still have jobs after they’re done building the app.
Originally, React mainly used class components, which can be strenuous at times as you always had to switch between classes, higher-order components, and render props. With React hooks, you can now do all these without switching, using functional components.
