This course is for you if you …

  • … are looking for new ways to manage state in React.
  • … want to learn more about MobX.
  • … already know something about MobX, but you feel that something is missing.

This course contains two implementation examples for state management in React using MobX and other solutions.

After this course, I want you to be able to plan application state in React. For that, we need to look at more complete examples. So, instead of merely learning when to use MobX you will also learn when not to use it and what to use instead. This is important to understand where MobX has its place in the React ecosystem.

I want to enable you to think differently about state and how to manage it. This course is more than just another tutorial on MobX. It is a practical guide to state management. I will tell you about common implementation errors in MobX and how to overcome them.

On top of all that, we will also take a look at how to debug and test state in React.

To sum up, after taking this course you will learn about the following things:

  • When and how to manage state in React.
  • How MobX works behind the scenes.
  • Understand and use the MobX core API (observables, actions, computeds, and reactions).
  • Connect MobX with the React Context API.
  • Understand and debug performance issues.
  • Testing stores.

You can download all the code examples and additional resources, like a cheat sheet for MobX.
