JS Party

Nick's big rewrite

Nick rewrote our JS Danger game board app from Dojo to React for his talk at React Global Online Summit about componentizing application state with React and XState.

On this episode Jerod, KBall, and Feross chat with Nick about the entire process and what he learned along the way. Oh, we also play an epic round of Pro Tip Time!
