Discussion on: Trouble with useEffect running every render? `useEffectRef` to the rescue!

I love the post as an explanation of how useEffect and useRef work, but I agree with Alex. Seeing useCallback is less confusing.

Yes, the explanation is very nice and a lot of aspects are covered. Also, the warning about not to overuse this technique is cool. However I'm afraid it may encourage people to do so, and IMO there's no reason to do that at all.
