I could definitely agree - redux is overused and usually not needed. You have to have some complex situations or conditions, which could be easily resolved in “redux way”, not the “component way”, and you may be lucky not to face such situations ever.
But it worth to understand, as long redux and react are based on the same immutable data structures ideology, and they helps to understand each other.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
