Quick bits:

  • The New Stack has profiled a company that's built a ML-powered multilingual customer support system that can cope with 'industry specific jargon' and is built on React atop Java.

  • A React developer with eight years experience (almost as long as React has existed) shares how he writes React after eight years. Is it contrarian and highly opinionated? Absolutely.

Another State Management Solution for React? Providence! — Newsflash: Another state management library has rolled into town :-) And this one is “better”.. Curiously, it’s built on top of Redux, too, keeping many of Redux’s advantages while claiming to reduce the amount of “fighting” you need to do to make things work. You be the judge.
