The presentation comes with fairly extensive speaker notes (keyboard shortcut: S or gear icon -> Open speaker notes).
I’m a big fan of React, and I’ve been using it for years. But hooks are an abomination; they’re so wrong in so many ways, and I much prefer the Svelte approach or normal JS classes.
I have an interest in using Svelte but I don’t have a use case at the moment. I am, however, in the middle of another React build. React’s ease of use and community make it much easier to get into than Svelte, and this is coming from someone who used to use (and still misses) Mithril.
