  • Just use children
    No, this isn't a post about child labour. It's a post about using children as props. Wait that doesn't sound right either. It's about writing good components, okay?
  • Shotgun surgery and React components
    Firing changes in too many places and crossing your fingers isn't the best strategy. Here's a better one. This is a follow up of last week's post with implementation details.
  • Give names to behaviors not interactions
    Naming event handlers is easy, until you put all your components together.
