Michael Chan of the React Podcast discusses React, a front end JavaScript framework.  Host Jeremy Jung spoke with Chan about what React is, when to introduce it, and how to learn it without being overwhelmed.  Michael explains how JSX combines JavaScript and HTML-like markup to build components and how it decides how to automatically manipulate the DOM. He shares how his team introduced React by adding it to a single page in an existing application.  He details how companies can build their own set of reusable components and how to design flexible APIs for them. Finally, he gives resources for getting started and reveals why the Hooks API has made many past tutorials and patterns obsolete.
