On this episode of React Wednesdays, we welcomed Jeremy Ward (@basicBrogrammer), author of When a simple React context gets out of hand
Contexts are one of the fundamental building blocks of React apps, and they’re one of those features that starts simple—just create a context and provider, right?—but can get out of hand in complex applications.
Jeremy showed us techniques for working with contexts at scale, and demoed the guidelines from his blog post!

If you’re like me, you love using TypeScript in your React apps, but you get confused on how you’re supposed to use types once you get beyond the basics.
But good news! On this episode of React Wednesdays we welcomed in Stefan Baumgartner (@ddprrt), author of TypeScript in 50 Lessons, who taught us some advanced features of TypeScript’s type system, especially around working with dynamic static typing.
This is a great one to check out if you like TypeScript and want to learn how to use it more effectively in your React apps.
