Power Up Your M365 Development Game: Embracing React Functional Components and Hooks

Session Abstract

Level 200. While Class Components have long been the go-to project type in SPFx and Teams React solutions, a new, arguably better alternative has emerged in ReactJS. Many developers now swear by Functional Components and Hooks as a simpler, more readable way to code projects. In this session, we'll delve into the advantages and considerations of both approaches, unveiling the power of Functional Components. We'll guide you through the transition from Class Components, making your code cleaner and more comprehensible. Plus, we'll explore the array of hooks available to add that extra sizzle to your solutions. Get ready to take your SPFx and Teams projects to the next level!
