A lot of interest was generated and so we did our first live coding pairing session that was streamed on doingdevfordev.com. It was with DEV community member Sophia Li.
She worked on the <ImageUploader /> Preact component in the DEV/forem codebase. It was originally a class component that she converted to a function component using the useState hook.
For the full recording of the pairing session check out the YouTube video below. Also, feel free to subscribe to my channel. 😉
Near the end of the pairing session we discussed the possibility of using the useReducer hook instead. After the pairing session, Sophia continued working on the PR she created and implemented the necessary changes to use the useReducer hook.
