Last week, we had React Conf 2021 with a plethora of great talks! My favourite talks were React Developer Tooling and React without memo, but there’s a buuunch of great ones in official playlist. I’m also impressed by how the team has gone about Suspense and Concurrent

That’s all for now, have a great week!
Stay kind 💜
