About the Technology
React Hooks promise to make React programmers even more productive. Hooks are a collection of pre-built and custom functions that give you a simpler API for working with key React functionalities.

These new features represent a fundamental evolution in how the React library functions, so even experienced React developers will want to get up to speed with Hooks.
