Creating a custom form handler with hooks
What do you do when your new application is just a bunch of forms? Well, in the past you'd probably use a library, but now you can lean on react hooks and create a custom form handler! This talk will be a walkthrough of how to use hooks to create a reusable form handler with testable, customisable validation and minimal dependencies. We'll work through some code samples as well as pains and successes of using this method in a real-world, form-filled application.
