Why React.js

Over the weekend I was at Dev Center‘s Round Table (free wine + meet other devs) and I got into a discussion with Tunde from Andela about why I don’t like Angular.

The crux of my argument was Angular’s not necessarily solving the hard parts of building for the browser; they give their flavor of things that help but they don’t address the real problems developers face working in the browser.

On Sunday morning Quora asked me if I could answer a question about the most elegant solution on ToDoMVC.

Both questions boil down to “Why do I pick React.js over front-end frameworks?”

I wrote a pretty in-depth answer on Quora which the question author liked and thanked me for.
