Join Alex Banks for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Building a Polling App with Socket IO and React.js.
- Thank you for joining me for…creating a polling app with Socket IO and React.…I hope you've enjoyed this course.…Now that we've put together a full fledged…polling application you may be wondering where…to go from here.…The next iterations that are worthwhile to consider…with this app have to do with performance and security.…If you're interested in taking those steps on your…own you could improve Socket security by looking…into Socket IO namespaces as well as…Socket Authorization.…If you are interested in improving the performance…of your React UI there is no better step…than to integrate the shouldComponentUpdate()…lifecycle function.…
To learn more about React I recommend…taking a look at the React documentation.…It's really an excellent resource for sharpening…your React skills.…The React/Router also has great documentation.…You can take a look at their docs…to see how to do more complex routing as well…as how to incorporate routing variables.…Finally, socket.io has great documentation as well…and it's worthwhile to take a dive into these…
