  1. Pretty informative article on refs. I would suggest you update the article about creating refs with hooks, since its available with React 16.8.6 and above.

    1. Hi Abid,
      Thanks for pointing that out! We’ve updated the article to include information about refs with hooks.

  2. Definitely the most analytical and comprehensive article on this topic I’ve seen. The introduction provided just enough context to understand the bigger picture and the comparison with its alternative was very detailed and well-illustrated! Also, the inclusion of the different versions of refs, including the deprecated one, is much appreciated considering how fast the library changes.This should be the standard of writing technical articles!
