Building applications for the modern web can be complicated and there are so many different approaches out there. Everyone seems to be talking about using NgRx to solve all of their problems, but maybe I'm not ready for that. The idea of writing actions, reducers, effects, and selectors seems like too much work for me right now; there has to be some middle ground that I can start with!

We will be diving into an alternative approach to using NgRx for developing applications, while understanding concepts that can be applied later to such patterns. We will talk about how to design our components using a container and presenter pattern to help us maximize component reuse, while reducing complexity. We will also explore the service with a subject pattern that will allow us to reuse data between components. We will wrap it all up in our demo application that will show you how to bring it all together and apply this to your next project or refactor your existing one.
