🔥 @ngrx/entity: The Forgotten Package 🔥 by James Spivey

Are you a daily ngrx user and never heard of entity? That is okay! In this talk we will deep dive into what entity is and why it can help speed up your team. From fighting the ever hated, Boilerplate to speeding up time to market, @ngrx/entity is an invaluable tool that your team should not be without. Simplifying your Stores has never been easier. We will talk about all of its features, what a basic implementation looks like, and gotchas that will get you up to speed quickly on this amazing package dev teams have forgotten.
