Discussion on: 💜 A collection to learn React Hooks! 🎣

Maybe my comment has no place here, but as someone that's learning react and has never dealt with hooks previously I would have loved if the first video would have answered the "what are hooks?" question before dealing the reasons behind the "why hooks?".

P.S. Sometimes newcomers (myself included) use "elements" (i.e. hooks) without even bothering to label 'em. As a result, one might be familiar with hooks without even knowing.

Nice, yes makes sense!

The first video kind of covers that. I actually changed the name because I got so much stick over calling it an intro to hooks. Maybe I didn't do a good enough explanation on the "what".

This is great feedback so thank you! 💜
