Discussion on: What were your "gotchas" when first learning React?

I'm currently building my first react app, a guess the number game. I'm not yet able to finish it because of the following:

  1. setState is asynchronous. I don't know how to use the states after the components update to update another state without going into the loop
  2. Using forms in react
  3. Handling events

These are the basic issues that I'm working on. I'm a newbie in webdev in general.
