Ehh... sort of. Hooks are cool and solve a lot of problems and frustrations people have had with class components, but class components are here to stay, at least for now. It's very likely that any developer working on a codebase that existed before hooks were released will be dealing with class components, so it's still important to understand how state works with class components.

Just for you, I wrote a similar article now, but this time with function components and the useState hook. ;)
