Build a Typing Speed Test with React Context

In this video we create a typing test application that captures the typing speed in the form of WPM using the react context api and hooks to manage it's state.

Note: I fail to mention this in the video, but wpm is calculated with the average word being 5 characters.

Most people fall into the range of 30-80 words per minute (WPM). That said, there are plenty of people who can type much faster than that. In fact, world records for typing speed have been set at over 200 WPM. So, where do you fall on the spectrum?
