re: React hooks: get the current state, back to the future VIEW POST


I have been writing OO code in Java for nearly three decades, I have been writing functional code for about three months now so excuse me if this sounds like I'm just ignorant of a few things. My first question is, isn't it functional programming's goal to not maintain state information between method calls? Second is, if you combine this with TypeScript, don't you now just have plain ol' Java again?
