No Redux in Next.js 13 course

Is there a need for Redux when using Next and React and if so, why isn’t it included in the new Next.js 13 course?

There is a React Query instead of Redux.

Redux is used in applications with client-side state. When using Next.js, we move most of the state to the server and the client has very little state to maintain. So, Redux is not needed in Next.js apps. Also, it’s been overused in most React.js apps and the result is overly complex applications with terrible, unmaintainable code. Stay away from it. If you really need a state management solution on the client, go for Zustand.
