"Drawing the Invisible: React Explained in Five Visual Metaphors" is one of my conference talks about the importance of visual metaphors in explaining programming concepts.

It's perhaps also known as the 'React is a Potato' talk. Due to the fact potatoes make a rather bold appearance in the middle. 🥔🥔🥔

Here's the debut version of it from the Women of React Conference in 2020

I've since recorded an expanded version you can watch on egghead.
