Dive into the fundamentals of React Native, from initializing applications to exploring native libraries, and discuss intermediate topics to help React developers transition seamlessly into mobile development.

Overview

This hands-on workshop will go through the fundamentals of React Native from "init-ing" our application to getting our app to look good to digging into native libraries. It will wrap up with a discussion on more "intermediate" topics and address any questions the class may have. The objective of this workshop is to help React developers take the plunge into mobile and show the similarities between the two platforms.

What you'll learn
How to create a production-ready React Native app from the ground up
Best practices of React Native navigation, data fetching, and interactivity
Techniques for styling and polishing your app to ensure it looks and feels great

Hi I'm Justin! (aka JP) I live near the beach in Wilmington, NC with my wife, our 11-month-old baby, and our chocolate lab. I've been building React Native apps professionally since 2015. When I'm not coding, you can find me tossing pizza dough, in my rally racing sim rig, or crafting something cool out of wood.
