Course Summary

React Native is a framework for using Javascript and React to create native mobile applications. With React Native, you get the best of both worlds. It combines the intuitive, declarative structure of React with the performance, look, and feel of Native applications. React Native also has the potential to alter how developer teams are structured, allowing web, iOS, and Android teams to share knowledge, resources, and even code.

The Build Mobile Apps with React Native training course will guide developers through the entire React Native development process. From setting up their development environments all the way to deploying an app to the app/play store. Along the way developers will learn how to work with many of the core React Native components and API’s, as well as best practices for file structure, styling, and more.


Developers who have some experience with React and are ready to leverage those skills to build robust, production-level mobile applications.
