React Native Intro Workshop for iOS and Android

Learn how to use JavaScript to build high-quality, performant applications for iOS and Android with React Native! This three-hour workshop introduces the React Native, a framework for writing cross-platform applications using JavaScript. Mobile components, styling, and native APIs such as local storage are discussed, and participants will build a simple weather forecast application for iOS and Android. Additionally, we'll discuss the foundational concepts that make React Native work, and how it differs from other cross-platform solutions. The workshop assumes some prior familiarity with React and JavaScript, and requires a working developer environment. Attendees with previous mobile experience and ability to read JavaScript are also welcome. Pre-attendance instructions will be provided.
