Mobile Application Development with React Native

JavaScript Web

In this course you'll learn how to leverage the power of JavaScript and React to build fully fledged native mobile applications for iOS and Android.
React Native enables you to build multi-platform mobile applications with JavaScript, using the same approach as you would when building applications for the web - it's «learn once, write anywhere»!

Learn how to:

  • «Think in React»
  • Build composable component based views
  • Manage state using pure functions
  • Manage control flow to make you application do what you want, when you want it
  • Communicate with your backend and APIs
  • Use native device functionality
  • Leverage new React features like hooks and context to simplify your application
  • Deploy your application

Some of the tech we'll use:

  • react-native
  • redux / redux-thunk
  • axios
