Furthermore, these apps run natively and can be deployed to the Apple AppStore or the Google Play store, not web apps that run in some adapter or translator. So they're faster and more reliable.
In this React Native Training course you'll learn to use React Native to create cross-platform native apps quickly and easily with a 50/50 mix of lecture and real-world labs. You'll start from scratch and build up to a comprehensive app which uses modern techniques and best practices to consume RESTful data from a NodeJS/Express server and present it to the user in a multi-screen, interactive app.
Upon completion of this React Native Training course, the student should be able to:
• Create cross-platform iOS and Android apps
• Set up a device emulator on your laptop and deploy apps to it
• Use expo to create and run iOS and Android apps
• Explain the architecture of a device app
• Apply the most useful React Native components
• Write app code that works differently on the different platforms
• Use flexbox on devices to control the layout of your apps
• Style your app efficiently using best practices
• Use stack navigators, drawer navigators and tab navigators to change app scenes
• Consume RESTful data in a handheld device and present it to the user
Seasoned developers who want to create iOS and Android apps.
