React Native The Practical Guide
Use React Native and your React knowledge to build native iOS and Android Apps - incl. Push Notifications, Hooks, Redux
- Dive deeper into React Native
- Develop cross-platform (iOS and Android) mobile apps without knowing Swift
- ObjectiveC or Java/ Android
What you'll learn
* Requirements* React knowledge is a must (but you absolutely DON'T have to be an expert)
* NO Android/ Java or iOS (Swift
* ObjectiveC) development experience is required
Mobile apps are one of the best ways to engage with users - no wonder everyone wants to build one!
Wouldn't it be great if you could use your web development knowledge, combined with your React knowledge, to build mobile apps with that?
That's exactly what React Native allows you to do!
With this course, you can join this league. I'll teach you all you need to create your own React Native apps, publish them to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store and dive really deep into the React Native ecosystem.
You'll learn all about the theory behind React Native, its core concepts, how to build responsive designs that work on different device sizes, how to navigate around, use maps and the camera and so much more!
And which better way to learn than by building a real app? We'll build the "Awesome Places" app in this course, an app where users can share amazing pictures and the location where they took them. This app will allow you to see things like using maps, the camera, user authentication, connecting to a server and much more in action.
By the end of the course, we'll of course also go through all steps required to get it into an app store.
Here's a detailed look at what you'll get:
The core concepts and theory
Understand how to navigate in React Native apps
A closer look at styling and animating React Native apps
Instructions on how to use third-party libraries in your React Native app
Detailed examples on how to use maps or an image picker
A full user authentication flow
How to connect to a backend server from your app
And so much more!
What will you need to succeed in this course?
NO Android, Java, Swift or ObjectiveC knowledge is required!
I'd be very happy to welcome you in the course!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to use React to build native mobile apps
- Every mobile developer who wishes to learn only one language to write cross-platform mobile apps
