Beginning iOS Development with React Native

Sunday, March 13
11:00AM - 3:00PM

JW Marriott
Salon B
110 E 2nd St

Using React Native, you can build native applications using the JavaScript language, development workflow, and toolkit you already know and love. In this workshop, we’ll guide you through the development of your very first iOS app using just your existing knowledge of JavaScript.
First we’ll discuss the fundamentals of React Native. What is it? How does it work?
Next we’ll provide a quick primer on building user interfaces with React.
Then, together, we’ll build our very own iOS app. We'll cover everything, from setup, to built-in iOS UI elements, to styling, all the way to how to extend React Native when you need to.

Be sure to bring a Mac with the latest version of Xcode installed!
