Description

In this course, you'll learn how to use your existing JavaScript skills to build native apps for iOS and Android. You don't even need to be a React expert to follow along! You'll learn how to get going with React Native with minimum development setup as we'll be using Exponent to help us get going very quickly. After building most of the app through Exponent, we'll move into a full-blown environment where you'll learn how to do platform targeting: building special features specifically for a specific platform while trying to achieve as much code reuse as possible. We also introduce Redux to the mix to help us encapsulate our state management in a very elegant manner. This course (and React Native) relies heavily on JavaScript 2015 features!

Hi everyone, my name is Hendrik Swanepoel and welcome to my course Build Cross Platform React Native Apps with Exponent and Redux.I am a full stack developer and the technical lead at 22seven, a fintech company in Cape Town, South Africa.

There’s no denying it anymore, React is here to stay! So it just makes so much sense to use the same technology to target the web, iOS, and Android using the same skillset! In this course, we’re going to cover:

  1. Using Exponent to get started quickly
  2. Various React Native Components
  3. Platform Targeting
  4. State Management with Redux
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to build cross platform React Native apps, building specific features for specific platforms, while achieving as much code reuse as possible.Before beginning the course you should be familiar with JavaScript. A little bit of experience in React would also be useful. I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn React Native with the Build Cross Platform React Native Apps with Exponent and Redux course, at Pluralsight.
