Next -Level React: Explore Step-by-Step How to Build Test & Publish React Native Applications

TT4199

Intermediate

5 Days

Course Overview

React Native is used by organizations worldwide to create cross-platform phone/tablet apps with one code base. This means that you can write code easily that will run on iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets without having to rewrite it in two or more languages -- just one. And that one language is easy to learn if you know React and JavaScript because it is React and JavaScript! 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.

Mastering React Native is a hands-on, intermediate and beyond level web development course geared for experienced React developers who need to build and design applications using React Native. Throughout the course you’ll explore the core APIs and Components, applying these skills to the course case study project to create a React Native app in class. 

This course combines expert lecture, real-world demonstrations and group discussions with machine-based practical labs and exercises.  Working in a hands-on learning environment led by our expert instructor, you'll explore:

  • React Native: An Introduction
  • Getting to Know React Native
  • Core Components in Depth
  • Core APIs
  • Navigation 
  • Testing
  • Native Modules
  • Building and publishing (IOA and Android)
