21. & 22.4.2018




Code in the Woods senior sprints are two-day learning experiences for already more experienced senior developers. In April 21. & 22.4.2018 participants had the chance to learn the best practices of React Native with talented Code in the Woods mentor Andre Staltz. The focus was on practical skill development. Andre has experience with both native mobile development and React Native, and he was able explain why he and many others nowadays prefer React Native to get things done.



The sessions were held on Saturday and Sunday 21st and 22nd of April from 10am to 17pm at Barona Technologies office, Helsinki city center. During the weekend the participants got to build iOS and Android apps using React Native. The curriculum was balanced with light breakfast, lunch in the middle and pizza and beer after the day ends. The coaching was free for the accepted participants and the used language was English.


On the first day, participants learned how React Native is a viable alternative to native mobile development, how to get started with it, and how to build your first app. Andre Staltz taught the content and mentored during coding sessions. On the second day, participants learned several important APIs and tools to help building your app, such as basic UI components, styling, debugging, network, so that by the end of the day we had created a real mobile app that you could use daily.

Andre Staltz has experience professionally developing mobile apps, building open source libraries (for JavaScript and React Native), as well as teaching programming in conferences and workshops in dozens of occasions around Europe. His current primary software project is a React Native one. Andre believes he won't disappoint you in sharing what he has learned about React Native so far.

WHO and how?

We invited selected 25 Professional software developers, who wanted to get to know React Native in a coding party type of setting. Participants had some experience with JavaScript (in particular, some React skills, but not much was required to know) and wanted to use their knowledge to create mobile apps.
