React native FOR SENIOR DEVELOPERS
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.
