Full Day Workshop
React Native Fundamentals

We will start with a simple overview of the React philosophy, align everyone to get started, and then adventure into building an actual application. The application we start in this workshop has days worth of material to carry you into the future of your React Native career. We cover as much as we can, a high-level Q&A, and especially emphasize the core steps of each process, from our experience as software consultants in React Native. By the end of our workshop, you will have a strong foundation of React Native concepts, and be ready to make progress on a production app, as many of our past students have.

Workshop prerequisites:

  • Basic JavaScript knowledge

Testing in React Native
Are you satisfied with your test suites? If you said no, you’re not alone—most developers aren’t. Maybe your React Native app doesn’t have any tests. Or maybe the ones you have never help you but only take extra time to maintain. Maybe you’ve tried to improve your test suite but your efforts don’t seem to be making a difference. In this workshop you’ll learn the tools, techniques, and principles you need to implement low-cost, high-value tests in your React Native app. This will allow you to get the full benefit of React Native’s speed of iteration, so you can ship new features frequently and confidently. 


Workshop prerequisites: 

  • Familiarity with building and running React Native apps using React Native CLI

  • No testing experience required

Building an AR store app in one day
AR is really popular these days and you might have seen one or two tutorials on how to develop an AR app or maybe you've seen a bunch of AR apps in AppStore or Google Play. But lots of apps out there are not going beyond a simple demo or a casual game. That's not always the case. Lots of businesses recognize AR potential for commercial apps. How do you start creating this kind of experience in React Native? In this workshop we will learn how to develop an AR store app from the planning phase to implementation. This workshop is targeted towards experienced React Native developers that have at least basic understanding of GraphQL and that want to expand their horizons further to the AR field, which is constantly growing.

Workshop prerequisites:

  • React Native experience

  • Basic GraphQL knowledge

  • AR capable iOS or Android phone. (In case of developing for iOS, preferably apple developer account so you will be able to debug on your phone)

  • Good mood (we will be walking a lot around the room, putting AR objects in real world)

Advanced WORKSHOP & Conference Ticket: $999
