About this video

React has taken the web development world by storm, and it is only natural that its unique architecture and third-party support ecosystem should be applied to native application development. Using JavaScript, you can build a truly native application that renders native UI components and accesses native device functionality.

In this video, we start with a look at state management and how to keep your code usable by other developers, how to build for your ideal user, how to create animations that pop, and how to publish your apps to the App Store. With the core UI built, we can take off our designer hats and focus on creating code that is clean and easy to reuse.

By the end of the course, you will have created your own application using React Native and learned to publish your app in the App Store and PlayStore.

Style and Approach

This course is packed with step-by-step instructions on how to create impressive applications using React Native, and is split into clear components so that you can learn at your own pace and concentrate on what interests you the most.

About the Author

  • Álvaro Medina Ballester

    Alvaro is a professional React Native developer with an interest in mobile technology, server-side API development, and iOS development. He plays bass in a rock band, and he enjoys road bikes and politics.

    The first thing he started programming was little buy scripts for Counter Strike. These were small hacks to buy faster and pick up all the necessary equipment. A few years later, he went to the University of Balearic Islands to study computer science. There he began to learn the fundamentals of computer programming using Ada, C, and Java. After finishing his B.Sc. in Computer Science, he started his M.Sc. That was when he started to do really fun things such as games in Lisp, creating a compiler of a subset of Ada instructions, and computer vision with OpenCV, among others.

    Before finishing his M.Sc, he started to work full-time, first as a developer for the hotels team at Logitravel (the second tourism dot com in Spain) and currently as an iOS developer at mola.com. He had no previous iOS or mobile development experience before entering mola.com, but he successfully managed to develop both serverside and mobile apps for a social network called Hoods. He also helped the awesome team at Mola in several other projects (Matchball, Zoco).

    Right now he is a mobile developer at APSL—Advanced Programming Solutions—and works on several products.
