About this video

Mobile apps are one of the best ways to engage with users - no wonder everyone wants to build one! Wouldn't it be great if you could use your web development knowledge, combined with your React knowledge, to build mobile apps? That's exactly what React Native allows you to do! No need to learn Java, Android, Swift, ObjectiveC or any of that - React and JavaScript is all you need to create awesome native mobile apps that work on both Android and iOS. That's probably the reason why Instagram, AirBnB, Skype and many other global companies are using it to build their mobile apps!

With this course, you can join this league. I'll teach you all you need to know to create your own React Native apps, publish them to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store and dive deep into the React Native ecosystem. You'll learn all about the theory behind React Native, its core concepts, how to build responsive designs that work on different device sizes, how to animate React Native apps, how to navigate around, use maps and the camera and so much more! And what better way to learn than by building a real app? We'll build the "Awesome Places" app in this course, an app where users can share amazing pictures and the location where they took them. This app will allow you to see things like using maps, the camera, user authentication, connecting to a server, and much more in action. By the end of the course, we'll of course also go through all the steps required to get it into an app store.

No Android, Java, Swift or ObjectiveC knowledge is required! JavaScript and React (for the web) knowledge are required though - you don't need to be an expert, but the basics need to be set.

Online Education, Real-Life Success—that's what Academind stands for. Learn topics like web development, data analysis, and more in a fun and engaging way. Maximilian Schwarzmüller - Since the age of 13, Maximilian Schwarzmüller has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In the early days, he started creating websites for friends and for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the back end (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has increasingly become a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer, he had broadened his horizon by studying Business Administration, resulting in a Master's degree. This enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. Whilst learning and developing his skills, he realized that he enjoyed development more than these fields. As a self-taught professional, Max is familiar with the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. His track record is the best proof of that. Whether working as a development instructor or teaching Business Administration, he always receives great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new and better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
