Building a Mobile App with React Native and Node.js

Hannah ThompsonPart of DW17

React Native and Node.js allow us to take javascript out of the browser and use it to create real, native mobile apps. This talk is a walkthrough of pre-prepared code to demonstrate how these technologies can be used to used to create a simple iOS app. It will introduce the audience to some key concepts and give them a better understanding of what goes into creating a mobile app with React. It would also be of interest to people looking to use React for web apps.

Hannah spent two years teaching herself to code before taking the plunge, quitting her job and taking the first half of 2017 to do nothing but study Ruby and Javascript stacks for web development in a Diploma of Software Development. In her spare time she’s a regular at Sydney Women in Tech meetups, an Arduino tinkerer and an avid puppy spotter.
