React Native allows developers to reuse components from one user interface on multiple platforms. React Native was introduced by Facebook to reduce the pain of teams who were rewriting their user interfaces for web, iOS, and Android.
Nader Dabit hosts React Native Radio, a podcast about React Native. Nader also trains companies to use React Native through his company React Native Training. In this episode, we explore what a developer can and cannot do with React Native, when a developer needs to use native APIs, and some speculation on the future of React Native.
This episode is a good preface for tomorrow’s episode about React Native Interfaces with Leland Richardson of Airbnb. In that episode we will dive deeper into how React Native works and just how big of a change it could be for cross-platform developers.
