Build WhatsApp mobile app in a day with React Native

React Native since it was released forever changed the face of mobile development. Building mobile apps with JavaScript is not a new idea, but React Native changed how it can be done. Instead of running JavaScript apps in containers which could not ever compare to native ones, React Native is about building apps with JavaScript, but getting performance of real mobile apps. That happens due to the fact that actual code that runs on device is Objective-C or Java and alternatively Swift and Kotlin.

In this hands-on workshop targeted for web and mobile developers we will cover basics of React Native development and you will see how easily can we build chat application similar to WhatsApp in both design and functionality. You will be amazed how fast you can develop applications in React Native for both iOS and Android due to amazing developer experience it offers.
