Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Hendrik Swanepoel, and welcome to my course, React Native: Getting Started. I'm a software engineer with loads of experience in React and React Native. Over the last few years, I've worked on several React Native apps in all kinds of industries from golfing to banking. In this course, we're going to get you familiarized with React Native, putting you in a good position to start building slick mobile apps for both iOS and Android. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include setting up your environment for building React Native apps, running and debugging an app on your device, using and styling React Native components. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create a React Native app from scratch. You'll be able to navigate the React Native Docs in order to pick and use the correct components for your app. You'll know how to style components, and you'll know how to bind components to data from an HTTP API. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of React, Git, the command line, and npm. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn React Native.
