React Native - The Practical Guide 
What you'll learn
- Learn how to use ReactJS to build real native mobile apps for iOS and Android
- Develop cross-platform (iOS and Android) mobile apps without knowing Swift, ObjectiveC or Java/ Android
- Explore React Native basics and advanced features!
- Learn how to use key mobile app features like Google maps or the device camera
- React knowledge is a must (but you absolutely DON'T have to be an expert)
- NO Android/ Java or iOS (Swift, ObjectiveC) development experience is required
This course was updated (completely re-recorded) in April 2022 - you learn the latest version of React Native with this course!
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 with that?
That's exactly what React Native allows you to do!
With this course, you can join this league. I'll teach you all you need to create your own React Native apps, publish them to the Google Play Store and Apple App Store and dive really 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 navigate around, use maps and the camera and so much more!
And which better way to learn than by building a real app? We'll build the "Favorite 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 steps required to get it into an app store.
Here's a detailed look at what you'll get:
The core concepts and theory
Understand how to navigate in React Native apps
A closer look at styling and animating React Native apps
Instructions on how to use third-party libraries in your React Native app
Detailed examples on how to use maps or an image picker
A full user authentication flow
How to connect to a backend server from your app
And so much more!
What will you need to succeed in this course?
NO Android, Java, Swift or ObjectiveC knowledge is required!
I'd be very happy to welcome you in the course!
Who this course is for:
- Anyone who wants to use React to build native mobile apps
- Every mobile developer who wishes to learn only one language to write cross-platform mobile apps

Experience as (Web) Developer
Starting out at the age of 12 I never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. Early I started creating websites for friends and just for fun as well. Besides web development I also explored Python and other non-web-only languages. This passion has since lasted and lead to my decision of working as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun I have in this job is immense and really keeps that passion burningly alive.
Starting web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel, NodeJS, Python) I also became more and more of a frontend developer using modern frameworks like React, Angular or VueJS in a lot of projects. I love both worlds nowadays!
I also build full-stack applications and acquired expert DevOps and cloud computing knowledge - proven by the many AWS certifications I hold (incl. the top-level Solutions Architect Professional certification).
As a self-taught developer I had the chance to broaden my horizon by studying Business Administration where I hold a Master's degree. That enabled me to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. While learning, that I enjoy development more than these fields, the time in this sector greatly improved my overall experience and skills.
Experience as Instructor
As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enables me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses and more than 2,000,000 students on Udemy is the best proof for that.
Whether working as development instructor or teaching Business Administration I always received great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.
Together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience to our more than 2,000,000 students.
