iOS August Meetup

August 19, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Holy moly iOS devs, this year is flying by! This month we have Scott Crespo lined up to talk about a super hip and trendy Facebook JS framework called React.

“I heard react is good.”

Scott will share his experiences building native applications using React and will be available for a QA to answer any questions you throw at him (or attempt to). We’re looking to get the Javascript community involved with this meetup as well, so it should be a great event!

More details can be found below, and we look forward to seeing you all this Wednesday.

React Native – Develop Native iOS Apps with Javascript

React Native is a new, open-source Javascript Framework created by Facebook to build native iOS applications. In a nutshell, React Native is a Javascript API to Native iOS Components, which allows developers to build responsive and smooth applications without writing in Objective C.

With React Native, web developers can build mobile apps using a familiar language and programming paradigm. And for iOS veterans, it’s easy to extend React Native’s core capabilities by adding native views and modules.

Scott Crespo will present the core concepts behind React Native, advantages and disadvantages, and fundamental design patterns. He’ll share his experiences and lessons learned from developing and deploying React Native Applications for large enterprise clients in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.

The Presenter:

Scott Crespo is one of the latest additions to the Topps Company’s new mobile gaming studio in Orlando FL. Topps is the popular sports trading card company that has exploded in mobile gaming with apps that allow you to collect and earn points in real-time based on how your players perform in the real world.
