React to React Native: How Hard Could It Be? - Kylie Stewart

So you know React, and now you want to build mobile interfaces for the same users. React Native shouldn't be too hard to ramp up with, given your existing React knowledge... right? You might be surprised to hear there are a few hurdles you'll need to jump through to get up and running.

Kylie Stewart is a software engineer and open source maintainer at Formidable. When she isn't behind a screen, Kylie spends her time climbing and hiking Colorado with her dog, Otis.
