React Native for Designers Part 2

React Native is a popular Javascript framework that builds on top of React by using native components to create a real mobile app indistinguishable from one made using Xcode or Android Studio. The main difference with native development is that you get to use CSS, hot-reload, Javascript and other familiar techniques that the Web has grown over the past decades. Most importantly, you're building for both iOS and Android using the same codebase.

After months of hard work i'm excited to share my new app "Read" which helps you reach your yearly book goal by telling you how many pages or percent to read daily. You can time your read.

My first iOS app is available on the AppStore. I literally didn’t know anything about SwiftUI (still not much) and in probably 4 weeks was able to recreate my android app for iOS. Highly recommend MengTo videos!

Big thanks to you and your DesignCode team. A big help to me. Learning design is just as important as the code that drives it. Built @getNebulaApp, using the SwiftUI courses. Essential for learning iOS and macOS app dev.

Learned a lot from your course to port my app from #AppleWatch to #iPhone, #iPad and #Mac. All SwiftUI, one code base, iCloud, learn words with Widgets.

Manuel Sainsily

Senior UI/UX Designer at IBM

As an old developer, I bought the first version of design+code on its release date, and 1 month after... I literally quit my company. It was such an eye-opener and interactive/comprehensive book, I couldn’t continue to work as before and had an urge for disruption and reinvention. Thanks for being a true lever for my personal career.

If you want to make something beautiful, this is where to start. This is not a programming course, and this is not just a design course. Meng removes that line all together and simply teaches the art of making. From keyboard shortcuts to color theory, this course leaves no stone unturned. Everything you learn here you will use immediately -- there is simply no other course like this.
