Description: In the presentation I would like to go through what the developer experience is migrating from native iOS to React Native. I aim at making it easy for someone to set up an environment and start working after the presentation. Everything with the perspective of an iOS engineer. The topics I will go through are:
1. Overview of how React Native works
2. Overview of development tools needed for React Native projects
3. Major dependencies used in React Native projects
4. Structure of an RN project
5. How to use Xcode + Android Studio along with the React Native project
6. What is Native Bridging and how to use it (example)
Next there should be a free discussion on what was presented and on the developer experience in total.
