Join us for a Meetup at ClassPass!

This meetup will include a presentation on React Native followed by questions and then time to socialize with snacks and drinks.

Abstract:
In the last year React Native has received a lot of bad press, notably from Airbnb's decision to move away from React Native. At ClassPass we have a successful app used by hundreds of thousands of people around the world that is a hybrid of old native code (Swift, ObjC, Java and Kotlin) and new React Native code. This talk will walk through some of the lessons we've learned from introducing React Native into our codebase, and will help you learn from our triumphs — and mistakes — and ultimately evaluate whether the technology is a good fit for your product and team.

About the speaker:
Neil Kimmett is a mobile developer who has worked for a range of small startups and large brands across London, New York and San Francisco. Currently he works at ClassPass in NYC where the emphasis is trying to help people live healthier, more fulfilling lives.
