## The Talk

Like React Native? Hate managing native build systems and just want to focus on writing your app in JavaScript? Expo might be for you! Jacob will give a quick overview of Expo, how it works, why it's pretty sweet (mainly the ability to update code in seconds, not days, in a mobile app) and why it's been the platform of choice for the last 3 of the mobile apps he's worked on. Together they have garnered literally thousands of downloads.
