What we're about

React Native Creative is for React Native developers and anyone interested in learning the framework.

We have events every two months to meet other React Native developers, learn from each other on challenging topics--such as upgrading (angry face) , help each other and have a couple beers/dinner while we're at it

Our first event will be hosted September 10th 2019 at a local development agency downtown and they've been kind enough to provide pizza and beer for everyone!

Formerly Toronto React Native Meetup.
