React Native Meetup

*** SPEAKERS ***

1. Viktor Marohnic - On the Making of “Shoutem”

How and why we created an open source React Native UI toolkit that should enable people to create great looking apps with ease. I'll give an overview of reusable UI components, themes and animation library that comes in a package.

About Viktor:

I'm a founder and a CEO of two companies in mobile app development space. Five is a NYC/Zagreb based mobile development agency with 130+ people serving US based clients such as Rhapsody, Random House, Squarespace, Roseta Stone, Real Networks. Shoutem is a CMS for native mobile apps with 5000+ apps released to the app store up to date

2. Tom Goldenberg - Getting Started with React Native

Tom is an author of the tutorial Build React Native (, and a web and mobile engineer at Agolo.  In this talk, he'll explain how he became involved with React Native and demo how to get started, drawing from examples in the Build React Native tutorial.

3. Connor McEwen - Flare in Production: A Year with React Native

My team started building Flare from scratch in React Native a year ago. Since then, we've launched on both iOS and Android, been featured in both the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, and built a team developing a RN mobile client, React web application, and Node backend. I'll share what it actually means to be cross platform, how to deal with updates, some tips on how to structure your team and development workflow, and of course demo Flare.

Connor McEwen is the Lead Engineer on the Emerging Products team at GoDaddy. He's worked both on the web and in native mobile development previously, but now spends his time happily reacting to JS fatigue.

*** Note ***  RSVP's open 14 days before the event.

    Building was beautiful but guards were unhelpful. Building is too long a walk from subway for me. Presentations were great.
