Building Cross-Platform APIs with React Native

React Native has been a powerful tool in building user interfaces across different mobile platforms.  Designing good APIs for native features that are similar, but operate just slightly differently across those platforms, though, can be difficult.  We'll talk about best practices for building clean yet flexible APIs for React Native libraries, using in-app purchases as an example.

2. Featured Talk: 

Leland Richardson, @intelligibabble, Software Engineer at Airbnb

Bridging the Gap: How to use React Native in existing large native code bases

React Native is a powerful new way to develop mobile apps.  It is somewhat daunting, however, to figure out how to introduce React Native into a large existing iOS and Android code base, especially at an organization with existing teams of mobile engineers with little to no JavaScript or React background. Can React Native work for companies in this situation? Leland will talk about how Airbnb got over these hurdles and what you can do to do the same.

If you are interested in giving a talk or sponsoring our events, please contact the organizers.
