Talk 1

Nikhilesh Sigatapu, Software Developer at Exponent

Embedding a Lua-based game engine into a React Native app.

The talk will be about how to embed a Lua game engine, known as LÖVE ( into a React Native application.

Embedding LÖVE into your React Native application allows you to leverage features such as its high-performance graphics, native physics engine, UDP / ENet networking libraries for multiplayer.

In the past Nikhilesh has worked on Expo's React Native GL library.

Talk 2

Connor McEwen, Mobile Lead - Celo ( )

Working with Blockchains in React Native.

React Native's use of JavaScript not only enables cross-platform applications but also gives developers access to tooling that may only exist in JavaScript. This talk will cover the tools, libraries, forking, and lessons learned in building a mobile application that talks to a blockchain.

Connor has been using React Native since the beta came out and currently leads the Applications team working on Celo. Celo aims to make financial tools accessible to anyone with a mobile phone.
