• ACA Developer Series: React Native

    Capital Factory

    This month we're touching on React Native, a powerful mobile development tool. This technology solves the problem of companies needing a mobile developer for iOS and a mobile developer for Andriod, since it is used across both platforms. Join us for a hands-on workshop taught by CTO Kevin Colten where you'll leave with a cool project that you build with React Native! Some React.js experience recommended. Bring your laptop! Thanks to our sponsor, Capital Factory, for the space to teach you.
