Going React Native

React Native is the latest in a long line of technologies promising to ease the pain of cross platform development for your mobile app. In this talk, we'll discuss what makes React Native different from previous technologies that have promised that but failed to deliver. I will talk about my experience in migrating a 100% native app to a native / react native hybrid, the product and technology factors that influenced my decision and where I think you should draw the line between native and cross-platform code.
