React Native is best way to build Mobile Apps if you already know JavaScript. React Native combines the best parts of native development with React, a best-in-class JavaScript library for building user interfaces for Android, iOS and Web.

In this tutorial series we are going to use Expo. Expo is a framework and a platform for universal React applications. It is a set of tools and services built around React Native and native platforms that help you develop, build, deploy, and quickly iterate on iOS, Android, and web apps from the same JavaScript/TypeScript codebase.

In this blog you are going to learn, how to install and start learning React Native.


There is just one prerequisite to start learning React Native and that is JavaScript. If you are good in JavaScript, you can start learning React Native without knowing anything else. And in this blog we are going to start right from basics of React Native.
