Discussion on: Is React Native still worth learning?

What I think is really cool about learning React is that once you've completed the (slightly) steep learning curve of learning how to build things with React, you've basically gone ahead and learnt 80%+ of React Native and 80%+ of Electron too. As well as got pretty great experience of MVC architecture.

So I'd go ahead and learn it, when I did it I found it all pretty fun, and it teaches you pretty good JavaScript too.

I've written a couple of articles/guides on building some pretty cool very simple React Native apps here which you may find useful/enjoyable:
