Best way to learn on React Native

github logo ・1 min read

I am new in React and React Native but I'm a JS Developer and already deployed some apps in Ionic platform. I want to study react native because Ionic has a performance issue but Ionic 4 is coming and they said that it has a better performance.

React on the other side has a bigger community and no performance issue. So my question is should I stick to Ionic and wait for Ionic 4 or learn React native? And what are your recommendations in learning react native?

Thank you! :D

It's never wrong to learn new things! I'd start with learning React from their tutorial to understand the basics (React has a far smaller scope than Angular), without having to set up all the react-native-specific things. Once you have an understanding how JSX, Components, Props etc. work, dive into RN.


Honestly it's down to you really to weigh the pros and cons and decide which technology you want to use. I won't list them here because they're well documented online.

In terms of learning, there's tons of good material out there. Look up "Spencer Carli" on YouTube and there's a plethora of Medium articles.
