Before undergoing an expensive course, those interested in learning React Native, usually start with a book. But what kind? Here we will not recommend any particular book, but rather point you in the direction of the right book to buy. It should be understood from the start that you really cannot learn React Native without first knowing Java. As one book blurb puts it. "Leverage your existing knowledge to build world-class mobile applications."
Note that there is a heavy accent about existing knowledge. You may be able to find a general book on React Native, but there will be a severe limitation on what you can absorb. There is no substitute for actually learning how to apply Real Native to the real world, via mobile computer applications. So look for books that have typically around 500 to 600 pages that not only have a complete description of Real Native but will walk you through the actual creation of real applications.
The book or books you are looking for should contain numerous exercises using Real Native and have you building apps such as a weather app, a time tracker, or a messaging app.
The idea is not just to learn Real Native theoretically, but to learn using actual applications that ordinary people will use.
Merely by reading a book, no matter how carefully it is written, you will still probably need to take certification courses if you plan on hanging up a shingle as a React Native expert, but your first couple of books should guide you on your way.
Plan on spending between $59 and $125 or so for a book, and do yourself a favor, and actually purchase a physical book, not one that is accessible only on the internet.
A flesh in blood so to speak book is the way to go.
What is difference between React JS and React Native?
Only a programmer involved in creating applications for either IOS or android would fundamentally know the difference but React is basically Java, that borrows from the web to use many components of programming an application. React Native, on the other hand, has most of the necessary tools for programming built into its structure. Therefore, React is much more robust than React JS.
In addition, using React.js, a programmer often has to program not once but twice to make an application work with both IOS and Android.
Using React Native, it is not necessary to do duplicate programming.
Why React Native is used?
First of all, developed by Facebook and adopted for dozens of programs and platforms, React Native is a known product that is being used countless times and has an excellent reputation. The first and obvious reason for using native is that programmers save both time and money. Where two sets of code were previously required, with React Native, only one is needed.
Secondly, Native produces an extremely slick and fast response, and as you know, speed is the name of the game. In addition, Native is an open-source program. As a result, if your developers are already fluent in Java, then it will not take them a long time to develop how to use the Native programming.
What is an example of an app powered by React Native
Go to Bloomberg.com and check out their recent consumer app. Bloomberg says that using Native, they have significantly cut down the costs of developing an application. As Facebook found out some time ago, a company can be so busy creating updates that they sort of lose the trees from the forest.
What we can do with React Native?
Let's start with Facebook, Skype, Instagram, Uber Eats, Wallmart.com, and more. Understand that mobile is not only the future of the net but is predominant now. Close to 60 percent of all web traffic is through the use of mobile phones and in many countries, as much as 80 percent of all social media and business are used through phone applications.
One of the big problems, however, is that the mobile traffic landscape is deeply divided, with roughly 72 percent of all mobile phones operating on Android and the rest via IOS. It costs a lot of money for companies to produce applications for both types of phones, and with React Native, everything can be accomplished with the same platform.
