  • What is React Native?
  • How does it differ from other mobile app development frameworks?
  • Advantages of using React Native for app development.

Setting up the Development Environment:

  • Installing Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager).
  • Installing React Native CLI.
  • Setting up an emulator or connecting a physical device for testing.

Building the User Interface:

  • Creating components and using JSX (JavaScript XML) syntax.
  • Styling components using CSS-like properties.
  • Understanding the component lifecycle.

State Management:

  • Working with state and props in React Native.

Navigation and Routing:

  • Navigating between screens in React Native apps.
  • Exploring popular navigation libraries (React Navigation, React Native Router Flux, etc.).
  • Implementing tab navigation, stack navigation, and drawer navigation.

Accessing Native Device Features:

  • Integrating with device APIs (camera, geolocation, contacts, etc.).
  • Using third-party libraries for native functionality (push notifications, in-app purchases, etc.).
  • Handling permissions and security considerations.

Debugging and Testing:

  • Debugging techniques and tools for React Native.
  • Unit testing and integration testing in React Native.
  • Using the React Native debugger and Reactotron for debugging purposes.

Performance Optimization:

  • Techniques for optimizing app performance.
  • Code splitting and lazy loading.
  • Caching and optimizing network requests.

Publishing and Distribution:

  • Preparing your React Native app for release.
  • Generating signed APKs (Android) or app bundles (iOS).
  • Submitting the app to Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

React Native Ecosystem:

  • Exploring popular libraries and tools in the React Native ecosystem.
  • Community resources, forums, and helpful websites.
