ReactNative is a framework developed at Facebook to create mobile applications with pure native and performant user interface for iOS and Android using JavaScript. Microsoft announced support for ReactNative for Windows at F8 this year. Microsoft has also been working on tools to efficiently build and deliver ReactNative applications. In this talk, we will look at building a smooth and native-like end to end application using ReactNative for all the three platforms. We will leverage the intellisense and debugging features of VSCode, look at attaining web live agility using Microsoft codepush and finally set up a continuous integration and deployment system using HockeyApp and Visual Studio Team Services.

We will look at best practices and patterns that the audience can take away and start building ReactNative applications of their own.
