About Fragments Ahmedabad: State of Platforms

The Ahmedabad edition of Fragments Conference is a technical, deep-dive conference, discussing:

  1. React: where Vipul AM, director at Big Binary, elaborates on tooling, resources and how to get started with React: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/state-of-react-BDg5te9DaeahZN9kVaahRV

  2. React Native: working with the React Native team at Facebook in San Francisco, Parashuram explains how you can build high quality applications with React Native: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/building-high-quality-mobile-apps-with-react-nativ-T4xVLyEQFFGKzgvNsdRuta

  3. Flutter: Pooja Bhaumik explains the ease of development with Flutter in terms of reduced development times, ease of learning, and other technical features which make Flutter an attractive platform: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/flutter-do-more-with-less-code-jbAn8PKhyFgna44bvJ8fHf

  4. Comparisons of the above platforms with Kotlin and NativeScript: Arnav Gupta, known for his active involvement with the Android community, demonstrates the pros and cons of different platforms by showing how he built an app using Kotlin, Flutter and NativeScript: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/what-i-learnt-by-building-the-exact-same-app-in-ko-NuZgd4bLfKkcck2yHEGRmg

While platforms have brought in frameworks and ease of development, at the heart of a good mobile app underlies sound engineering. One such practice is that of end-to-end testing. Preeti Wadhwani argues about the importance of E2E testing, in her talk at the conference: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/proposals/meet-my-new-friend-testing-Y5FuAn6jCmXDdyL7o72LtM

We have organized a flash talks session for audience to showcase their open source work, and contribute to the above discussions. See the full conference schedule here: https://hasgeek.com/fragments/ahmedabad-2019/schedule

Building High Quality Mobile Apps with React Native

Submitted Feb 6, 2019

React Native lets you build mobile apps using JavaScript. It uses the same design as React, letting you compose a rich, platform specific mobile UI using declarative components.
In this talk, we will look at the architecture of React Native, and how it can be leveraged to build high quality applications. We will look at sharing business logic between websites built using React and mobile apps built using React Native. We will look at the various developer productivity tricks with React Native that help us build high quality mobile applications quickly.

Outline

  • Using Javascript to build mobile application
  • Comparing Cordova/Phonegap/Ionic, React Native, NativeScript and Flutter
  • Understand the React Native architecture
  • Getting up and running with React Native quickly
  • Leveraging native libraries and modules for platform specific tasks
  • A quick introduction to React Native performance.
