This talk covers an approach of how it might be possible to develop a native android, native iOS and a web app, while using the same codebase for the most part, and just writing specific views. In particular, the talk will go into details on how we accomplished this at our startup and pushed a production Android and Web app using NativeScript + Angular.

The talk will cover
- The reasons why we keep striving for reuse
- Advent of ReactNative, Nativescript
- Quick intro to Angular & Nativescript
- What it takes to accomplish one common code base
- THe tool kit
- The exact details of how we accomplished it at ReStok
- Learnings and key takeaways
