React Native is slowly becoming the preferred choice for developing mobile applications. If you are already a web developer, you will find that most of the principles of coding remain the same as it uses the same design as React. But the development flow might feel a bit overwhelming for someone who is creating a React Native app for the first time.

In this talk, I will describe the various tools and methods that can simplify your development workflow. I will talk about the whys and hows of debugging, performance optimizations and improved release cycles so that the next time you are developing a React Native application, you feel at home.


This talk will involve the following:

  • Intro to RN (brief intro)
  • The description of the options available on the developer menu.
  • Hot reloading vs Live Reloading. (when to use what)
  • debugging code using react native debugger/reactotron
  • Getting rid of performance bottlenecks (identification and fix)
  • techniques to achieve the goal of faster release cycles.
  • The approach to fixing a production bug (codepush and how it can help)


A bit of knowledge about React will come handy.
