Appreciate Spencer's level of detail and clear speech.
Great tutorials and great fun learning!
Good training. Helped me to get familiar with react native. I'm new as developer and the exercise app will help me to support me in my future apps.

Really like your way of presenting things, very calming and "approachable". Also your idea of watching through before coding is working pretty well for me, so thanks.
I got response from Spencer when I got stuck, I didn't expect that. It was a very well organized course. Very happy with it.

The most helpful of all the resources I've come across for React Native. Great balance of hands-on practice, demo, and theory.
Very recommended class, easy to learn. Thank you very much:)
You start thinking is a trivial app but you end up to learn just a lot :)
Good Series to brush up or learn basics of react native
Best for learning basics of ReactNative
Awesome project, I never dabbled with RN but always wanted to, and then I got a code test for job using it this class pretty much saved me!
Master React Navigation v5
You are really doing very great buddy! This course for free is the best on react native I can get. Thanks a lot

Great introductory course introducing the user to many of the essential React Native components, and key hooks including useState and useEffect, as well as contexts. Really clear and step by step. I will be digging into more of Spencer's courses
Iv'e Learned Alot from this course, Thank You
It's a great intro to react native. Really enjoying and it's making me wanting to learn more.
Very good course for the beginners to start with, each topic is explained very well.
This is a really good introduction to the elements I commonly see across many different apps! The course shows me how to create a multi-screen app, how to create my own re-usable components such at a text box that has common attributes so I don't need to repeat code / markup. The course also shows us a suggested folder structure that helps tame the complexity of an app that scales to a number of different screens, and a bunch of other things like showing a "loading" icon while waiting for an API to return. I'm just mentioning a few things but there's a bunch of other cool stuff if you're new to React Native.
I love the way the project is presented, steadily building up and adding features as you go as the different concepts are explained. Really well done course.

Good course! Just what I was looking for to introduce me to the basic React-Native concepts.
Very impressive and good learning experience.
Very easy to follow with very practical examples, Kudos!
Helped me a lot. learning React Native!
I liked the course very much as well. Some exercises were easy (thank god) and some were really hard like the long lists, api and the component lifecycle ones.
Spencer has a great teaching style, and effortlessly conveys the material in a logical manner. It is easy to learn from him and that is a testament to his skill!

Deep Linking with React Navigation v5
It's was strictly a project based, and it's excellent.
I was blown away! I'm a huge fan of Wes Bos' react courses but he has nothing on React Native. Someone in that community recommended this course as being similar. Spencer is extremely knowledgeable, and clear. His examples are great and the progression is logical and well-placed, with nothing extraneous. He definitely helped me avoid some pitfalls in moving from React to React Native!
excellent! speaker was clear & concise!!
Great class. Explained in a proper way without rushing like I saw in some other courses
The video class is an extremely helpful guide for people who are learning the basics of React Native. It also follows the standards mentioned in the React Native documentation.
Great course which helps to start learning React Native. Thank you!
He took his time while explaining and was very audible which made understanding a little better

I think it would be good to have more content every 2 or 3 weeks, it would be more interesting
React Native School Community
I took this class because I was intimidated by Apple and Google and all the hoops you have to jump through to get an app published. This course showed me easier ways to deal with the process, how to set things up for future updates and just reassured me that I was doing things properly. Before I took it I was struggling to understand certificates and provisioning profiles, but this makes it pretty easy. Definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to streamline their publishing process.
Publishing a React Native App to the App Store
This class is awesome!!! I am a senior java developer (~10 years of exp) and I recently pivoted to react native due to change of job. If you want to quickly pickup really solid fundamentals to build your knowledge on, this is the course for you!
A very explanatory and fast way to start programming with React-Native!
There's lots of bugs I encountered, caused by my code as well as the installation with yarn/npm. There's lots of things I wouldn't have understood if I didn't know the basics of CSS and OOP. Although it's a really great intro for those who have coded something else but not react native
I am a Computer Science student and beginner with React and JS. Very good and easy to follow intro course to both.
Not only is the course instructor very attentive but it's the first course and community I've been in (and I have been in many), where the instructor walks through every step. The tutorials and guidance given by Spencer and others are more in depth than anything else you'll find. I truly get the feeling that the goal of teaching is based upon the desire to solve problems and make solutions instead of just create tutorials and make a buck. The experience learned here cannot be replaced and I cannot recommend the content of React Native School Community enough. If you want to learn and understand, look no further.
Great material straight to the point and clearly explained
It was amazing.
Great and thorough demonstration of an example currency conversion app. Not for a pure beginner, skips over a lot of things but this is just a fault of mine as I jumped into something without any relevant programming experience. Some discrepancies in the code done in the video vs what is available at the bottom of each lesson, but it will certainly teach you to troubleshoot!
I’m brand new to React Native!!! This was the most detailed and clear-cut explanation of react-navigation 5 I could have asked for. Very easy to follow and understand.
I am currently building an app piece by piece and learning as I go, taking what I can from multiple resources. This class has been the most comprehensive course on React Navigation I have found so far, saving me a lot of time and guess work for this specific feature of my app. This site has become my first choice for any other topics I may need.
Wonderful explanation on React Navigation. I felt the material was really well thought and developed. Thanks for the effort!
Clear step-by-step installation
Very educative and well explained
Hey @spencer_carli ! thank you, because of you I learned Deep linking in an easy way, you put a lot effort in your courses
A very thorough explanation of the foundations of React Native
It's great , but being a beginner many things are there that am still confused with but yeah am sure as I will progress it will become more understandable.
Btw Spencer's voice is soo soothing, being a junior student I always wanted a teacher who teaches with this pace and determination
Thanks and kudos to my mentor Spencer
Easy to use and easy to follow
Great course to begin with react native its really to the point if you have basic understanding of react and hooks
Very clean, simple neat and easy to follow. Beautifully made!
over 1 year ago
This course is very well put together and all the steps are explained extremely well throughout each video.
Great teaching and he knows what's he is doing unlike others i followed many courses on udemy and most of them are crap this dude is one of the best
It's a great course where you can learn step by step the basics and create your first react native app.
Amazing fundamentals workshop. I'm just starting with react native and this workshop was very helpful. The Github repo is great as well.
This class is AMAZING! I learned a lot with it!
This is what you should use to learn the fundamentals of RN. It covers everything in a really smooth manner.
Very easy to follow. I like how Spencer shows how to configure Prettier, EsLint which are technically not part of React Native but are very essential for using VS Code most efficiently.
No explanation how how to bootstrap a native project. Probably the hardest thing about learning native. I say this because I am a React developer (web)
Great overview of React Navigation with details on everything you need to create a full-featured screen structure for mobile apps! Well paced and well done!
Good to get started. Still going through the course
Great Course for a beginner. Well Explained.
I want to personally thank you for creating this platform for web devs like myself that are very new to the industry. Right now I am creating a React Native app for a project at work and I could not imagine getting this far without your course.
Its just great!!
Very clear and simple to follow, gives a thorough view of how powerful React Native can be.
This Beginner's course is flawless. Highly recommend it to anyone. This was well organized and presented well.
The Best course i've ever found on the internet. Concepts are very clearly explained and on point.
Nice course, the only thing that's missing are some challenges at the end of the videos to better retain what is being learned.
The perfect fundamental workshop to get you up and running!!!
Really great to start learning react native. Very easy to fallow.
I have never used React Native before but this course is an easy to follow, clear introduction to the library. Definitely recommend to beginners!
Excellent course. I am a beginner in React Native and really enjoyed following through the simple set up of the Currency Convertor. Spencer explained everything clearly and shows everything from initial set up through to completion, also providing the code done for review afterwards
Simple and clean, thanks for this course.
Push Notifications with React Native Firebase
Sooo glad it's not another To-do list app. Love the nice short videos.
This is so great explanation! easy to understand also..
This course is awesome for anyone who needs to get started developing mobile application in React Native. I took the course and I learned some of the best practices required when using React Native. I particularly liked the directory structure and the use of the Context API to manage global state. I would recommend anyone to take the course.
For the price (free!) this series is awesome, loving it so far.
useful free course for learning
babel part, can help to add babel
How to Set up a New React Native Project
We take courses to learn something, and we want to learn in the best possible manner. I like to be able to reproduce what is presented in the course and then
modify it to enforce my understanding.
For any course to be useful the source code should be readily available, otherwise it is useless to my way of learning. I found that the "React Native Basics"
course is excellent in this respect.
I have gone through the course once, and now I am redoing everything and modifying segments of the code to better understand the concepts.
This is the best course I have found on the internet - it clearly explains the concepts and has the source code readily available for the student to copy and experiment with it.
Excellent course, very informative, especially for a beginner like me. I would love to see more of these type of courses.
A very Wonderfully designed Course which helped me a lot loooottttt to build a basic understanding of Architecture, design and all the basic stuff which is actully needed
Excellent course. Quick and to the point. Would definitely recommend.
almost 2 years ago
Great intro to React Native. I really like how the course is set up: a short (5-10min) video going through a topic/component/pattern with all the code from the video shown right under the video window. I usually watch the video at 1.5x then try to write all the code from the lesson without referencing the code but if I get stuck or don't remember something I can quickly reference the code samples. I haven't seen this setup on udemy or other video tut platforms and it really, really helps me not only learn but solidify my understanding of new information. Plus Spencer is a great teacher.
Great course. Not quite for beginners, but perfect for intermediate programmers. Definitely learned a lot. Would recommend to anyone wanting to start with RN.
The courses is easy to follow, and well explained. The projects is interesting and fresh, a welcome break from the usual TODO list app.
This is a complete overview of how we can set up a complete navigation system for an app. This tutorial has been very helpful to help me overcome issues I had in mind to build a navigation system.
I do not think this is beginner friendly because this guy is like: we are changing this and that and thats how its done .. no explanation whatsoever, wanted to buy the paid rn example course but after this free one I do not think I am going to do that. However, I respect the effort and time dedicated to this course.
Amazing! Coming from a native mobile developer background, this got me up to speed very quickly in React Native. The first half the course was brand new and walked through it at an appropriate pace. I liked that we started with a simple screen to build knowledge, then jumped to a more complicated screen to get advanced. The second half should be familiar to anyone who's done mobile before (presenting new screens, passing data back and forth between screens, updating data and UI based on API response), so it was a great way to bridge my existing knowledge to a new language.
I learned a lot. This course is amazing for self-taught RN Developers, it teaches you the best practices in the best way.
Thanks for your class. This is helpful for me for now
The best complete course to learning react native to a starter
Everything is cool
this is a great clear course, and very useful. and I am looking for more advanced courses for react-native.
This is my first time taking react native course. The explanation in this course is so clear. I just follow suggestions by watching the video first, then I replay it while coding it line-by-line , it worked really well. I can see the big picture of react natice really clear now.
Great course! Spencer's explanations are very clear, concise and to the point. Video playback quality is also good, which is a big reason I chose this course over some courses on Udemy.
I have worked with apps using internalization, the object to add a new translate was so large and it was impossible read it, the way to manage the translates is awesome. Thanks.
Localization: How to Support Multiple Languages
Good example but not a lot of explanations and outdated content
While the course's video may be slightly outdated, the course materials are updated. The course is extremely help for a react native beginner who is looking for a standard structure. I'll definitely keep an eye on the other courses.
This tutorial was awesome. I watched so many videos about react navigation. but i could not get that properly.They confusing me. But this video series is perfect for me...Cheers!!!!
gran curso, lo fue que yo no puede usar "exp publish" sale error, pero la aplicacion anda bien.. muchas gracias por el curso

Great Work Everything is Fine . Would You please upgrade Navigation to V5
I am doing the course a little late since launch, and there are quite a few changes when working with android the libraries have been updated but it is still possible to do the course,
the only Error i couldn't fix was
React.Children.only expected to receive a single React element child.
Video: handing Errors
This happens when
in the index file
export default () => <AlertProvider> <Navigator /> </AlertProvider>;
Thanks for the course
Note: I am not an English speaker, but I understand many things by context
Every thing is great but, it is not UPDATED !. ( ie navigation V5)
Very easy to follow along with and cleared up so many questions I had about React Navigation
it was awesome experience
Very good course!
Great work. Thank you!
Best React Navigation Course
Very Good Course for react native by creating real app.
an awesome course, concepts well explained
Great course for the basic introduction of React Navigation V5.
Thank you Spencer. Keep up the good work!
Awesome class! I've read the documentation a few times, but it really crystallized once I took this short course.
this is the latest api instead of fixer.io
This is amazing and clear course, so I am looking for more courses to learn more.
Notes were very helpful all throughout the course, It was well provided in each lessons or modules but some codes are not already working in the newer versions, the new syntax usage for propTypes.<type> for example, using isRequired is forced by eslint. However, the setting up of plugins such as prettier and eslint actually saved me enough time to deal with these type of errors, warnings and bad practices of coding.
Overall good, except there is a bit outdated package in video, but already update on source code
At the moment nothing is missing. I'm new to react native and it's all clear! :)
Nothing, but this is for your benefit, don't be satisfied satisfaction is a disease.
This was dope! I feel like I can dive back into React Native after a little time off! Thanks!
well its awesome but Im still naive when it comes to debugging errors which I would love to see listed somewhere like faqs, also its not that "updated", overall nice course
I really enjoyed this class. I had already created an app with RNv5, but I was not doing the authentication part correctly, and this cleared up all my confusion. Great job!
Great Overview!! detailed look at tabBarOptions and navigator specific actions.
It's a good course. It helps one understand the steps involved in building a complex application.
about react navigation course update, now updated to version 5.0, thx!
Good job overall. Very understandable and at a decent pace for someone who knows nothing about react-native. The only thing that I would have liked much more, is that there are things that you do not explain and force the apprentice to look for and make his own idea of what you are doing ... Many times you say what you are doing, but not why you are doing it
The only issue with this course is that most of the contents are outdated
Good teacher, good resources and organized commit history of the course files. Needs some updating for the new changes to React, React-Navigation
over 2 years ago
I like that I am able to get a hands on experience with creating an app. It is a good guide and tutorial for learning your away around using React Native and begin understanding the basic concepts of how it works and how it all comes together.
I don't like that there were steps skipped at the beginning of the tutorial in creating a new app for beginners. Additionally, instructions can seem a bit vague at times, and there are many things covered without much explanation as to their purpose or functions.
Speed of your speech is very fastly, i have to make video speed 0.75x :(
API's have changed, updates needed
I Honestly Think he covered all that was important and useful. and with a great deal of knowledge . very impressive and passionate
More about rendering options with ios and android
This course is an excellent walkthrough of react-native. I wish it were a little more updated as i've come across some issues that didn't have an explanation of how to solve. Ex: The @expo/vector-icons were unusable after attempting to resolve the multiple errors I ended up just adding images to the asset folder and moving on.
A lot of valuable information even for an experienced developer. However it will be even more valuable if you could explain not just how to do it, but also why we should do it in a that specific way.
I really enjoyed the first 4 modules but after that its all redux stuff... and I think that was may be the thing to learn in 2017 but now we need to learn hooks and context. But I really enjoyed the course its amazing and I really think its a great effort for the community.
i love how the instructure explain step by step.
but some of the source are still un updated
Really Loved it. Even you know react-native, this amazing course help me understand some basic which you can not grasp using other tutorials. Highly recommend it for people who want to learn react-native.
there was a slightly defferences between ios and android, and the package has a lot of update.
Great walk through a nice introductory project.
You should explain more how to create and run the first app. There are a lot of troubles
I liked everything, thanks so much for this. I've learned a lott
I love the clarity you provide throughout your lessons. Succinct, clear, no BS, no waffling ... Thank you!!
Over-the-Air Updates with CodePush
Alert component throwing up error
Detailed "real world" explanations. Managed the slight differences in both android and IOS very well. Example project is complex enough to learn a lot
This course was super valuable, I learned how to write components for a React Native app and how to use Expo. Additionally, after following this course I found my mobile app project to contain a lot of clean code with modular components and meaningful variable names.
What I did not like was dealing with so many Expo SDK version issues at almost each module. Additionally, the information in Module 7 is outdated and when I published the Currency Currency App the app wouldn't load because the SDK needed to be a version of at least 33.0.0. However, this course was very helpful for learning how to publish using expo, how to use extended stylesheets and react navigation to make development easier. Note: This review is in combination of my first review I submitted before this one.
Well, i took notes since the beginning so i would be able to apply your way of coding in my Bluetooth project and i was really focused and extremely happy because i was being able to structure everything i would need in my head but when the redux thing happened i got a bit overwhelmed, i read a lot of documentation in between videos and i have a lot of information to process. I'm still very excited to do it because i still can structure everything in my head apart from the how i would handle the constant async values being received by bluetooth altough i already started looking into it and there might be a solution within all those saga functions. Probably it can be similiar to an api request (since the pairing with the device is just like that), but after being connected and monotorizing a service with a specific characterisic, i don't know how i'll handle it to put it into a chart etc. I got it working with hardcoding inneficient scripts so with your tecnhiques and tricks it might get where i want to. I only started working 1 and half month ago and altough my boss liked what i did i wasn't happy with the end result and i flt like there were so many pieces missing that i didn't know about (redux, saga, navigation etc) so thanks a lot for making my brain work !
Excellent job man, very well structured and extremely thorough
I liked that part of UI creation how easy it can be code without a hassle in react native. Some part of the explanation were missing in the course (just improve the explanations little more - how something is behaving, how these function calls behave, etc.)
Loved everything about it, made me re-start my whole project from scratch to be more efficient, scalable and ready to use on a team environment. Maybe you'll talk about it in the next videos but i'm curious how you would handle the organization of the project if you had an async component constantly receiving values, (In my case is a bluetooth heart rate sensor) Thanks a lot for this free one !
Wonderful thing, thank you!
I really liked the course so far, I like that you try to keep some notes to update if some API's changed or not since you recorded the videos, that's very helpful. The only thing I feel like is that there's quite a lot of boilerplate that could be avoided in a course, like setting up 3 files per component, I understand this is related to project structure but it's not the most important thing when someone is trying to learn React Native.
I really appreciate your effort on this course, I intend to go through it all! Congratulations 👍
Highly Recommended for RN startups
every step was well explained
if you shall update the video to latest version of software package, that would be great.
Some packages are out of date
I think the course is very detailed. I like the way you explain things and it is also very good that you mentioned what is old and fixed it with the new up to date things.
Thank you so much! I learnt a lot from this course. I started developing app using React-Native from 2 years ago, but this course taught me many new things. Again, thank you, Spencer.
I liked every aspect of it. I liked using extended stylesheet as global variables for colors. But The Navigation is outdated. Please update that.
I like the explaination and the example
I love, using the best practice implementing the app is very helpful, thank you very much!
— It's been a nice course, thanks a lot.
The rating may be a little unfair as this is a free course. Spencer is a 5-star teacher and has a very good grasp of React Native. The only reason why I gave it a 3 was because many of the course content were outdated and answers were not easy to come by.
Materinya bagus , namun saya kurang suka tidak terjemahan bahasa Indonesia di video tersebut
What I like: Good course content/structure, learnt many things to get started with React Native.
What I do not like: Many coding/libraries are outdated. Code in video isn't the same as code downloaded. Doesn't work well with new iPhone, doesn't work with Android.
I loved all the learning offered, very valuable information. WELL DONE!!
I like that you explained why you did things the way you did because not a lot of tutorials do that. I'm very much not a coder that needs to know the reasoning behind why you do things a certain way.
It wasn't as updated as I'd liked so I spent a good amount of extra time working with updated packages, and the breaking changes that come with it, because I figured it'd be better to work with the most up-to-date packages. But that's not necessarily a bad thing.
I also kind of wish we'd gone through deployment to the App Store not using Expo. It's easy, free and great for starting out so I can see why you did it. I have your other course and I'm hoping there is more info in there on deploying to the App store.
Overall I learned a good amount even though I've been working in React Native for over a year.
Very well structured course, I enjoyed it a lot. Only one thing was missing which is proper introduction to React Native (components, rendering, state, etc), the development process and also parts for handling the web part of react native apps
The course is a little out of date, maybe you should alert it somewhere. I've had some problems with Ionicons (probably related to something I did wrong), and for the navigation things, I had to look at their documentation, which is not a problem, but maybe you should write a note or something. Also, the copy-paste Alert made me feel bad...
I liked everything..
Passionately explained and learning more than i already knew which is a plus
Having proper setup for development helps a lot and this course is bang on.
I am a blind developer and expo because you have to scan a barcode is not accessible for blind people but react-native with react-native-cli is as far as I could get. Wish the creaters of expo want to make a option to type in your barcode and not just scan. So can not complete the course. Thank you
Very good explanation of concepts - could improve a bit if: for the out of date content, could add some in-video-popup text bubble to say what is different in current version, that's how I have seen it done before, also could improve a bit by not repeating the boilerplate imports typing in every lesson, it's OK in the first few, could start the lesson with boilerplate typed already to save some time. Keep up the good work!
I liked the routine of creating components with their own files and importing them to the screen. I was easily able to understand a practice for creating React Native apps.
What did you like, what did you not like, what was missing, etc.?
No basic explanation of React-Native or what components are what is render, etc. It can be real confusing for a beginner to get familiar with the concepts along with the course.
I liked how you cover the basics of React Native
I liked the topics that were covered, I just didn't like that the voice was a little bit low in some parts and some noise in the background
every thing was good. i just some problem in learning redux saga.
It's a little outdated at this point but it did point me in the right direction of stuff to take a look at and use.
This course introduced the essential react native components for building an interesting app. I feel comfortable to start my project after this course.
Great.wonderful awesome and so on :)
Thanks, especially for Github.
I have just a problem in option screen part
get error when use Ionicons.'Unrecognized font family Ionicons'
I search it and tryed solutions but none of them did not work.
plz Help :(
This was like a super compressed jump start as I am yet to get my feet wet and dive in this weekend at (I just started this not before leaving the office).
Thanks for the time and effort put into your content, quite resourceful.
Nice summary yet very detailed
I thought the course was awesome, now I know how to set up a react project!:)
Clear explanation, but some codes could not work due to version problem
almost 3 years ago
Its absolutely amazing tutorial as a free! Thanks
Nice course for starters. But i don't like, it covers Expo installation type only
It was informative.
Everything was quite good. Faced some issues
1. fixer.io is not allowing to change base currencies for free
2. How will I get android n iOS builds that I may upload on app store
As a beginner a think this is 100% good
Could have been bigger with more functionalities
It's quite good and thorough. I'm trying to think what would improve it but nothing comes immediately to mind. I would love to have a course on having a full login menu and system allowing users to login in using facebook or Google or just have an id and password and all the security that entails. Maybe you have that already?
I would like to learn about how to use database.
I liked the course. Don't know yet wha't missing.
I liked that even some videos are outdated there is always a link to the repo with the new code
It is beautiful course, thanks!
Actually what I found missing is, you should have given a small example of react navigation between 2 screens
Very information dense, which is great for my learning style! Didn't waste my time.
great tutorial, video is a little fast if you're coding along w it. had to check out completed code a lot.
Very nice build up to a great pay off!
More clarity on functions
Puts the bar high enought and makes me design and organize better my own projects.
I missing the details of the last video in the module of react-navigation( handling errors).
Wonderful course! I came across a lot of issues due to older and newer versions being in conflict, but it was helpful attempting to debug them and I learnt a lot. Appreciate a lot for putting this course together.
ESLINT throws this error "Unable to resolve path to module 'react-native' import/no-unresolved" - I followed your tutorial perfectly but can't get past this
This is so retarded. Why run prettier which changes all the formatting, only to run lint:fix straight after that changes it all back?? No man.
First of all thank's. Every steps was right to follow. It's very helpful for me to write a clean code step by step. Again Thank's.
You are amazing in teaching, good job! This is helping me immensely. You cover a lot of material, I could not ask for more. Sorry I can't provide you with any constructive feedback, but you're doing everything great. I will make sure to donate.
Very good lecture. Would be great to understand also the differences between expo cli and react-native init. Is it enough to build a real application(without 3rd party libraries)?
Would it be possible to update the course with a module using the new context API instead of Redux? :)
i love this course.
everythings good so far. if possible update to current standards for the modules/packages used
I liked that the tutorial was easy to follow. What I did not like is that some of the code is outdated for the current React Native.
Clear and full details
Teaching me react-native essentials and important fundamentals early on. Love it.
Interactivity was awesome!
I don't like exporting all through the index file.
I like stucture of the course, I mean all lessons named and grouped by themes.
very good lession
It was all good! but i think it would be better if you reproduce this tutorial with new versions. it was kind of challeng for me to find out about changes. the only think i couldn't find out was about change animating ImageBackground. could you please tell me about it? how to resize it? it was not as what you showed in the tutorial.
I like it, it's awesome. I can't say what's missing, it doesn't seem perfect but it's very useful and a great introduction to react-native. Thanks a lot for your effort.
I thought this was a perfect tutorial to get started learning React Native! Thank you for putting this together!!
It was good for the beginners
I feel like individual things could have been explained more, as it's a 'basics course'.
I really appreciated this course. It helped to get me up and going very quickly. I was already somewhat comfortable with React, but this example really pushed me into react native. I have a much better understanding of design practices, how to create modularized code, and the libraries react native leans on to make magic happen.
After publishing my application to Expo, however, the logo and status bar seem to have disappeared. I am uncertain as to why this has happened.

Good basic introduction, needs an update in some parts to reflect changes in components used but otherwise good content.
Second comment: I like how you made Redux understandable. Unfortunately, in beginning Module 6, my good internet connection fails to "yarn add redux-saga@any version I try". Does the redux-saga npm package have a problem?
Versions I tried: 0.16.0, 0.16.2, 1.0.2
I really liked module 3. The lessons are great and I really appreciate the breakdown of how to handle cross platform issues.
I learned a lot. I had some trouble keeping up with Spencer as I was typing along with him, but I managed. I had trouble installing the redux-saga package, but finally just set my yarn timeout higher for that command and it worked.
So far I like your explanation, it's easy to understand and fun to learn. Keep up the good work!
Excellent so far! Bravo mate! I totally like the pace of your tutorial, the fact that we watch the Motion Capture first, and the fact that you keep re-typing same code (for example with ExtendedStylesheets).
You covered everything and kept the files updated
I'm enjoying it! I got stuck for a bit in Module 3 around Animating the Logo, until I saw the note about things changing and read the File Changes. Now I'm having trouble with the icons. They only show chinese characters even if I use hard-coded 'ios-arrow-forward' or 'md-arrow-forward'.
I liked that the course covered a lot of the little things that many online teachers forget or omit because they think most people know how to do them, for example linting, prettier. my concern is that looking at your different courses and videos, things change all the time, are these hints and tips up to date? are there easier ways to do things now? do you lay out your projects differently now? has react native changed in ways that make some of these practices obsolete? something that seems to be missing is git, it is mentioned but not explained. overall, these courses lay everything out simply, the content is not rushed, nor is it dragged out, the speech is clear and succinct and the videos are of high quality.
Hands on description and resolution of problems. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Okay, so I think there's be some upgrades in react-native since the tutorials was made. I had to get my way around certain things myself. But on a general scale, I have learnt so so much from this course and I hope to learn even more!
this will be my recommendation as go to course for all the react native developers from React, well done dude !!
likes: course pace, explanation, course organisation.
so far so good! Thank you.
Loved the way you presented, talked, and provided enough details to understand. Certainly look forward to see your other courses.
I like this tutorial just because of providing video to understanding everything.
The good: very well structured and you explain things very well. The bad: splitting UI components into index, style and component itself files generates too much boilerplate that might distract beginners and consumes valuable time each time a new UI component has to be created. I know it might be considered good practice, but it could be left for a more advanced course.
A huge set of assumptions are being made
Everything great currently.
Silently dangerous. Cutting edge course. good teaching skills. love the inner tips explanation sheets.
Organize projeto is good. Routes config isn't good. The update module navigation use missing.
Great course, still a lot of concepts are direct thrown like PropTypes, and other properties. Would be great if links on wheer to refer different properties are shown
It was a good fast overview of setting up a new project, but it was definitely for advanced React developers who have already done some other tutorials.
The course is really great, however you need to update it. PropTypes has been updated, Alert doesn't work, using iconions throws an error. You should encourage students to submit PRs as that is an important lesson unto itself.
some lessons contaons deprected things
I think everything was covered.
As a beginner, I find this course to be very helpful. But it would be better if you have provided some examples.
theme when base currency or quote currency change the primary color is loading
everything is coded that's the best part. some snippet not matched with videos but i can understand due to versioning. easy to grasp for beginners. answered almost all questions that come into mind during tutorial. great work :)
till the navigation every thing was explain great
Figuring out what was out of date i.e. propTypes
The course cover the basic concepts needed for build a large application and that all i need.
I think it's really great so far
Really good the way you teach react native, everything was easy to understand
I like the examples in the course and it's awesome have the code to validate doubts.
Updates to new version.
It's really good to start learning with react native.
I have worked on React on the web, but not with React Native, so I liked the fact that your recommendations for things like Prettier and ESLint, and their importance, fit with my experience! That gives me confidence in your React Native recommendations. I also liked the pace - I'm going to be checking out some of your paid courses next!
Its a great introduction about project scruture, thank you.
The android emulator setup is out of date i think. I am unable to launch android simulator. I added the lines
to my bash file in home, but still says no android device.
missing some good video controller for streaming
Do you set up any ui kit in the react native app or any animation kit?
Now somethings are outdated but I guess that is the nature of development. It could be a bit clearer noted though with some huge red letters or something, for example that the navigator has changed?
Everything else is good, good pacing, relevant content. Thank you!
I'd prefer a deeply explanation about Alert error section
I liked this course very very much! Thank you for providing us with this such good course, I am new in react native and I already learned a lot with your course! Just again Than YOU a LOT!!!!!!
give some tasks after module or some props about how I can play with options of libraries, alternative libraries witch can be used and props and cons of each of them
I like all the covered subjects, now I'll start the "production ready" course. I'll only ask you to update of refactor the code to not to use the deprecated methods (componentWillReceiveProps, and the old context api). Aside from that, I had any problems folowing it. Congrats Spencer!
Most of the subjects still work with the newer versions. I would like to see the Alert component using the new context version, though. It's really great! Congrats
This course is awesome and easy to follow. More power :)
great video and detailed steps
I like how informative and easy to follow it is.
this course is very easy to understand and neatly structured
over 3 years ago
One word Brilliant. Very well organized and explained. Thanks
Just needs to be slightly updated, but still really good in 2019
The course it is pretty good, it is a little bit outdated but still dig in with the core react concepts.
It is not up to date. I did not like the "Handling Errors" left unexplained, I think you should explain it as an skipable extra instead.
This was an excellent course! I think the Redux / Saga part could have included a bit more explanation for a newcomer. Fortunately, I already have a little experience with it; so, it wasn't too bad. You've done a great job of introducing someone to React Native with a realistic, useful app.
I've taken several paid React Native intro courses. This is by far the best training I've received - for free! I'm also fairly experienced with React Native, but I've still learned a great deal from this course.
It moves too fast for someone without JS experience (I'm a native iOS dev). For example, the presenter seems to type as fast as possible and then immediately change screens. Also, it would be nice if things that were happening were actually explained, like what is 'require', better explanation of how Props and such work, etc. Basically what is happening behind the scenes from a technical/language perspective.
It's a really good course, I appreciate it
For the Beginners, It's the best course to be followed to create a simple react native app
Really nice course - really enjoy it so far. You're really fast so I have to pause often though haha.
It is the best course , all the concepts are clear about installing packages and coding of react native.
I like the whole course it's amazing, but I didn't know how to save data after fetching it or changing theme, I mean save it after closing app.
Spencer Carli's React Native course is the best value for the money I have spent learning while learning a new technology. Not only do you build a functioning app but along the way you learn the industry's best practices. I personally found Spencer's technical explanations to be helpful as I do not like to write code without knowing why or how it works.
Your step-by-step approach is awesome. I also enjoy that we're building a fairly complex app to start.
Android navigation works differently
I think some parts needs update
Expo seemed to me very unstable. I would like to see the use of React Native without expo.
Repetition was welcome. Outdated react native code made it difficult to debug
I really really like this tut and he did a really good job out of it! He knows what he's talking about! =D
What disturbs me a lot is that usually Frameworks update very fast and usually old methods to do things change drastically every....day almost!
And updating the code to a newer state is very hard or.... it takes a lot of time. And I have to keep cheking every time how to implement what he's saying with the newer and only way to do it.......
Its cool since u learn a lot when you search for things to make it work but the learning curve drops off a lot and sometimes im like "damn... I want to but I dont want to continue with this tutorial because I haven't figured out how to do what he's saying..."
Either way, is a really good tutorial ^^ cheerS!!!
Awesome explaining of basics in RN.
i like this lesson
The teacher speaks too fast. Maybe the problem is that English is not my native language, but in other courses I usually do not rewind video every minute.
When the teacher writes the code, the previous code is closed with a hint from one of the vscode plugins. Seriously, it is very annoying. And it prevents to cover more than one line of code.
I like everything u teach tell, nothing was miss, it's awesome ! great job.
Awesome tutorial!! Speak more about foundations of apps, and architecture. I can then look up API etc.
You do not explain what software you will use on the course
I particularly love the note on top of the video when there's a change to react native. It made learning so easy for me as I didn't have to go searching for answers online.
everything was awesome
the explanation was extremely clear. Some times when we enter the hard topics like Redux it was boring first, I had to take break, repeat some modules. But In the end I can say that, I understand well.
Unfortunately fixer.io api changed. And I couldn't follow the Redux Saga session properly. But I think, understand the logic. I am planning to make a weather forecast app for understand well this section.
I have done two paid courses on react native but I still couldn't wrap my head around it. This is the best course I have done so far on React Native. I feel good doing it now. I would also like if the new way to import prop types is also indicated in one of the lectures so that newbies won't spend a great deal of time trying to work with prop types. Bt this is still a great course so far. Thanks to the tutor.
I did love the way the author shows all the bits and parts that need to be used. Not only the basic 3rd party libs are introduced but it is also explained how to elegantly integrate them in the app architecture so that future maintenance will be ok. Really great tutorial!
How do you find "Duck" approach for redux, when each business component has its own reducers and actions inside its folder. Also as an idea - would be cool to hear top 10 libs you are using the most =)
I wish you went into detail about why you are using certain syntax. Other than that it is a great tutorial and a great source for me to reference to.
Love the way you laid out the contents, introducing bits by bits, then slowly tie the components to the screens, the screens to the navigation, along the way, I also learned how you structure the codes to make the pieces stay together in one folder in its own component folder etc. That said, I'd put all the images in one folder higher at the top of the tree structure, thinking ahead to CDN and how to break out pieces that don't often get modified or change.
I like the pace of course learning stuffs and also best practices that I've never learned so far, like how to have a general alert system for the entire app. that's wonderful!
I also wanna mention some changes that happened to this module. First, Navigation V3 differs a little bit that worth to notice. Second, in android there is some whitespace between header and StatusBar in other pages (not Home). I solve that by removing 'cardStyle' from routes and add that media query in styles of Header component for android (not sure that worked in iOS!).
I like the step-by-step structure; I know some things in React have changed so some more detailed notes on those changes would be good (e.g. I had to Google and link the gesture handler in order to use navigation)
Everything is good. proptypes from react package is deprecated.
Every bit as good as the best 'Learn programming online' paid classes. Although I would classify this in the 'like' column, there were a few deprecated things (react navigation 3 being released since) but its enough to make you actually have to figure a few things out yourself.
Better if it'll get upgraded to latest versions of react and npm. In addition, I would like to work with you closely and need you to be my mentor.
The up to date code diffs have been super useful. A lot of times the courses become out of date and loads of time is spent trying to debug, but having the code diffs reduces this effort.
Spencer's courses and tutorials have been an immense help to me on my journey to become an Android and iOS mobile app programmer. He has taught me to better utilize the React Native component model--which, along with its cross-platform nature is really its core strength and saves one from redundancy. All this, and he has always been there with an answer when I've run up against one of those frustrating coding problems as well! I recommend his courses highly.
I've been doing React/React Native for about @ years now and I still learnt some new things.
I like content of the course
The course is amazing and too good to be free. High point for me was the dev structure and tools config. Thanks Spencer, great content.
I got an error while starting my app, it said it could not connect to metro bundler
I liked all, maybe you should have explained some react and react-native basic concept connected to the different element introduced.
I like Component based file structure so that we can maintain our app easy.
And EStyleSheet really awesome feature. No other tutorial explained like this. My friends feel like writing too much code compare to Ionic framework, but we learned how to swim while diving into code.
Missing parts are how to use Redux.
i like your style of teaching, how you put the pieces together show great understanding of what you're teaching. i wish you could do a course writing tests in react
I think the course is missing an authentication section so it can be complete. But overall I really enjoyed the instructor
Missing your VS config. Share the user settings :) BTW very good course.
Overall is a good course (also free) i would like to get deep dive into redux and saga, because it is very confusing all the data flow and name for the reducers, actions, store, etc. I still can not connect everything in my mind to make sense.
explained everything very nicely and in simple language, practical examples.
the error handling stuff (AlertProvider, connectAlert)
I like the way you organize the code and explain some basic things, but sometimes you go so fast that is a bit difficult to follow you without make mistakes in code. Besides, some outdated sections are complicated to fix without a deep search on github & stackoverflow, i would like to have comments section in every video for feedback with other students. I am currently thinking about taking some of your payed courses, which one would you recommend me to take?
I liked the whole course it was easy to understand and very useful the only thing that I would like to know and was missing here (IMO) is about react native init projects and how different they are comparing to your method?
The way you arranged your boilerplates was excellent
really nice, discovering fundamentals api of react native
the explanations are very clear, you show very useful library and how to use them step by step (i just saw the video abut using prettier with lint and lint-staged - very good!)
android details (currencies list doesn't drag down (Currency List Modal), how to change styles of dropdown alert (status bar overflows the top of the alert)), update dependencies to the latest one,
I was hoping you would tell you how to build an apk file and share it on Google Play.
Russian language :)
It's a great starting point for react native.
I just have a little work with eslint & prettier.
For eslint I had to use different command for initializing (because I use windows) [that's > node node_modules\eslint\bin\eslint.js --init]
And for husky your way of writing scipt in package.json file is deprecated and I suggest you to change that part to this:
Generally that was great and I love it!
Your workflow in React Native is the awsome and it's the most important thing some can learn from your course.
instead of ignore jsx rule for airbnb lint, you could do this instead: https://github.com/facebook/react-native/pull/5233#issuecomment-442279996
It's a fantastic course to organize React Native project. I flow this project structure for all my React Native projects after watching React Native basics Currency Converter course. Overall I liked everything in this short course.
Just great! Everything!
lack of explanations what some thing do under the hood.
It teaches good patterns to go with, but it is also outdated (at least at the moment)
I liked the straight forwardness and not having to go through a 30 minute tutorial of daunting details to get the concept and overview of the tools.
this is simple
It was a good review, I picked up a few things along the way to make things easier. I didn't know that single quotes is the standard, I have prettier in VSCode and it converts them all to doubles, I'll have to setup eslint to make them all single again. Is there a way to tell Prettier to leave them alone? (I could probably google that). Also - Stylesheets come first? is that an Airbnb thing?
Android focus to the course
THIS IS GREAT!!! Thanks dude
Thanks for awesome course. All sections are clear. Expression is very fluent.
I don't like the noise in 2 videos (perhaps my headsets)
Very good beginner 101 videos and it shined light on my learning. Would like to see how you connected to git. :) But nice job .
It was a very fast and very deep overview!
It's missing comments and interactivity. I am trying to get things working, but he's talking from Mac point of view, and glossing over commands for linux without telling us how to actually spell what he's writing, or showing us what we actually need too type. So, after several minutes on Google, I find the command and: it didn't work, and there's no community of people to write to to find out how others solved the problem.
Nothing was missing. The perfect thing about this course was teaching how to design a real-world app in a professional way. Thanks a lot .
Great course for at newbie just starting to learn about react native
All is awesome
Code version mismatch and some basic idea was not clear. Some basics of react and file structure would have been very beneficial.
I think that it's the very best free course I've ever had. I'm a newbie with react native, after 3 days looking for some directions I found this course and now I'm already working with react native. Probably in these lessons you must have more written descriptions of the code, for an advanced user it's not need, but for a newbie it will help.
Thanks again for this.
Greetings from Aveiro - Portugal.
Everything is great! The thing I like the most is the perfect English. And also it's great that the course contain Redux and Sada. Thank you very much!
Thank you so much when you share this course for everybody.
I very great!
Very useful to start working. Needs a recent update, it's better.
Good course for beginners. Excellent work.
Great course. Looks like a good starting point for learning react. Course creator does not talk about how certain packages work, he tells their purpose and uses them. So if you want to learn more about how redux works, you will have to do it on your own.
Amazing course, learn't so much along the way thank you.
It is one of the first courses about React Native that deals with all the fundamental aspects for the development of a real app. Superawesome!
Thank you for the course! I think it would be nice to add some tasks for homework, something simple to do by myself.
Wow, all these things are very important, probably a lesson with all the specific react-native modules it would be nice.
Greetings from Portugal.
The course is very well structure. What sometimes is not very nice, is the popup on the code, with the functions documentation that covers up what is been typed. I am the type of person that has to type along.
It gives the starter a orientation into react-native setup, which you find it anywhere.
everything is fine keep it up..
There are some legacy code that unable/should not use anymore, such as <Image> inside <Image>, should be <Image> inside <ImageBackground>, which leads to another problem about the animation.
The api had changed since then, the api url is different, and not free to use query ?base anymore, I suggest change to https://exchangeratesapi.io which has similar structure
Otherwise, it's a best react native course I have learnt, thank you very much
Great course, Easy to understand. I hope you would add testing in the future.
First of all, worked awesome. one thing, why did you import styles.js in index.js? and second thing is, not working the navigation in CurrencyList, when click to any list item, it doesn't go back to the home page. Tell me if any changes made to. Thank you..:)
Liked : Practical example with step by step explanation.
Loving it so far! I've been away from RN for a little over a year, so this has been a great refresher. Every aspect seems to be covered and I'm eager to get to the redux module..!
It is an fantastic first guide to React-native especially for someone who hasn't even used React. However, I find myself following the mechanics of creating the app but not really understanding why I am doing something. Perhaps this will come with more immersion. Thank you so much for creating this wonderful, free tutorial. I am looking forward to learning more from your premium courses.
I like everything you taught in this tutorial. Amazing work, Thank you :)
I like that you went through your own development environment . I wish that you would have walked through a simple react native application, though.
how to setup unit-test for the components and also redux setup is missing
I like how this tutorial is so succinct
test more on android
I like the professionalism and good practices that you show. Thank you so much for that!
I like the explanation for React Navigation and generally handling navigation in React Native. Previously I had used React Native Router Flux for my application but I was not satisfied with it. This course (module) helped me to convert it to React Navigation. Fantastic!
I liked??? I loved every part of this series you tailored for react native. It's an awesome course and I have recommended most of my friends here in India to go through your course. Thanks for making this series. Appreciate your efforts and admire your skills.
One thing more, First of all it may sound weird but your course are listed in USD which cost a lot for Indian developers. For eg. $67 cost around 5000 in India.
I know a lot of pain goes in making such wonderful tutorials. But it proves costly for us.
Can you do something like what Wes Bos has done. He gives us a coupon which drastically reduce the price for Indian (in INR currency)
Overall, I like this course, however I expect this course to be continued to the uploading part (especially to App Store), since the link you gave about uploading to production is a "paid" course. And I hope to know the best practice for versioning apps as well. I hope to see more courses like this in the future. To be honest, I have one request about the best practice for a big project contains multiple modules, how to manage screens, etc for each modules, how to handle the dependency among few modules, etc. Anyway, thank you very much for this great course!
can I have access to your courses free. I am student yet.
I would like to thank you for this tutorial. keep it up and share me the links if you have other free tutorials for react js and react native.
Great job. Thank you!
Perfect explanation, simple but cover all subjects an give a great start of RN.
Everything is this course, too fast.
pass state as props with navigation without dispatch in redux
The course was great.
redux and state management was not clear enough, all other modules were is great
For me, the best course of React Native! Thank you so much! Really understandable, your voice is not too fast for me (not en. native).
Really enjoying the course, the explanations is very clear and the pace of the course is great. Thank you
the project structuring and component reuse
The video cannot move backward when push left button in Firefox, don't know whether it's an error.
Very easy to follow along. Wished you explained a bit of the big fundamentals such as what is a state and prop which new users like me have no idea.
I like Project structure and Editor tricks
Good to "Organizing Your React Native Project" but after all project is done.. Bad :( But the start is very COOL! Thank you
Everything was good and properly explained in this course.
One thing is missing, i think in this we are not directing one activity to another.
e.g: when we login it redirects to other another activity.
i hope this will be handled in next tutorials.
good start for the beginners tp react native
My only complaint would be that course is a little bit outdated which did cause some problems when trying to follow the tutorial
Some things are outdated, there is better workarounds for other things (KeyboardAvoidingView with scrollview, as an example), but overall its a very good course.
It would be great to have something about AsyncStorage :)
Occasionally the steps were a little rushed through, however didn't find it to be much of an issue.
This is easily the best course I've come across, and one that I genuinely feel is helping me learn React Native so quickly. Thank you so much!
I like this course, thank to the author. Sometimes I was stucked due to react native versions incopatibility, but I think, it helped me to understand this material more deeply. I'd like to see more information about emulator setup, because I spent a lot of time trying to start it up.
Just great! The course is very well structured, it follows up a good learning curve, it doesn't goes too deep into the details, just exactly what you need to proceed forward.
I realy like how it is split up in all those parts! very good organized! helped me a lot to het into react, because this application covers almost everything! Thank you for your big effort!
The amount of effort and polishness that has been put into this course is amazing. I would pay for this course any day of the week. I don't really feel like joining the group, but would definitely buy you a coffee. Cheers.
The VScode popup over the lines can be annoying when trying to read the code when it is paused
i liked to learning both OS at the same time
eslint & prettier, the fact that it is free
This was one of the best courses I have come across lately for react native, I am a beginner to react native. I would like to suggest adding more info about basics along with the tutorials, for example why certain keyword are used in the code, etc. This will give a little bit of fundamental knowledge to the learner as well along with an amazing practical session. Otherwise man you rock. The modules are timed very well.
Everything is OK, keep it this way. It would be good if in the details section bellow the video you can put links for more info about the stuff you introduce in the video.
all good, sometimes confusing, somethings are not explained why they are done so. overall it good.
Nice examples and good explanations of most important components of react native!
it's very intuitive and practical, only small drawback is that I'm working on an android, while you focus on iOS. great tutorial though, thanks a lot.
I like the way, you explain all things very clearly and one by one. so anyone can understand easily. this app should be in react native CLI instead of expo :( . Many of the function i am not able to use like Image in children, Animate.ImageBackground not working for me. Also that @expo/vector-icons. i imported manually but its not working and that's why i don't added any icons in my application.
In lessons Options Stack Navigator and Handling Errors there are some differences between IOS and Android.
I like that you teach how to structure the project. It is unfortunate that some stuff is out of date, but I appreciate the notes and code being updated.
It's great to use the same app during the complete course. Maybe you should give links where to find more information about each subject that you are covering.
I liked everything as this is my first course in RN.
I don't know if learning to use the alert provider is really necessary since we have the alert thing to use.
This project is awesome man!
I liked the course overall so far, Really put together quite nice.
simple, straight forward. I followed and I understood
Everything is really good so far,
i love you man, you are awesome
May be more info about React Native Navigation
Hi. Into some step you are continue put import React from 'react'. Its borring. Also I do not see difference between simpleHTML->react Native <- Native apps. And you are not put into texts some documentnaion about styles, properties and another things about RN.
everything is perfect
I love the style of instruction; perfect pace and content.
Pace was really good. Explanation was very clear. It would be great if its updated. Libraries change. What works for you might not work for the viewers.
some things aren't working and should be updated by now
I'm really enjoying this course, and I wanted to thank you for it.
I think the structure of the course: first screens, then navigation, state and so on is a good one and using a currency converter as the application to build (and not the classic ToDo list) gives you the opportunity to teach more stuff.
As a beginner with React and React Native (I've only written a basic web application by myself) I've missed more information about what elements I can use (what's a 'TouchableOpacity'? And a 'TouchableHighlight'? What's the difference? Why they didn't name it 'Button'?...) but once I finish this course I'll read a book or two to learn about those.
Anyway, thank you, sir, for your nice work.
Tutorial is too good and good for quick start. Good thing is tutorial is updated with latest/deprecated changes on each video.
It is well explained and it's very helpful.
What I liked.
Nice diction, pacing, well researched and organized video. Probably more work went into producing this than I can really imagine. To have this offered for free is quite a bargain. Having git commits associated with each lecture is wonderful. I wish everyone did this.
What could be improved.
I like to code along with the video and this course makes that hard for a couple of reasons. The video player window is too small for me to easily make the text big enough to read with confidence, and if I make it full screen then I can't see my own editor. I want to be able to see your code and my own at the same time.
Frequently when I want to read your code the video has the text you are talking about obscured by the pop up 'intellisense' window and I have to carefully move the video forward and back to try and find a frame where the text is visible, or look in the git repo.
I also don't like the video players inability to remember the speed settings. I like to watch at 1.5 speed and this player makes me set this speed every time I go to a new lecture, I'm used to YouTubes player which will remember the speed setting across multiple videos.
This course is great! I loved the pace of the videos with explanations to the point.
One of the best courses I've taken with respect to staying focused on real world-style development.
I took this course, because I wanted to try out VS Code with React Native and since this course was free I learned how to setup linting etc. through this course :)
Login navigation screen
Love the delivery and the content.
The tutorial is well defined and easy to follow. I have no experience with React or React Native and this tutorial has provided me with the tools I need to create applications for my work.
Less explanation Redux.
This course is great because it gives an overview of why you would use each individual package instead of just copying/duplicating what other projects do without understanding the benefits.
Nice brief course with a lot of useful information! Thank you! Perhaps you could use prettier options for quotes instead of running eslint fix after to fix them.
Explanation with practicing so good.
Great for beginner,
Very good course. Thank you.
Very helpful. It misses some local storage to save the state.
easy to understand, nice explanations
almost 4 years ago
can use other methods to fix keyboardDidShow issue?
Thanks for the great course.
It is a really useful course. Thank you very much. There is just one minor thing that you can watch out for if you record course videos again. There is a box over your text editor when you type that gets in the way of what you are typing. But that is not a crisis. Thanks again.
Really liked the way it is setup. But its mostly talking about fresh setup. But would like to know more about how we can add react native to existing native project
Awsome ma, !!!!!!!!! Amazing
I really like the whole approach of how you build from ground up. In the sense that you first add the building blocks and then build complexity and functionality. This course was super useful. I am doing this tutorial on Android and though I had to fix couple of issues with the code. It was not a big deal. Overall super thankful dude. Keep rocking!
It was interesting, some date was deprecated, but easy to fix. thanks a lot. will be cool to add lessons "how to publish this app in real app store and google market
Excellent tutorial so far. Only that I feel like things are kind of repetitive in module 3: The User Interface which is okay for me since I can skip or fast forward.
thanks, everything was perfect, i really learn a lot. Thanks
So far still awesome
new efficient ways to do things
It helped me a lot, i was having issues on running the server and you clarify my questions. thanks
First, Thanks for free tutorial, Everything was perfect, sometimes u forget to show for android.
Best react native course I have done so far. I like that you give advice on how to structure a project. It's unfortunate that some code is already outdated but I'm glad that you offer links to the current code.
Overall great tutorial, Redux Module part is well explained which lacks in others videos, however Redux Saga is quite diffcult.
You went a little fast and some aspects of the course are a bit old now. I had to figure out a few extra things that changed such as the propTypes importing. Thanks for the course! Overall it was a good intro into react native
TUt needs updating to current react native version and modules.
It's delivered at the perfect level for people beginning React Native and setting up their first React Native project.
I wouldn't say this is exactly missing from this presentation--as I said, I like the level as is--but I've had difficulty in my 3 React Native projects on the native side of things. For me that happens to be on Android. But I'm wondering if there might be some way to point to resources that people can read or view so they can inform and familiarize themselves with getting around XCode or Android Studio. Again, I understand that is beyond what's intended for this course.
Subtitles are missing, but it's not a big problem. I appreciated the clear and simplified setting of the project.
I really like that the author specifies the correct versions of each package to install and every single step needed, so then there is no surprises of non-compatible packages and obscure errors. He speaks very clearly and calmly. Excellent communicator!
I like everything, but i want more info about context in lesson handling errors.
Very thorough and great way of walking through the material to build it up.
The modal that your IDE keeps up as you type code makes it difficult to follow along with you - it frequently covers code I'm trying to read to keep up with you. I'm following along, and doing every module, and that is the biggest time-sink. I have to pause the lesson, scan to a point in the video where what I need to see is not covered, and then jump back (or let it play through) to where I was. It seems like you were good, or better, about closing that modal earlier on. The end of Module 3 and some of Module 4 seemed to have the most egregious transgressions. This and the fact that some of the code is now a little dated. Those are the only two complaints I have. I easily have 3 or 4 times as many compliments for you. I will take the time to write those out once I've finished all the lessons that I've purchased.
This is the type of tutorial/course that I've been looking for, creating an application from scratch with enough basic things about React Native, so later on I can use this project as an example.
I (and many developers ) have had alot of problems with tab navigators combined with stacknavigator and switchnavigator. The course is outdated in that matter as some of the stuff have been renamed changed. The example that I had an issue during developement was an app with a simple two tab structure, but the tab bar would be on top and on top of that a header bar with centered logo and a sign out button on the right ( switch navigator would crash the app).
But overall really nice course.
Pretty thorough course overall. Goes through many of the things you need to get up to speed on when building a react native application. There are also quite a few nuggets that add a pretty nice touch to the user experience such as animations and displaying alerts using higher order components (HOCs).
My only gripe with this course is that a few interesting tidbits were glossed over where a little more explanation could have been given, e.g. when setting up alerts using HOCs.
Some things are not clear how and why...
I like the way that you explain things. Great Man...!
I will give it 5 stars if it was not for outdated script that you put in the video.
- I liked how each module was structured to introduce important concepts such as animation, routing, designing for android vs iOS, etc.
- There weren't too many concepts introduced too soon, tutorial was well paced.
- Liked how in the later tutorials the mock ups and component interactions were introduced to allow us to build the component without needed to go through the tutorial to understand all the functionality required.
- I'm nitpicking here, but I would have appreciated a little more explanation or even references to the error handling components. Felt a little too much like "copy and paste this code, it works". That being said I appreciate that this was a more advanced feature and this is a beginner course.
Learning a lot of different things at once is nice, routes.js and the different stacknavigators do get tedious and kind of confusing.
I like the way you give the lessons step by step, so I understand about redux and redux-saga well. i just do not like the error when xde is hanging. there are less, may be added search. thanks for the lesson, I really like and I appreciate it. *sorry for my english :v*
Amazing course, helped me a lot to understand how to structure a project and how to split component to make them re-usable ! Thanks :D
Maybe, I miss more information about publishing the App in Expo. But, In general terms I'm very happy with this course because I've learnt a lot
git repo of the finished app would be very time saving, otherwise 5
It's awesome so far :)
Why not use styled-components instead EStyleSheet?
It was good
How to eject the App, and sign it so you could upload it to Google Play
The course content is great. However, some of the typing was too fast and requires a student to pause the video or go backwards to see what was typed.
Another thing would be the speed of the course. Due to the fact that the teacher was experienced, some of the stuff were sped through (such as during the Redux and Redux Saga modules), it requires the student to pause and think about what is going on.
- What is the difference between the 'CHANGE_QUOTE_CURRENCY' vs the method changeQuoteCurrency()?
- What is difference between using state.XXX in a screen file vs using action.XXX in a reducer file?
The Redux modules were a little complex and it is understandable that this course would not go through them. However, due to the briefness, it would require the student to read up and understand more about Redux before attending this lesson.
Overall, the course was great and opened an eye for the world of React Native, coming from a student who has done pure native work in Obj-C and Swift.
I liked the way the course is designed to give both conceptual and hands-on practice. Highly recommend for beginners or people who are planning to work with react-native. Would love if you could add some assignments or conceptual quizzes.
the tutorial is detail, which is very good. I follow this tutorial in 2018, some codes in the video has deprecated.
Only teaches the things he's doing and the way he's doing. Should also tell the other ways to do it, the other options available etc.
A little fast, sometimes unclear why you chose what you did, I wish I understood more rather than copying quite a bit.
Can you add more currencies to your own api account (fixer.io) like 'MAD' and more ... Thank u. Best regards,
I love that you're putting this stuff out there for free. It's been a year since you originally recorded and released this course, and I've found comments along the way which have helped me bridge any changes due to dependencies, etc. Overall great content.
My one feedback is you are great at multitasking (talking and typing). Which is a great skill in a job setting when pair-programming, I imagine, but not so much when I'm trying to code-along with you. I would consider explaining and talking about what you're about to do, and then typing it out. I would also advise turning off the parameterHints in VS Code when you're typing, because they're quite annoying when it covers what you just typed, so instead of pausing I have to rewind.
Anyway. Those are rather minor things, compared to the much-appreciated value you are providing. Thank you.
Everything was precise and nice
validation part is missing,
Great Quality Content. However sometime its very hard to follow the code, because some of the function from VS code were blocking it, and when its unblock, you have already move to a different section in the code.
Update courses with latest version ;)
overall it's great tutorial.. a must tutorial for our team..
but, little error.. proptypes error.. should import PropTypes from 'prop-types'l
I like the scope of the course. Since your avoid explaining a lot of what you do, I think this course is perfect for people who already have some experience with React and want to see an application build live.
I didn't like that you avoided explaining the alert part. I do not like that you are using expo.
I like that you explain most of the sintaxis, functionalities and a lot of other stuffs. It's good for beginners to understand the concepts and how to use it, keep doing it. I didn't like when you don't show a the end of the lesson how is going look on android and it's functionality, because not all of us have a macbook to run iOS emulator, it doesn't happen always but some lessons don't have that review.
Thanks again, it's a pretty good course.
Well explained very detailed
Everything great, would be nice to see explantion for AlertProvider and connectAlert
everything is good
Great, I've totally satisfied!!
The course is very useful for me, thanks!
Its a real time example, good explanations on right way of doing things. I like it so much
I really appreciate this tutorial for its neat project structure the most. And the tutorial video duration is perfect(i.e, not too long). The instructor also has a great teaching talent.
liked everything about this course. the way of explanation and the module structuring, especially the folder organization is awesome.
I'm Missing more of such courses ;). Please upload new courses on Udemy ASAP. Thanks a lot! :)
Though some things were outdated (not unexpected), I thought the course was very well done. Thanks for your time and know-how.
could you also integrate rx observable ?
What did I Like:
The module is very well structured with a beautiful illustration. I am completely impressed with your teaching specifically on the app designing principle/concepts.
Thank you very much for your selfless amazing knowledge sharing, which is going to be definitely help me in structuring/designing my apps.
I am definitely giving thumbs up for this course and I love/honour to become a student of you.
Lots of handson stuff
Configure Navigation in react
everything was good
The list of the VSC extensions could have been hyperlinked to the marketplace website for the extension to read about it and see which one you're exactly using. It could also have been good to explain how to pull your configuration using gist. I liked how you show the CLI for prettier and ESLint before showing the extensions.
I like this course very much, but I think I didn't understand completely the 'react-navigation' part. However I'll have a look to the egghead course in order to improve and learn the concepts.
There was a lack of comments in the example code which made it unnecessarily difficult to understand code that wasn't explained in the course.
I liked this course, I speak a bit English but I understood the lessons, I missed some patterns design react, but generally its great course. I hope to take others coursers.
Best React Native Course I have taken up so far... well taught all the concepts uptil now and module division is perfect.
When will you release your other courses on RN on Udemy. Waiting for it.
I like your structure and way of teaching. Missing is last lecture "Handling Errors" I didn't understand anything how its working I just copy and paste code from your github file and I dont like to skip anything.
Excellent course - thanks very much for making this available for free. I took me as a beginner to React through every step to completing a solid, attractive and useful app.
Really detailed and well explained course!
The whole structure is pretty solid, a good pace as well
course is great, but subtitle is missing
Great course! Perfect for setting up your machine and getting an overal understanding to start a React Native project.
as a beginner, i felt this course really easy to understand and follow. really appreciate your hard work put behind this.
Until I liked everything here I'm a beginner RN developer and this course is helping me a lot.
Content is good
I really like the consistent practice. Folding styles are also great.
Liked Everything. Will definitely visit back to solidify the concepts. Thanks for the amazing course.
I would have appreciated going over the alert component, even briefly
Congrats for this course. I bought one however I decided to take this free first to understand the way you set a project. I would like to suggest you to set the sound up a little more.
It's always been an issue for me to set up a react native project from scratch, this was really helpful, I like the folder structuring
Repeat Practicing made the difference
how to setup lint in windows is missing. i was using CRNA but not esilint files are installed by default.
Very neat explanation. I've tried React Native course in many other websites and i would say this is the best and most up-to-date course. After this course, you feel confident, ready and well equipped to get start with your real world app. Many thanks to the instructor!
I like how super organized your workflow is! I am going to adopt it. :+1: I wish if you have covered more complex navigation scenarios, like when I don't want for the user to go back to a previous screen. The scenario for that is when on-boarding a new user through a wizard that is displayed only once.
Very detailed guide. would like to (eventually) find out about ConnectAlert & AlertProvider though.
Dude, this course you put together is awesome :D
it was all great! i loved it! thnx for your amazing work!
Android Statusbar issues ie. its not quite as beautiful as IOS... always seems to be a slight modification needed, be nice to solve this globally.
I like that your explanation was very concise. However, I got very confused when entering the redux module. Fortunately, the way you explained while doing the code helped me a lot to grasp a bit about the redux concept.
Overall, I find this course helpful.
I like how informative you explain about the process taken and the thinking process throughout the course. That way, I am able to grasp the concept to use the react native tool. Overall, i still don't find any missing or anything which I dislike so far (until this module).
I'm completely new to coding, and I found your descriptions and explanations to very clear and easy to follow.
There nothing to dislike till now. Every lesson is deeply and well-understandable.
This is the most concise course I've found on the internet, a complete package. I am an android/java developer and just started react native. Through this course, though I'm not done yet, helped me and saved a lot of time. I did not have to look for tutorials of commonly used modules(e.g. navigation, redux) since it's already here. I hope, if you have time, you'll include hoist-non-react-statics in this course, since you have used it in module 4 (handling errors). It's the one thing that I don't fully understand.
Excellent course. Learned lot of things. Thank you for the course.
I like how it shows every detail.
The course was easy to follow, and it didn't copy and paste large sections of the code, I coded alongside the course and it was really helpful for a beginner dev learning React.
As a course for beginner, its really comprehensive and nice folder structure, very well organized
First: Thank you, I think for now its covering the static needs for an application, will continue to learn more, thanks again ;)
It's awersome course. I think, everything is great.
i was expect you to deal with the remote api in depth, but you just pass by it.
also i expect you to show how to publish on app store, i ll try to find it out.
anyway thanks for your efforts.
if you see this review, i hope you just send me a reply to keep in touch.
I like that the core concepts are presented in a fast and easy way. The course covers all the basics for a begginer or intermediate developer.
VIdeos are great, but written text is important for a student to take a moment and slow things down and think.
Moves very fast, but it is better than it moving too slowly.
The course was made a year ago, and amost libraries are updated, and do not match what we see in the lessons.
so, sometimes i need to take a break, search on google, and come back there.
for the begginers is most likely a problem ... so, is it.
I've been impressed enough to purchase both the "Additional Exercises" and the "Production Ready" courses. I NEVER pay for things that I can get for free, but there isn't anything even close to the caliber of these courses out there.
One thing that is missing; total run time for each module and for the entire course. It's listed for each individual topic within a module (and I like that they are concise), but I'm trying to estimate how long it will take me to get through this course plus the two I just purchased.
I like the course please do free more courses for me thanks in advance
It's said "new" but someone should have known how to understand this course. The react navigation and style is so less to understand, and using yarn instead of npm is a mystery, like "why yarn is a default here?
I think the value you bring is perfect:) Will be a fan & customer for ever!
I love the way everything is explained in detail and all well set up to be in sequence. Its my first experience with react native but i found myself building alot of the features before looking at the code. The only part where i had a little bit of an issue was with redux-saga. I found myself typing code i really didn't understand what it was doing. But overall it was awesome
I'm a product designer with a limited JS / React background - at times the tutorial is a bit fast for me but ultimately this course has been super rewarding. I'm simultaneously reading the O'Reilly "Learning React Native" book and between the two resources, I feel like I've gained a ton of great React Native knowledge. Looking forward to learning Redux - I've always struggled a good deal with wrapping my head around those concepts. Thanks for the killer course!
I like how you introduce the content to understand what is required in a very short time, its the student job to dive in!
I would have like to seen a video about using Redux, since I'm still confused as to how it fits in to all this.
The fact that many libraries are depricated and it make me go back another time to fix them.
I really love the real world approach of this course. It'd be wonderful to update the course to use new APIs and note about deprecated methods. However the course is already incredibly amazing.
I really love the way you cover as much topics as possible without letting things for a paid course.
Thanks countlessly Spencer 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Nothing, for an introductory course, it is pretty good.
Depth on each topic was fantastic. It would be nice to know a little about authentication, how to separate authentication vs non-authentication flows.
Loved the way topic has been explained. It would have been great if you had involved the authentication feature aswell.
Needed to find a workaround on some things, like <Image> no been able to have children anymore, After completed the Saga part i was not able to change the quote currency anymore, could not figure a solution to it yet.
It's very good course
The delivery is very good. The tests are extremely basic. I don't think that this would be enough testing to put this particular application into production. We haven't tested any of our sagas for example.
Publishing to the app stores, ejecting, why not use Expo XDE
The course is excellent, I loved it! Something I didn't like was setting up and implementing redux-saga. Seems way over complicated compared to redux-thunk. I'd prefer using redux-thunk on this project.
This tutorial is awesome, I like it. I use different RN version and environment, so some things I get is wrong. But I love to find the solutions. Nice!
Мне все понравилось спасибо за это
Your concerne with code quality/organization was impressive. I missed 2 things - how to use Expo APIs and how to package the apps for distribution
It was a great course I liked the redux section the best
I have actually been liking a lot of this course so far. Nothing to complain about. Good pacing, good explanation.
I am a fan of the project directory organization. It's simple and advanced at the same time.
The application building and the content presented is amazing. The content can be moving a little too fast at certain times while coding along.
about 4 years ago
great pace, really clear examples, builds me along and doesn't ask me to accept too much "magic" to get something working
how can i call this.props.navigation.navigate in action file,
in my app, as soon as i signIn from firebase, i navigate to another screen,
so my question is how to navigate in action file ??
I like the way you divide step, content
I think it is better if you can add more resources in the comment below video. And can you make subtitle for videos?
I love the way the teacher takes his time to explain the details of what he is doing. Its incredibly well explained.
Everything, I like everything in this tutorial. Well explained.
I like so much because this is practical course, is direct to the point.
it explains everything
i'm so good, but something i understand: in lesson Handling Errors
I am not sure what was missing, but I did wonder if anything was out-of-date.
Covering all the basics stuff in a very organized manner.
I liked the introduction to redux-saga, made it seem less scary. The workflow used by Spencer is really great and makes sense. The accompanying repo needs to be updated in one or two places, but mostly still works great.
Great overall pacing and easy to understand. The only thing that bugged me sometimes as I followed along was the VSCode popups over the mouse cursor that obscured the code as I was trying to follow along.
You introduce many concepts of react native in easy way to understand
Everything easy to understand. But, would be great if you have more example for redux use middleware.
very clear explanations, breaking down components / process into small steps
so clearly explain and the very clean code that the instructor writes
it is super cool and I liked the way you are teaching it and same time give practice shot to it. Yeah, the missing is the explanation on some parts which I know can't be possible in this course.
Overall Course was good, missing the landscape mode setup
I like that the course was more than a beginner introduction
Your teaching was exceptional. I liked the way you explained the concepts and how to apply them.
I did not like the repetition with import and export in the different index files.
Would have loved to see the alert provider part explanation.
Can't think of anything bad at the moment
I like the course. It is concise and substantial. Thanks!
The course has been very comprehensive and the repetition of building components is helpful in developing some muscle memory. I've also found your teaching style easy to follow and the length of your videos keeps me engaged.
Pacing and incremental advancement is very good. How the content is delivered is great, and your workflow is really awesome. Having so many files named index.js can be confusing, but I guess its good practice. Updating the repo with the KeyboardAvoidingView component would be great.
It is simple too understand and covers the basics when starting a new project... i like that
I liked how you explain everything so clearly. It's been a pleasure to follow along so far.
You cover all the basics that we need to start working with RN, good job!
Updated code would be nice in some cases, like in Animated module, when now Image withing Image is not longer possible
The way you describe the lesson is so good
simple course with everything important is included.
Great course overall. Thank you!
Modules (lectures) are very well organized. It would be nice to talk about how nom packages are installed (global vs local, versioned vs latest) for us React & nom noobs. Not sure if you have control over this web app... but allowing comments by students to allow information to be passed regarding a lesson would be nice.
Great in depth course, marred by recent framework changes, but super cool
This course was quite straight to the point and gave me the experience of what it would be like to create a robust and complete app from scratch.
I did however find it difficult to understand what part some of the imports had within the app, since there were so many imports that had to be made, which weren't explained very much. This isn't too much of a problem, since there are many online resources where we can read up on the material, so I found the overall course very helpful. Thanks for such a wonderful course!
cool: tips and tricks, not cool: too much time showing/typing basic styles
A great tutorial covering the main principles, very well explained. After this tutorial you are able to create a great app with many features. The only 'negative ' observation is about redux, and redux saga, that this tutorial is not explaining very well.
Loved the course so far. I found it to be the best React Native course available. The best part about the course is that it focuses more on modularity, code reuse, and best-practices regardless of their requirements(eg. PropTypes). Nothing to complain so far. This course answers all my doubts until module 4. I'll catch on the rest of the modules in next few days. Thanks again for the free course.
I like properly scheduling of file.
Good end-to-end coverage of using React-Native in the whole React ecosystem (Redux ect).
There are some RN codes that you didn't explained well or skipped to explain so i have to re-read the code in order to understand it. Overall a good course for a newbie like me :)
Love the course. In the very beginning it was difficult to understand how you got the QR Code after bootstrapping the react native app. I wasn't sure if I was missing a package or not. I very quickly tried to run npm start and then it worked but some may feel stuck at that point.
i had an issue on android while i was following this course on youtube with the logo resize, I decided for now to skip it and maybe later on, I will revisit and try to fix it (the error occurred after importing Animated from react-native) also I would like to mention that I am install npm packages without the specified version you have on your video. again i will come to that error and share/ask for a work around :)
Really loved it, amazing content for free
It would have been interesting to cover state persistence. I imagine it's being wiped-off everytime the app is closed or at least updated.
Project Structure.... not explaining the very basics
Hey! Firstly, thanks for creating this really cool tutorial. I like how you covered all the basic components to get started with. I would have liked it more if you had explained about the AlertProvider component. But again, this is me just nitpicking. If you're making a tutorial on Advance concepts, I would like to know about it.
I like the pace and the structure of the information layout. Also all the information needed to complete the course are readily available
This is a fantastic intro to React Native. Best free course I've ever taken!
Amazing Spencer! I am a big fan of you and you deserve a big thumbs up for this free tutorial! This is a really good intro into building a fully functioning react-native app! I coded along and everything worked seamlessly. After watching an episode I've tried to code the episode without actually copying the code over and it has taught me a lot about ES6 and react-native.
I'm loving the course so far. I took this course to learn more about react-navigation, stackNavigator, and redux which this gave me a pretty good basis so far. I'm currently building an app where I purchased the rnfirebase package. it's using react-navigation, stackNavigator, and redux so I'm looking forward to the redux module as well. But I'm completely lost with how they navigate from screen to screen as I can't figure out how they're doing it. Hopefully after this course I'll know more about it and will be able to get on my way!
I really liked this course because I'm learning all about RN but is important to know the best way to setup the environment, tools and basic projects. Thanks!!
Everything is clearly defined from starting to end I was trying to learn React-native since last 15 days but I was not able to clear many things but now I am clear about my concepts and things.
All the course was very good, clearly explicated!
I like folder structure you are created, it's very easy and your explanation technique is super super awesome :-). Thanks for this course. It's very helpful to newbie like me.
The best thing about this course, although It's outdated, I've never had an problem because lecturer always had an notes for me to keep me updated. Thanks!
To the point stuff,,, Little bit difficult for newbies... Proper explanation of the very basic stuff is missin
there should be a link to the detailed explanation of the alert component
I liked the baby steps! Especially for people who are lost when it comes to configurations and how to setup things and what architecture to follow. Also the recommendations were very useful , made me more curious. Over all a Good guide to start with.
Exercises? Let the student try to do something and then in the next video or perhaps a link, check the proposed answer.
Good job! Careful with using floating point for handling currency, but not a big issue in this demo app.
you are talking very fast . i like the way you organized the project. its great. And its a good introduction .
did't like to be on my own when it's supposably straightforward... and the fact that it's not up to date
Very instructive, I love the detail and the videos. You speak about each step as you perform it, no dead silence and I feel like everything you say is beneficial in the course. Might like mention of other preferences or options that you may consider when using things (different packages or ways to go about things, or atleast why you choose one way over another. Like, why expo over something else, or redux).
I like the details explanation about react and its related modules. The "fixer.io" API is deprecated so I cannot full-fill 100% currency Converter App.
I liked that it showed building a full app with some aspects of complexity in it. I've build RN apps before, but this showed a few things that were great to learn about and makes me want to implement in other ways.
It's not super easy to go back in the material and refresh your brain (I look at GitHub code changes), but coding along with what's happening works really good for me!
Hi, I like the voice clarity and full control of the code for ios android.Please Add English subtitles also.
I like the amount of content, I absolutely love that it's step by step. Very thorough. This is very well put together. I really have enjoyed the tutorial so far. I think the only thing I would have liked was a little more up to date code, though I'm not 100% sure how, you've done well at indicating where things were deprecated but the questions in the back of my mind are: 'How he's doing this, is it standard recommended practice? Is it outdated? How does it differ from React (not native)
I'm following this tutorial without using Expo, so some dependencies have to be installed manually and I had some troubles with that at first, for example the one with the icons from Ionic. Other than that this is a perfect course so far especially considering the price (free :D). Will definitely recommend this to my friends!
everything was clear to understand
I did like all course.
i love everything about the tutorials its too good for free and i appreciate your effort because you set me on track beyond my expectations already
explanation is great, video player could be much user-friendly, maybe have few min forward and backward button, the JS hint blocks the recent code so it's not hard to write and watch at the same time.
This course make things simple to learn, step by step every lecture easy to practice. Thank you very much
I like how the course goes in all the different parts of building a fully functional app. The speed is good especially since I have taken a few courses on react. I actually when through the course twice, first by the just watching the videos and then follow along to build the project.
Although certain components are not fully explained, I found it actually good since it allowed me to go and read the documentation and learn everything that was possible with such component.
As to what can be improved or added I would say include how to set up xcode simulator, but I did figured out myself.
Also the Eslint set up part was confusing for to set up, I ended up not including it in my project, something I need to get my head around. I am not too concerned about it though, I will get at some point.
Overall this is the course I needed to build the app for the webapp I am working on.
I am deeply grateful to have found this course on Youtube while checking the new features of react 16.3 a.k.a context api :).
Really good and nicely paced course! Just the right amount of content to get started with app development using React Native. What makes it really better is that you get to learn the best practices of using React Navigation too.
Great introduction into react-native/redux.
Great tutorials, well paced. Thank you !
I loved everything about it. It is very clear that a lot of effort has been put into producing this course.
I liked that you went to good detail regarding UI/UX of an Application, but would have liked it if you could have possibly went more in depth on react-navigation, as for me that is one of the most common blocker.
great tutorial, easy to understand
so far so good
I'm french and you are very understandable! All the courses are really good explain. Thanks a lot
great for beginners
I like all course until here, It is amazing, It would complete if we have lecture with TabNavigation :-)
I get this error in "Handling Errors" part:
Invariant Violation: React.Children.only expected to receive a single React element child.
This error is located at:
in AlertProvider (at index.js:30)
in Unknown (at renderApplication.js:35)
in RCTView (at View.js:78)
in View (at AppContainer.js:102)
in RCTView (at View.js:78)
in View (at AppContainer.js:122)
in AppContainer (at renderApplication.js:34)
Previously, I comment about error "Invariant Violation: React.Children.only expected to receive a single React element child."
But, I think there's a typo in this line:
export default () => <AlertProvider><Navigator /></AlertProvider>;
It's running find by now.
Very nice tutorial. I find it very helpful. But it must be updated as it is a little bit old by now ...
I like everything so far.
I wanna see more complex navigation tools i.e drawers tab views etc
This was an excellent course from start to finish! I loved the attention to detail and constant explanations of what was being done and why. I also loved that it (mostly) evolved as a real project would, with some stuff being done a certain way to start, and then changing it as the project grew.
Very a good course) In my opinion was one defect. You have not specified how the Alert library will be applied(installed).
There are times you can speed thru a section of typing, causing me to pause more frequent, but overall it is a great at making me understand react-native so far.
Structure: everything has good chronological sequence, maybe would be good add links or to mention another approaches for same problem.
every thing awesome, very well explained
The teacher and the content is great!
I liked how the course has been structured. looks simple but contains all things which I need to know. learned a lot of new libraries and practices.
First, huge thanks for creating this video series! I really like the major concepts that you have covered including usage of other libraries like extended stylesheets, moment, color, etc.
1. A slower pace of first component video might help few people. I had to read few docs to understand how the code is working. Pace of subsequent videos is perfect as they build on the same approach
2. Maybe a section on setting up iOS simulator & Android emulator will be helpful. Testing app live on expo is really cool but simulators on laptop may add more convenience. This is my first time building an App and I am struggling with simulator setups
I would love to hear more about Flow and TypeScript.
Good amount of application design, tool setup, react native foundations front end mostly. Maybe in another course you could deal how to handle databases or cloud services like Realm, Firebase RTDB, Firebase Firestore (one of them maybe).
Love to see app using GraphQL and firebase
Really good tutorial. I found it very helpful. The only thing I want to mention is that it needs to be updated to newer version of packages, because there are some breaking changes.
Very simple and effective course at the same time. Sometimes I had a trouble with modules while I passed through this course (@expo/vector-icons is still show an error "unable to resolve module").
Are you planning to make a tutorial using WEBRtc or you already have one?
Special thanks for your work. Now I'm thinking to complete one of your paid courses.
Fantastic job in explaining the basics! I'd like to actually try out some stuff when organising the project and configuring navigation, but that is probably covered in your exercise book or another course. Thanks!
Please, speak more about Best Practices.
So far, I feel like this has been an amazing course, especially for being free. In-depth, just complex enough, and has some decent features to get you thinking about how React Native works. Great work!
it would be nice to talk about how to insert your own component to a header. Thanks a lot
Everything you say is very clear. Just too little. But it's okay, that's enough basic knowledge to learn. Thank you very much!
Great, concise and effective, make more of these please.
It was spot on for a beginner. It would be better if you had suggested some UI libraries.
I like teaching way
Spencer awesome job thank you, great teacher, you have helped me so much, no critiques of content or organization, please keep it up
i did like the simplicity of delivering the information :)
Wow, you take each piece from the application and explain very well how it is built.
Like : - The way you explain and every time you were writing so that helped me to find errors because i was also writing along with the video. Missing : - For a beginner i guess nothing .
Application and Instructor
The 'Handling Errors' lesson feels out of place. Too quick without proper explanation. Otherwise a fantastic course.
everything was great.. drawer navigation was missing
Very well explained and at an excellent pace. Slightly difficult to follow on a windows machine.
Very good lectures. A bit complicated for me as I am new to react and react native and redux but I will sure come back to these videos. The fact that all the code was available helped a lot. Thanks a lot!
Great course thanks! I'd really like something about how to go about building APK file. Do you have anything you could send over by any chance?
Great course, can't wait to get started now!
Very nice so far... Enjoying it :)
I like the new libs that I didn't know yet, I'm also quite new to React Native so it was nice to see you at work with some best practices in mind. I guess the thing I missed was React Native Web because I'm struggling with that a bit but there are other resources for that and it probably doesn't fit in this course either.
Very clear and well explained ideas.
I liked everything about this course. I would love to see some db syncing maybe in the background. redux-persist maybe and localization things would be amazing
I was lost on redux-saga part. Need to go through again. Having said that, fantastic tutorial. Thanks, man!!
i have been building with react native for a whole year, but i had been over complicating things.. this tutorial has helped me simplify and even arrange my projects better.. I have an upcoming talk am giving on the basics when building with react native, and i took this tutorial as a refresher and am happy i did
Super explanations. Should have slow down a bit. I had to rewind again again.
Great Coding Structure. Add more free course on react native fundamental (From zero to hero)
Honestly, this course has everything. Instructor is very clear with his explanations and I feel like I know everything I need to know. I also love how the instructor catches issues before they happen. Avoids a lot of stress. Thank you!
I like that you're keeping it up to date, so the tutorial won't break
I've loved every bit! Just the part where you skipped AlertProvider... Great tutorial!
The course is great. The only issues I have are that you talk and type pretty fast so it is hard to keep up with you and understand at the same time because you don't really explain much. You tend to do say we need to do this and this is how but you don't explain why it is necessary or what it is actually doing. The other issue is it is a little outdated. I have run into a couple issues due to this. However, this is a free course so it is amazing.
very well structured course materials
I like how many different topics the course covers.
A great course for a react-native beginner that touches on all topics that one needs to know to get started. Especially redux and redux-sagas that are used almost all the time, but never discussed in beginner tutorials. One point of confusion for beginners is why CRNA is needed, what Expo is and what the alternative is (e.g., react-native init). Just a brief note about those to clear the confusion would be beneficial.
Love the course. It's great to get the basics and even more.
Sometimes the course feels like it was meant for people with a know in React and not for beginners, sorry if that was the intent. But for me I'm a beginner in React-native
It helped me to get to know how to work with enzyme and redux-mock-store. Could be better if there would be more complex mockings to help out in real life apps.
Very good course, much better than many RN that I've paid for. Can't think of anything offhand that would improve it.
Great jumping-off point for building apps. Especially like the tip on EStyleSheet
Not too much...not too little. Leaves me wanting more.
Good quick overview
I've tried to learn react throught different tutorials online, yours is perfect, clean and very professionnal. I'm new with react and I've never seen the way you build your components and it's very powerful ! Thank's a lot :) !
the yarn install prettier stuff felt very rushed through and did not cover how to correct if for some reason it does not work.
It is a good course and i like it. thanks
Course is good to start RN development but its get confusing at the end , must try it once to learn the basics, I learned a lot new stuff.
It would be nice if you could include subtitle in your video.
It's slowly getting out of date. Nothing major so far, comments sometimes help with those issues.
So far the course is well structured, and it covers a lot of topics I need for the app I'm trying to build. I feel like the 1x playback speed is too fast to code along, while the 0.5 is too slow. On YouTube I often use the 0.75 times. Any chance you could integrate this into the video player?
I like his tips and advice on how to organize a RN project
The stack navigator was a bit difficult to figure out. But that's awesome, anyway! Thank you so much!!!
I like how up-to-date the course is. Also I like how it gets you up and running quickly. I didn't like that I had to install eslint again after initialising it. I don't know why this extra step was necessary for me. I exactly followed your steps.
A bit more detailed overview of error handeling, maybe a module about it.
Great free course
This is a great course so far, really teaches me best practices and how components work.
It was great - I've learnt so much with reproducing the app, thank you!
all its good but may be different version in video & react-native new vertion
Great course for beginners and it is very understandable and clear
It's great, I'm picking up lots of useful new tips and tricks for future projects.
The course is great! I wish was updated for the latest version of the tools used, but that's just nitpicking. I understand the amount of work that goes into creating a course like this.
I liked the way you managed to go through every concept, For real I learned a lot. I wish I could get another tutorial of yours, explaining redux in more details
As of Feb 2018 it needs an update. Excellent instructions and clear explanations.
I like the way everything was clear, you managed to type all codes so that we can see and understand everything. Plus, the way you organize your code is truly transcendent. I have learned many things, not only react-native, but also different coding tips and techniques.
This is really professional course. Parts of applications are well broken down. The only this that is more extra is that some components or codes seems a bit too complex for beginners to understand (they are more like codes you use when you become more experienced with react). Else is great.
Like, the way you explain and go through, no like: is not 100% updated
A very good beginners tutorial
There were situations where since the tools had been updated the code in the videos were no longer valid, or there were discrepancies between the videos and the code on the github.
The other issue I had with the videos were that sometimes you would be typing and things would pop up and get in the way of the text.
Other than that, the content was great, extremely informative and very clear.
Code organization. Just to create a single select list there is a log of efforts. Just a first timer review.
I liked the overall structure. but was a little disappointed that topics like react-navigation where not explained i detail like "how to setup your minimal boilerplate" had to check it out myself
