Implementations of the virtual DOM allow developers to create and maintain UI components using entirely declarative interfaces that completely abstract away the real DOM.

Fiery Reactions: A Mobile ReactJS Ecosystem with Firebase

By |2017-01-14T09:12:01-05:00January 14th, 2017|

Facebook has given us React Native, a javascript platform for building native applications with native look and feel. Google has given us Firebase, a backend system that provides authentication, data storage, hosting, analytics, notifications, and more. And, of course, Apple gave us the iPhone. In this talk, we'll use these technologies from these tech giants together to rapidly build a robust mobile application and deploy it to a device. We'll see how much faster it is to avoid building out a backend entirely, and we'll see the advantages of a multi-platform tool over native code in mobile development.

Xamarin helps C# developers become native iOS, Android, and Windows mobile app developers overnight. In this session, you'll learn how to leverage your existing .NET and C# skills to create iOS and Android mobile apps in Visual Studio with Xamarin. Besides letting you write your iOS and Android apps in C#, Xamarin lets you reuse existing .NET libraries and share your business logic across iOS, Android, and Windows apps. This session will also give you the tools to determine how much existing C# code can go mobile to iOS and Android, plus help you determine the architecture necessary to support [...]
