React Native is a popular framework created by Facebook for building native iOS and Android apps using Javascript.  It's a fantastic way to get started building mobile apps, especially if you already have some experience with web development.  In addition, it is possible to build and prototype an iOS app using a Windows or Linux machine, so everyone can join in the fun!

This talk will focus on the basic building blocks of a typical React Native app.  We will build the app together, so please feel free to bring your own mobile device and laptop to the talk so that you can follow along.
