React Native training
Getting real with React Native
Looking to build modern mobile apps with React Native?
This 3-day course will teach you the basics of React Native mobile app development with leading libraries including React-Navigation, Redux and an introduction to GraphQL.
Developers and companies that adopt them now will have a competitive advantage over the coming years and will be well-positioned to take advantage of advances in this rapidly-evolving ecosystem.
Learn by doing
You’ll be coding right from the start. You’ll learn 10x more by doing than you would by watching PowerPoint slides.
We’ll build an app designed to cover all of the essential areas for building real applications with GraphQL, dealing with real-world issues that we’ve encountered working with large and complex apps for OK GROW!’s clients.
At each step you’ll be taught the concept, given the next goal and the basic outline of the solution, and you’ll work to build the next feature into your own version of the app with one-on-one guidance from the instructors.
Then we’ll regroup and explore the instructors’ solution (which you have access to on GitHub). At the end you’ll have the full working app.
- ES2015 Fundamentals
- Understand what React Native is and what is its architecture
- Grasp what tools the ecosystem can offer
- Interaction & state management in React
- Make the app more modular with higher-order components
- Use lifecycle events to consume REST API data
- Handle navigation between screens
- Understand why and when to use a state management library like Redux
- Understand the benefits of a GraphQL API from the client’s perspective
The cost for the full 3-day course is $1395 CAD

Why take in-person training?
You can definitely learn on your own. But many people find that they learn faster and more deeply in a group learning environment.
You’ll be exposed to tools, ideas and best practices without needing to sort through outdated and incorrect information.
We’ll show you techniques learned from our client work, guide you through advanced topics, and stay in touch after with one-on-one follow-up.
Have you been meaning to learn React Native for a while? Maybe now is the time. Draw a line in the sand. Register now.
What our students say
Loved the training! Really enjoyed the interactivity and hands-on nature of it. The checkpoints with git worked really well to help reset + reorient everyone.
– Adam M.
Awesome class, I felt like there was just enough gaps in the exercises to educate us on the topic but not overwhelm us. It was perfect. Not sure if this is a bad thing but I really wanted more.

Fine print: We make plans based on the enrollment and spend money in advance, so we can’t offer refunds after 48 hours. We know that things come up unexpectedly though, so if you need to change your plans after that then we would be happy to give you a credit for the next time we offer it (which is usually every couple of months).
