React is currently the hottest javascript framework out there. And shockingly it had no usergroup here in Berlin. But luckily this changed last week with the first meeting of React Berlin in our office.

The room was packed and everyone looked forward to the three talks. All three of them targeted beginners, so if you are new to the framework, those talks are a great point to start looking into it. And with the react native talk the night ended with one of the most promising things of the react world.

If you have missed it, we have recordings of all three talks below. Have fun watching them!

Let’s build a React Native app in 20 minutes

Peter Magenheimer, front end developer at ResearchGate.

In this talk, Peter will attempt to port a not-so-tiny React app to iOS. Live. 6 days after the release of React Native… and with approximately 0 years of previous experience in native mobile development. What could possibly go wrong?
