Learn By Doing: React Native

with Maps

About the Book

Are you bored with working through dreary tutorials and reading page after page of dry theoretical content to learn a new technology?

What if you had a motivating reason to get through the material?

This book gives you just that: a small React Native project that you build from scratch, with enough functionality to keep it interesting. "Learn By Doing: React Native with Maps" introduces you to a number of important React Native development tools and concepts, including navigation, Expo, and Google Maps SDK.
