BEYOND REACT NATIVE
Mobile apps are everywhere, React Native helps to build them easier. But is there a life beyond React Native? If you want to know how to speed up mobile apps development, join us at our event!

Gestures and animations are a broad subject where an advanced development and a complex logic meets very high UX requirements, and these encounters appear to…
React Native’s libraries ecosystem constantly grows and you can achieve more and more just writing JS code. However, sometimes you may encounter an API or a library that hasn’t been exported to RN environment yet. What to do?
In this workshop we’ll build “Traveler“, a serverless GraphQL React Native app that includes features like user-authentication & fine-grained access control.
More than 15 Speakers and Workshop’s Hosts
from 3 continents
gathered in one place.
A full day of React Native & Expo workshops to boost your skills, and enjoy benefits of rapid mobile apps development with Expo.
Be inspired, share your ideas and enjoy two days of learning and networking in creative environment.
Rapid development of mobile apps
A closer look into the future
App.js is a base. It is a place, where every React Native developer feels secure. Attend App.js Conf and meet people that joined the React Native Team at the very beginning. Talk to the authors of your favorite libraries and keep your ears on the ground for their new projects. The future of React Native is now. The future is at App.js.
What is React Native?
We can still consider React Native a new technology. Facebook released an open-source version just four years ago. Active contributors, as well as users, are constantly pushing this technology forward. It is undoubtedly a thriving community, be a part of it.
Meet creators of RN & Expo
Join App.js Conf and listen to the talks by the members of the Expo team. Experience the importance of networking during the conference and run fierce discussions with speakers and other attendees at our evening event. Get first-hand Expo tips during our workshops ran by Expo's creators. Participate, discuss and boost your skills. Make your next mobile app in no time.
What is Expo?
Expo is an open source toolchain that extends React Native and facilitates the process of developing, building and releasing native iOS and Android apps. It is like Rails for React Native.
Expo reduces the number of decisions you need to make ahead. It provides built-in solutions for problems faced by most apps. Even complex features that used to take two days to complete can get done in minutes. You don’t have to know too much about mobile development. Expo provides you with numerous React-Native Components which can be used to build your app in just a few lines of code. Through access to a set of convenient tools, you can see the latest version of your app on your phone immediately after you make a change in your code. It also helps you prepare binaries from your JS app ready for uploading to Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Contribute to open-source
The community of open-source developers is similar to a group of scientists. Most of the findings are shared with others and evaluated by them. This way, some of them become commonly accepted facts, others are denied and forgotten. That is more-less how the open-source projects work. Unlike the commercial ones, they develop much closer to the users' needs.
Why a conference?
Conferences are venues where you can meet core members of the community, share ideas and get inspired by them. You can be sure, that there are enough issues to solve for everyone. Join App.js Conf and become a member of the open-source community.
