The cookbook style of text keeps things focused and appeals to a wide range of development needs, whether it's targeting a specific solution or picking up a new skill. The compact nature of this book allows a developer to add value to their skill set quickly without littering the process with overbearing theory.
This book covers the usual suspects you'd expect, from layouts to animation to state management with Redux. However the biggest bonus of this book is the coverage of strategies for a developer to take their React Native skills to the next level. The reader will learn how to incorporate true native development in the form of modules and custom view components as well as integrating React Native apps with existing native applications across a variety of platforms. The chapter on performance is also very helpful and unique for a book of this format.
This book is great for a variety of readers from web developers looking to upgrade their skills to produce native applications all the way to native developers looks to integrate with other apps and platforms.
1. I expected that the book would inform you of any environment changes/needs for development - NO
2. I expected that the code samples provided would npm install, compile and run - NO - only the first few worked, after that you get all kinds of errors
This book focuses primarily on CSS, flex layouts, etc. which is great if you are just looking for a book on page/view layout.
It also demonstrates some very basic "theories" and shows you how to use certain library, but in no way is this a cookbook to real world development.
