About the Workshop

Learn how to use #ReactNative to build features for iOS and Android.

ReactNative is a mature and popular framework initially developed by Facebook. It is built on a declarative, composable and functional approach that aims to reduce development cycle times and increase maintainability. While reusing many development paradigms from the web, ReactNative builds upon native components to offer a smooth user experience. There is a large toolbox of components available to get started quickly. In this track we’ll build an app prototype with features such as QR-code scanning and offline storage.

Billions of people are inspired by sport around the world. There is probably no other activity as sport that brings people from all walks of life joyful together. Sport activities contribute to health and wellbeing on many levels. With advancements in technology the landscape of sports is changing. New sport experiences that inspire to serve society are possible. We will take a deeper look in this opportunities and creatively apply them.
