Migrating your RN app to GraphQL – by ABBIE HOWELL

In this talk, we will learn the benefits of GraphQL, a powerful query language for your API, and we will see practical examples and the difficulties that can arise with migrating an existing React Native application to GraphQL. Expect to go away from this talk knowing why to use GraphQL, how to use it, and how to avoid the common pitfalls.

From Zero to App Store – The Story Building out Travltalk in React Native – by RHIANNON MONKS

I will share how I took the idea for a mobile application and turned it into a reality through UX / UI, Ionic prototype and why I then decided to rebuild in React Native in early 2018! At the time the framework was still very young. I will also talk through our tech stack and what was selected and why, the challenges we had and which mobile analytics platforms work best for us with React Native.
