In this episode, we resume our conversation with Airbnb’s Gabriel Peal. If you haven’t listened to part 1, you really really should go back and do that. In that episode, we kicked it off by first trying to understand the goals and the story behind why React Native was chosen as the code sharing technology/tool.
If you haven’t heard, Airbnb has decided to move away from React Native. Friend of the show Gabriel Peal wrote an in-depth series of blog posts about this. We had so many questions around this that we asked him to come on the show and he graciously accepted to answer some of our questions.
It’s always a pleasure listening to his insights and this episode is no exception!

In this episode Donn talks to React Native magician Ryan Salva. React native and cross-platform development is typically one of our most requested topics so we kick the new year off with React Native. Ryan and Donn dive into the state of React Native today for mobile development, how it’s matured since inception, what kinds of apps are suited to be built with React Native, what kinds aren’t, what are the benefits to using React Native, some tips like pushing updates without having to upload to the play store every time and so much more.
Noteworthy quotes from this episode:
As developers, we are empowered to break things; it’s our god given right!
