I’m very new at attempting to create an App in general, and unsure if I am in over my head or not. In general, I’m looking to possibly create a Golf League App for our small summer time league. A combination of perhaps making our league function better and myself looking to learn more.
I have past basic skills with some php, mysql, java, css, html, etc having hosted a website or 2 in the past. But I am pretty new with React and Expo and creating an app.
So given some time, patience, lots of reading and learning, etc. In your honest opinion, do you think this is something a newbie can learn?
And a few quick questions in trying to understand the overall mechanics in learning to create an app vs past static html type sites.
I assume (always a bad thing) that eventually with an app, that you would update your ‘backend’ website or host for updates and the app would read those updates. Ie, when posting golf scores, etc. I would most likely be posting updates on a backend with the App possibly a read only type thing.
Or perhaps to have users post scores from their phones directly in the app and update to the host site. I guess that’s a design type feature to think about?
Can Expo possibly access GPS info if one wanted to try and create their own golf app with distances from Tee to Green, etc?
And as I start reading the docs, is there a PDF version available to print to hardcopy?
