Hi, I’m Noam.

I’m a Fullstack web developer now moving into Mobile. Started out with React and now its mobile native bridge.
I live in northern Israel. Junior computer science student.

Very excited about working with Expo. It has proven so far a quick and reliable method of getting started without the setup you’d have to do without it.Cheers to the Expo team and thank you for all the dev’s who came before to build the treasure of knowledge.

Looking forwards to see you all,
Noam G. Jacobson

Hello everyone,

I am a software developer who has built a Three.js / React/ Redux /Forms /Material.ui (mui) toolkit that stores most UI components as data definitions (as well as data itself) in mysql (for now) and is being ported to sqlite (the data model is done, still working on some triggers).

I have been asked by a user of Admin-On-Rest (A Material.ui/Rest based git repository) to port the app to the Expo/ React native environment, hence this introductory note.

I have reduced my mui toolkit to about 2000 loc (including svg icons). It is highly opinionated and has removed many of the mui options that might be considered “UI for UI sake” in for many applications.

I expect that a port of this mui toolkit would be useful to the community and useful educational experience for me.

If there are others who are interested in this type of project please let me know.

Hello, I’m Mido and I’m a React / React Native developer from New Zealand.

Well done and thanks for making such an awesome tool :pray:

Hello, I’m Charles and excited to get started with Expo. I’ve been learning React and use C9 as my development environment. I decided to start learning React Native as well. Unfortunately, one cannot develop React Native apps using C9. So that lead me over to Expo which looks amazing.

From my understanding for developing apps, one can either:

  1. Use Expo Snacks
    or
  2. Use Expo XDE

Snack seems like what I want as it would allow me to work on my projects no matter what laptop I’m on. Why would one choose XDE over Snacks and vice-versa?

Just want to make sure I’m not missing out on something by only using Snacks.

If you use Snack, you can always download your project to your filesystem with the “Export to XDE” button.

Snack is a great way to start – and finish – many projects. I think if you like it you should go for it.

The main good things about XDE are:
(a) some better debuggability
(b) ability to use git etc. to manage your files, sometimes easier to collaborate with others
© If you do certain kinds of things with Snack, the app can get into a confusing state.

Welcome Charles!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Camilo and I live in Miami, FL. While deciding on which mobile platform to use for my startup, VoiceYourVoice (http://voiceyourvoice.co/), I decided to give CRNA and Expo a try and fell in love with this awesome platform!
I’m just fully grateful for this awesome project and many thanks for all the hardworking Expo team and community for making this a reality. I was a Jr. Android developer back in 2010 and fast-forwarding to today I can see how tremendously the app dev process and tools have evolved. Pretty remarkable.

Thanks!

Hello Everyone! My name is Stuart Casarotto. I am an Entrepreneur and Developer based out of Chicago. I have built a couple production Expo Apps and love the technology. I spent over a year doing native iOS development starting with Swift 1 and leaving right around Swift 3.1. Over the last year I have taken a deep dive into React and that lead me to Expo.

Hi Everyone,

Todd checking in here. I’m a programming noob looking to develop enough skills to make an app that might bring in enough scratch to help me pay for my kid’s college tuition. After about 3 months of aimless wandering though various tutorials and courses I found React Native and Expo and really what I see. This make me very excited to learn and hopefully deliver a great product to the app store.
