Event description


Welcome to Series 4 of 4 of our React Native Workshop!

Gusky is happy to open Series 4 after a longer than expected break from Series 3. We apologize for the wait, but with summer activities we wanted to make sure everyone was available. We welcome Aaron Zozakiewicz back as he will work through completing your app in our last series. He will discuss creating a redux store and making an API call for the bar finder app. We hope this will help everyone get to where they need to be for their app development.

RSVP today...we don't want you on the waiting list.
