How did I get started? Lots and lots of tutorials. There are now quite a few out there, and I tried to go through all of them. My favorites:
After making these demo apps, I felt ready to start on my own. I picked an idea simple enough that it seemed achievable (an app that generates completely ridiculous wine tasting notes) but challenging enough that it would still push me beyond the topics and patterns gleaned from the demos (i.e., incorporating text to speech, social sharing, custom icons).
Last week, I officially submitted the app and it’s currently in the queue to be reviewed by Apple. I’ll follow up with another post about it once it’s live! In the meantime, I can’t wait to get started on my next React Native project :)
