Summer Fun with React Native

Hey! Is everyone sick of the pool and ready to do a little summer coding!?!?

I was recently just working my way through the main React Native tutorial found here:

https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/getting-started

…and I thought I would push my little app up to GitHub and share it with you girls to see if you want to work with React Native during the upcoming year or perhaps at an upcoming event… ahem… overnight event… er… in July… in CHICAGO… ?  I think you know what I am talking about!

For the IDE, I was using VSCode, which is free and you can use it on a Mac or PC. You can download it here:

https://code.visualstudio.com/ 

It has a built in terminal panel to do your npm commands. Go to View > Integrated Terminal to open it.

HAVE FUN!
