Anything by Maximilian Schwarzmüller is a good start.

I know you said no Expo, but I'm currently doi this Udemy course:

He says you need JavaScript and React knowledge, but he has two sections at the end you can use to refresh/get the basics of both. I'm currently taking the course and it's going well. I only had basic JavaScript and zero react knowledge going in.

Regarding expo, he has a section that outlines expo vs react-native cli, and then later on in the course a section on applying it all to reactive native cli without expo. I haven't gotten to that section yet, so I can't speak to it yet.

Overall, I'm really enjoying the course, and I'm finding it easy to follow, even though I don't have the "prerequisite" JavaScript and React knowledge.

Make sure you've got a good understanding of the basics of CSS, HTML, etc, but don't get too attached to the details because React/React Native makes up its own rules for those things.Once you've got that, I'd recommend diving into hands-on stuff, there are a lot of things in React (and React Native especially) that can be hard to grasp conceptually but make MUCH more sense hands-on- looking at you, Redux-thunk. Maximillian Schwarzmuller has a really good course on Udemy (link) where you build several smaller RN projects, each one demonstrating different concepts. He explains things pretty well but he types faster than I've ever seen, so you might have to play his vids at 75% for a code along.

Also, make sure you're stocked up with plenty of booze, because the React Native debugging process will drive you down a well of despair when you're just getting the hang of it. And also after you've gotten the hang of it.

Just an FYI, most of us don't take all of the courses out there, so it's really hard to say "this is the best". Personally, I enjoyed this course when I was learning. It has been updated since, as a lot of changes have happened since I was learning React Native, but Max is pretty good about keeping his tutorials up to date.

That said, this requires you to already have a foundation in using React. It doesn't cover the fundamentals of React itself, but rather how to use React Native. He does have a React course as well that I used when I learned React and it is of similar quality.

But again, I don't know if it's the "best"; I don't go take a bunch of tutorials for things I already know. I can't review the ones I didn't use.

You are right there. I understand your perspective and after reading all your other comments I have some good ideas to start with. I am leaving React native for now because I think I have covered all the major aspects of it from This course. I think it covers all the stuff for a perfect react native developer but do tell me if I am wrong here(If you open the link and have look over course content). I am not going for a particular field like mobile development or data science or anything else for now because I am just 14 now and I just wanna explore all the languages and frameworks till I go into 10th because then I know I won't get any time to code. I think I have spent my 2 years doing web development and python and I take a break from them(especially from web dev). Thanks for your reply....I will give kotlin a try for sure (if I would be able to understand it XD). Thank you

I did 2 on Udemy when I wanted to learn RN. The first was by Stephen Grider, which I didn't enjoy very much.

The second is by Maximilian Schwarzmüller. I really enjoyed this one. He covers a huge range of topics and you build a few apps throughout the course.

You can get it here:

They're having a sale now, so you can pick it up for cheap. This course really gives you everything you need to get started with React Native.

Edit: Sorry, I just realized you were looking for a free course. I'll leave this here anyway, since it's really cheap on sale and well worth it.

I'm a Android developer and I'm a bit hesitant to recommend either Flutter or React Native as I honestly don't feel either is going to used much in the market place. I'd recommend learning native app development as its pretty easy to pick up. But if you are set on cross platform development...I haven't used Flutter, so I cannot speak to it. I was impressed with this Udemy class on React Native. It costs like $15 and is very well done. It goes from zero to fully built apps and the guy is just a great instructor (his accent it fun too)

I’m about start this one in Udemy:

I’ve followed another courses from the same instructor and the guy is really good at teaching.

Not OP but if you check out the repo, he mentioned the knowledge of this app is based on React Native - The Practical Guide,

This is the course I was talking about. His main project uses EXACTLY the same images, product names, and UI/UX as yours... although as I said yours has much nicer animations so I will certainly give you credit for that...

Apple and Google don't allow you to use Stripe to sell "digital products/services".

So if you're like me, and sell "Reglar / Pro / Gold" type memberships where each tier only unlocks features in your app, you HAVE to use Apples/Googles own in-app-purchase libraries.

You are however allowed to use Stripe to sell non digital products/services, for instance if you're an e-commerce shop selling clothes.

I haven't implemented the cash part yet. You can of course handle it yourself in your own node serve,r but I plan to use, which is sort of like Stripe, but for In-app-purchases. I don't dare to handle the backend of anything so sensitive as cash or credit-card related data flows and storage myself.

As for React Native, I sat down a full day and watched this:

Costs money, but it's so much higher quality and in depth than anything you can find on YouTube. I didn't watch it all, only the core concepts, and then I started my own app, and went back to the videos /used the docs whenever I needed to dive deeper into a single subject.

Good luck!

Well, React Native is pretty nice. There are many ways to study, my recommendation is getting a good course on Udemy, like this one.

React Native:

They list courses as expensive but they will be on discount if you open a private window and sign up as a new user (obviously).

Start with React then go towards React Native since the stuff you will learn in standalone React can be used on React Native (some libraries work out of the box and folder/component structuring)

As for resources, I have learned RN using Udemy. There are two courses:

First by Maximillian

Second by Steven Grinder

And if you want to start with ReactJs first then Steven’s course for react is solid

If you don't mind learning Javascript and React, you might try looking into React Native. Not only will you learn to be proficient at mobile development, but you'll have a leg up on web development as well. If you don't mind spending a few bucks, there are a few really good courses on Udemy I would suggest, that will have you building projects from start to finish:




That said, there are other options if you don't want to invest that much time into it. Flutter does seem to be a pretty cool alternative, as well as Ionic. The same instructor also offers courses in those technologies as well but I've never taken them myself.



As you may notice, all those courses are instructed by Maximilian Schwarzmüller. IMHO, his courses are some of the easiest to follow, and he does a really good job of explaining the nuts and bolts of everything he's teaching you. He has a somewhat strong accent though, which some people find hard to follow - but personally I like it because it forces me to pay closer attention.

Any way you cut it, though - have patience and just have fun with it. If you get frustrated about something or have questions, definitely post questions here or on the Udemy forums. Lot's of helpful people, even the instructors themselves.

PS: Pretty much every course on Udemy goes on sale for a super low price at some point, very often. If you find a course that you want to take that is very expensive, add it to your wishlist and check back every few days and it will probably be much cheaper (for example, a course that is normally $125 could be marked down to $10)
