I love prototyping. I crave speed. Rapid prototyping has really coined itself as a term that executives and managers love to throw around – and that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing – in fact, it’s exactly how innovation happens.
It’s a bit like going back to Science class in school. What if I tried this? What if I tried that? To me – since I am a coder, making a prototype for my own personal use is almost just like writing down some ideas on a notepad, like how a rapper writes bars, or a classical composer does musical notation.
React Native is something I’ve been eyeing a lot recently and since I have some production React experience plus quite a lot of front-end & hybrid mobile app experience, I should be able to pick it up with not much learning curve. I do wonder how React Native will stack up against Ionic, Cordova or Meteor doing a rapid mobile app prototype because I assume it is less HTML5 + CSS3.
It’s time to take my son out to the GP…
