This is a beginner course for learners who would like to prepare themselves for a career in mobile development. To succeed in this course, you do not need prior development experience, only basic internet navigation skills and an eagerness to get started with coding.
Learn the fundamentals of User Experience (UX) research and design. Be immersed in the UX process of identifying problems and iterating and testing designs to find appropriate solutions. You’ll learn how to empathize with users through best practice research approaches, and create common UX artifacts such as user personas. Next, you’ll use UX insights to make appropriate design decisions.
By utilizing the UI design process, you will be able to create wireframes for features in Figma, and turn them into Minimum Viable Product (MVP) style prototypes from your mockups. You’ll also learn the core principles of design such as hierarchy and the use of grids.
If you want to become a mobile developer, this course is a good place to start. You will learn about the day-to-day responsibilities of web and mobile developers and get a general understanding of the core and underlying technologies that power the internet.
You’ll be introduced to core technologies like HTML and CSS, and get opportunities to practice using them.
In this course, you will also discover the unique world of cross-platform mobile applications (apps). Explore the various benefits of using a system like React Native to build mobile apps and get an opportunity to practice the basics.
This course expands upon the knowledge you gained from the React Native course, and will prepare you to make more informed decisions about how you access, store, retrieve and present data within your React Native applications.
The course is designed to be completed over five weeks. You will learn about data and databases in a more general sense, and then proceed to become familiar with tools and practices for working with data specifically in React Native.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
• Explain what REST APIs are and identify best practices for working with them
• Make network calls to retrieve online content and handle responses from the server
• Create databases and tables and use SQL to store data in them in a structured, relational way
• Read and write data for a mobile application using AsyncStorage
• Read and write data for a mobile application using SQLite
To complete this course, you will need React Native experience. Additionally, it always helps to have a can-do attitude!
Explore the fundamental concepts behind mobile architecture such as layers, data flows, performance and components versus containers. Mobile architecture is a group of patterns and techniques that developers use to build a fully structured mobile application (app).
Get a deeper understanding of how mobile devices handle the data from React Native. Soon, you’ll build your own data rich components.
