React Native is an open-source mobile application framework released by Facebook in 2015. This framework makes it possible to use the popular web development library, React.js (a.k.a. React), to build mobile apps for Android and iOS. React Native is very actively maintained: in 2018, it had the second-highest number of contributors for any GitHub repository. It is also supported and used by many companies besides Facebook, including Callstack, Expo, Infinite Red, Microsoft, and Software Mansion. With the help of certain courses and bootcamps, students who have some fundamental JavaScript knowledge can learn to build mobile apps using React Native.

Learning React Native is a popular route to becoming an application developer. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual salary for application developers is $103,000, and the job market for software developers as a group is projected to grow by 21 percent between 2018 and 2028, which is much faster than the 5 percent projected rate of growth across all occupations.

There are many courses and bootcamps available for people who are interested in web development using React. To help students compare options side by side, SwitchUp compiles information and alumni reviews for web development bootcamps that specialize in or include React Native training.
