React Native is a great way to build native, cross platform apps for iOS and Android using JavaScript and the Visual Studio team recently released a new extension for React Native! The extension is similar to the Visual Studio Code Cordova Extension that enables you to build, debug and preview Apache Cordova apps, and it's built by the same team.

This session will be your opportunity to do a live Q&A with the Visual Studio product team that works on the React Native extension as well as TACO (the Tools for Apache Cordova). Joining the team will be two special guests from Exponent, makers of the Exponent Development Environment - a suite of tools to help developers build apps using ReactNative
