How long would it take a non-Eng data scientist to learn react native to build a mobile app?
Hey friends. I’m a Data scientist who’s proficient at R and SQL but never built any apps. I’m looking into learning React Native for the purpose of building a simple CRUD app for a startup. We already have a backend DB and API built as well as a UI fully designed. I was thinking of learning react native myself instead of paying a mobile developer to connect the api to our UI. If I go this route, I would devote a few full weeks to learning RN and building this app (I’m full time at the startup no longer at uber). I have full access to Lynda dot com for the react native courses.
To those who gave worked in RN, does this sound like a smart idea? Is it realistic to learn RN in a week or two (full time) and be able to build a mobile app? Or do you think it’d be too complex for a non-engineer? Any advice appreciated.
