Issue #153

This week's issue features articles about the upcoming App.js Conf, clones of popular apps using Expo, and an announcement for Reanimated 3.

Heya React Native fans! We don't have a video message for this issue, but there's a lot to talk about!

App.js Conf, upcoming in June 2022, will be held in Poland. It features a stellar roster of presenters/workshops and covers a wide range of exciting topics, including deployments using Expo (EAS), the benefits of V8 over Hermes, and securely processing payments in a React Native app.

If you are looking for inspiration for your own React Native apps, check out "Clones of popular apps using Expo". You are probably familiar with many of these apps, such as Uber, Spotify, and Slack. The repos are available here:

Last, but not least, the "Announcing Reanimated 3" article provides a glimpse into the future for the Reanimated library, which will support the new React Native architecture (Fabric) and begin the process of shedding some of the legacy support currently maintained in Reanimated 2.  

Now, let's get to the good stuff!
