What is the project about?

In this tutorial project, you will be able to build a complete MarcoPolo app with react native. MarcoPolo app is a platform for explorers and outdoor enthusiasts. It enables them to create a community, events, and travel with each other. The app provides a unique platform for anyone who wants to meet like-minded explorers. The project will dive deep into the app concept and utilize React Native in the front-end and Node.js, MongoDB, and Hapijs in the backend. The app will also use Redux, a predictable state container for JavaScript apps.

To completely enjoy and learn at the same time, the viewer should have a basic understanding of JavaScript, React, Redux, React native, NoSQL(database-knowledge) and Node.js in general. If you are a complete beginner, the course is not for you. You need to meet the basic requirement before you can start with the tutorial.

The target audience for the course is anyone who is willing to learn React Native development using Redux and how to feed data from a Node.js backend.

What will you be able to do after you finish the course?

After you finish the tutorial, you will be able to work freely with React Native. Not only that you will be able to work on a similar application that focuses on creating events, excellent UX and UI and other community-related functionality.
