To make the most out of my monthly codewithmosh subscription I’ve decided to try the React Native course, but during the initial Expo installation lesson I’ve noticed that the course is 3-4 years old and the APIs and CLI seemed to have changed significantly since then. The mobile app Expo Client has also been replaced with Expo Go (or maybe just renamed).
I guess what I’m looking for is advice from those who currently do (or are familiar with) React Native / Expo development. Is it worth taking this course, or should I just learn on my own?
I have no problem taking the course if the meat of the content and development paradigms are largely the same and only requires me to read the docs and make a few API/CLI changes. But if there’s been a major paradigm shift it how Expo development works it might be better to just learn on my own.
For example, imagine if I were thinking of taking a beginner React course that was written pre-hooks (class components & lifecycle methods). It would be so outmoded at this point that I’d be better off learning the hooks-first approach on my own or elsewhere.
Thanks in advance.
