React Native - Advanced Concepts

Hello,
I am following this course and noticed that most parts of the code are deprecated.
While in the Fundamentals code it was easily fixabled, I see that in the advanced like I just started and in the Native Features chapter I see lots of changes. ( for es launchImageLibraryAsync for ex has the return statement completely changed ( like an obj with assets and canceled ) IDK, I guess I’ll find more changes like this if I continue the course, but I wonder if it’s worth following it ?

I see from the forum that the first pinned post is from 2020, it makes sense - lots of things change in 4 years, but on the website I cannot see when the course was made, I probably wouldn’t have bought it knowing it’s that old.

I’m not trying to flame or anything, maybe request an update on the lessons with the new changes in the libraries?

Yes having the year mentioned on the course will be nice. Sometimes I have a curiosity even though I have already bought the course.

I faced similar issue with the Node course. It wasn’t fun but these hurdles help you getting prepared for what you’d be doing in the actual development.

Honestly, I’m really annoyed that these tutorials didn’t stay up-to-date. I recommend not buying them.

I totally agree with you. It would be great if Mosh could do a course update. I started it with a lot of enthusiam.

The Ultimate React Native Series: Fundamentals
The 1st part, I was able to complete it with updating certain part of the code.

The Ultimate React Native Series: Advanced Concepts
While beginning the 2nd part, I had to update some dependencies versions to make the api server work. Unluckily again, I got stuck in chapter 04 - Networking (when posting the listings). I’ve reviewed other people issues on this, but their solutions did not work for me.

I’m a person that likes to learn how to debug software, but sometimes it gets very complex or annoying. Not to mention, when you are learning something new.

Not sure how other people as of 2024 has made DoneWithIt mobile app work and/or have made it run 100%. Is there anyone who could share the complete code?

Finally, I’ve learned a ton from 12 chapters (only 4 to finish the bundle) and the way Mosh teaches, you don’t even feel how time goes by. But is really a pity that I’m (and I would think lots of other people as me are) stuck.

So, again it would be GREAT if Mosh could do an update on this React Native course as he did with the React course. Please Mosh if you read this comment, set some time to update at least the outdated lessons.

Could you complete the Node course?

Yes, I completed it in 2020. I think I needed to use Yup instead of Joi and there were a few mongoose issues as well.

I think I had no issues following the course. It is true that some of the libraries are deprecated but the essence of following the course is to know the core features. Besides, Mosh will always show you the documentation of each library and how to use it. If you are following the course so many years after, try to use modern libraries and challenge yourself to make it work. After learning, you find yourself in a real environment where things are rapidly changing everyday. You would not expect to go back to the course
