An introduction to mobile app development
Learn to make mobile apps for both iOS and Android
You’ll learn mobile app development through using React, a framework used to make everything from webn apps to iOS and Android apps. This course is intended for students with at least some coding experience (CS 1110 or another HackCville tech course) — if you have 0 coding experience, we recommend taking Source Lite or Node Lite first.
Develop solid skills in Git, Node, and the Terminal
Although not the most flashy, Git and the Terminal two of the most important tools that develops need to know. Git is a software that allows us to control versions of our code and allows us to collaborate with others, while the Terminal is the “home base” from which we will navigate our computer files and run code.
Deploy a mobile app by the end of the semester
As we reach the end of Mobile, we will be able to make React Native apps, hit API endpoints, grab data from the backend, and finally deploy the projects to your phone. This means you’ll leave the course with a solid project to add to your portfolio.

Fees & Accessibility
Course Fee: $125
Each of our courses is just $125 — that’s less than a weekly lunch out for the semester. We are committed to making our courses accessible to all. We reduce or eliminate the program fee to all students who need it, no questions asked. Our aim is to enable everyone who wants to learn and join the HackCville community.
All of our courses meet once a week for 2 hours. Courses start the third week of UVA classes (Sep 8) and continue weekly through the end of November. Courses expect a 4-6 hour/week commitment. Outside of the 2 hours in your workshop meeting time, you can expect to meet with your instructor weekly for check-ins (at flexible times) and to spend some time working with your classmates on projects.
