Whenever there's a conversation about working on React Native, versioning and release cycle usually arise as one of the pain points. But why is that the case? How complicated is it to create a new release of React Native? Surely it looks similar to the release process you are using... or not! During this talk I'll walk you through the many steps and complexities involved in publishing a new version or React Native - and the evolution this process is undergoing since 2018, when I first helped out!
Lorenzo is a Software Engineer at Formidable UK — a few years ago he decided to use React Native for a project. He hasn’t stopped since: he became an Open Source maintainer for the core project, helping the Facebook team. He also cares a lot about mental health, so he decided to help his local OSS community with a dedicated meetup, ProvidedAsIs.
