March is over, and just like last month, we’re here with our hand-picked top 5 selection of the community’s best React meetup videos. Last month had lots of amazing content to share, such as React Native Firebase, Rapid React, hooks, React Native navigation, improving apps with custom hooks and query, and there’s even a video showing a complete restaurant app built.
Grab some coffee – this roundup will keep you watching videos for quite a while for sure!

Introduction to React Hooks
In this course you’ll go over the standard built-in hooks provided by the library and demonstrate their working with small examples and components that leverage them internally.
Expert guide to React Navigation
In this episode of Mike Grabowski, and his guests: Satya Sahoo and Mateusz Kosoń, software engineers at Callstack, are talking about the React Navigation library.
During the conversation, they cover a wide range of topics related to this library, including:
– What is it and what’s its biggest selling point?
– What was the idea behind creating the library?
– How did it happen that React Navigation became a “recommended” library in the community?
– What’s coming up with the React Navigation v5?
– What issues does it v5 solve?
– What do they appreciate most about React Navigation v5?
Also, they will provide some sneak peaks at what’s coming up with the upcoming v6.0!
Improving apps with Custom Hooks and ReactQuery
Zach Taylor will be going over two things that can greatly help you improve the quality of your code: custom hooks and react-query.
Custom Hooks: One of the main reasons people love React is that it allows them to organize markup into reusable pieces. Custom hooks allow us to do the same thing with application state. This might sound mysterious, but it’s not: custom hooks are just functions. And because they are just functions, they can do all the things functions can do. They are reusable, and they can help you maintain separation of concerns in your application.
Application state can always be organized into two categories: UI state and server state. You’ve probably noticed the distinction because server state comes with several unique challenges. React-Query is an awesome library that solves these challenges and will help you manage server state the right way, making your app much more performant and maintainable. And when you combine it with custom hooks, things get even better!
Let’s build a restaurant app
React Native is a mobile development platform known for its native application and cross-platform capabilities. In this workshop, we are going to show you how you can develop your very own restaurant application from start to finish. We also show you how to set up a stylish UI and cover some important features that will be added to the app.
