    Have you tried Next.js? They have a static site generator that’s pretty amazing. You can set it up so that every time you update Wordpress content, it re-exports a new version of the site with updated content. Then you only ping your sever when you export a new version, or anything super dynamic that happens after the user is on the page.

    As a fellow developer one word - Respect. Everyone wants free shit these days - it’s important that you value your own work because others certainly will not. I mean you know they aren’t working free, and neither should you.

    i'd be curious to find out on say for the Instagram app - how much of it they needed native app developers to create code. It's hard to tell if an app created with React-native - uses custom native features that aren't available by default. I guess its probably trail by fire in terms of performance? Try it with RN - and if its not smooth enough - figure out how to make it in native?

    Cheers, S

    I see, I'm just so new to the app dev world and no one seems to be very clear in what the limitations of React-Native in terms of performace are. (Or at least dont like to talk about them) As a web developer, I cannot stand janky animations. Have you seen any issues with a react-app?

    Wow Meng To, Thank you so much for personally reaching out. The quality is solid and I recognize the hustle and work put into the product. In addition to building the app itself, will I learn the basics of swift/xCode? What sort of skills will I take away from this class? The only reason I'm asking is I want to learn to make apps and want to make sure I learn the foundation of swift/xCode in order to do that. Again really appreciate you reaching out and as a designer/dev - a huge kudos to your platform you've built.
