Serverless Scala.js iOS/Android/Web Apps from One Code Base

Session Recording

About this Session

Scala.js is on its path to hit 1.0.0 and React-native is maturing well. Combining the advantages of both yields the promise of end-to-end FP to generate 3 different apps from a single code base. We also add to the mix GraphQL in a server-less configuration. So, does it work? In this talk, I will share our experience developing UI apps for web, iOS and Android with no web server in sight. I will also do plenty of live coding to demonstrate the ease of use and if we're lucky, we'll open source the sample app we develop.
