We had a holiday in the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ so we're coming at you on Tuesday this week. For everyone in the States, I hope you had a good long weekend to spend time with family or side projects. We spent ours working on a web React project that may interest NYC beer aficionados ๐Ÿป and trying things out in ARKit with Swift.

If you'd like to contribute to React Native Coach be sure to drop me a line! [email protected]
