React Native moving full steam ahead at Shopify and Microsoft!

React Native has been having a big couple weeks in the news recently. With the announcement from Shopify (see below) and Microsoft shipping every copy of Windows 10 with the framework - they are continuing to invest heavily. Which is great news - especially since it's possible to run faster than native!

On the other side of that coin, there was a little bit of flak from outside the community as it was revealed that the much talked-about app from the Iowa caucus was built on React Native. If you didn't pay too much attention to that one, here's a good thread on how that all happened. The truth here is that it has nothing to do with the technology chosen, but rather a faulty process.
