Last time we had a look at a more complex navigation flow using the AuthFlow Pattern. This time we will look into different types of nested navigations and adjust our main navigation flow a bit more to take care of persisted user data/login state and such.

Nested Navigation inside a screen

Here is a quick…


Preparations

For our AuthFlow example, we need a few additional screens. For one we want to allow the user to both sign in (existing users) and sign up (new users) and in addition to the AppLoading screen (for loading / initialising user data) I’ve added an AppCheck screen where I will…


Last time we added redux to our app. This time we will integrate React Navigation (v5.x at the time of writing), a very flexible and robust navigation/routing solution and the primary recommendation made by the expo team too.

With the v5 update, React Navigation got a major overhaul. They split…


As the creator of games, it is often hard to see or judge if the core idea is fun to play and within the realms of reasonable complexity. Prototypes and playtests will allow you to dodge bullets and maybe even pull the plug before it is too late.

Starting today, I’m kicking off my new series of articles about game development topics. …


But they make you think differently about the issues at hand.

For a long time, I thought that I did not have the time to write tests or that I’ll simply do it later. It took me a few years to see how my thinking was completely backwards.

Let me…


Scrum might be a foot-gun so stop trying to make it fit. There, I’ve said it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love working on agile projects. I’ve done it in the past, I’m doing it for some of my projects and I will do it in the future. But right…


Today we will dive a bit deeper into the way I work with redux and why I think that, despite recent developments of react hooks, redux still has its place in our infrastructure.

I’ve got multiple requests for more information about my redux setup after writing my last article so…
