What you'll learn

NativeScript ships with a set of user interface views (also known as widgets) which you can use to build the user interface of a mobile application. These views wrap the corresponding native views for iOS and Android while providing a common API for working with it. This course builds your hands-on knowledge of UI widgets, their properties, their events, and their styling capabilities, and it does so incrementally. We even take a look at some unexpected behaviors that the views exhibit.
