Technical Requirements

What are the pre-requisites for these courses?

Students should have a modest computer at minimum with internet access able to run a text editor and command line scripts. They should have the mobile development environment set up and configured. See the docs for more info on this setup.

What kind of development experience should I have to take this course?

Students should have some hands-on experience with JavaScript development. While not required, more hands-on JavaScript experience, experience with TypeScript and NPM is a plus.

I don't know where to begin, should I take NativeScript with Angular or NativeScript Core courses?

Angular and Core are currently the two 'tracks' for developers to follow, although they are not limited by these tracks and can skip around. If you are comfortable using Angular (v2+), then follow the NativeScript with Angular track. If you are coming from a plain JavaScript world, then follow the NativeScript Core track. Each course is clearly marked with either the NativeScript with Angular logo or the NativeScript Core logo , and some courses apply to both Angular AND Core.

Are these courses appropriate for brand new NativeScript developers?

Our courses are broken down by level of experience. The Getting Started courses for both NativeScript with Angular and NativeScript Core are for absolute beginners, so if this is the first line of code you are writing for NativeScript, you’re in a good place! The beginner classes are labeled with the level 1 icon . The Pro courses (Angular and Core) are for students with a bit more experience and have a level 3 icon .

What are the system requirements for this class?

Students should have a modest computer at minimum with internet access able to run a text editor and command line scripts. If you have an IDE on your laptop (Visual Studio Code, WebStorm, Notepad++ etc), you are in good shape.
