Cloneable

Learn to code by copying the Apps you ♥

Cloneable is a series of courses that teaches you how to make real versions of the apps that you use everyday single day. You'll learn how to make apps like Tinder, Snapchat and Uber, all using Facebook's React Native framework. It's Awesome.

At the end of each course you’ll not only have some useful skills, you’ll also have a real app that you can adapt however you want, and because you built it, you’ll know how to update and maintain your code. You don’t have to know anything to start, we’ll go through it all, from the fundamentals of programming to implementing your very own backend database. We'll even show you how to deliver your app to Google Play and the Apple app store.

This looks absolutely fantastic. Well done Justin and team!

I understand that this is not the goal of your product, but I wonder if these courses teach transferable skills? In other words, at the end of these courses, you'll be able to create your own app ideas? I've found similar products (codecademy, for example) don't effectively teach transferable skills.

@AWill2Go the goal of each course will be to copy a specific app like tinder or instagram. It will be straightforward to put your own spin on it like "tinder for food". If you want to create something completely different then things will be a little more difficult but the majority of what you learn will be transferable. e.g. how to layout your app, use components like buttons and listviews, connect it to a database, submit your app to the app store etc. These are all the same across all apps (with very minor customizations).

@JustinNothling Seems like this would be good for most app ideas, but for more complex/one-of-a-kind ideas, not sure this would transfer.

@AWill2Go Complex/one-of-a-kind ideas still use buttons and databases :) But I agree, it wouldn't necessarily be as straightforward.

I've never heard of the "React Native framework". I guess it makes registration via Facebook authorisation easier, but what other advantages are there?
Avatar?ixlib=rails 2.1
@ianmayman so most of the advantages from react native are not related to Facebook at all. I've written a medium post to answer this very question:

@JustinNothling this sounds awesome! When will it be available? I signed up through the website but got no confirmation. Thx
Avatar?ixlib=rails 2.1
@rooterdog the first course will be available in the next few weeks. I haven't built the email confirmation system yet. (been focusing on content). Follow me on twitter @justinnothling to get updates on the course progress.

Nice project, special for entrepreneurs in this side of the world (Latin America)

Hey @JustinNothling I'm about to get started on a React Native app for a personal project and was interested in your courses before jumping in. Based on your site, it looks like you only have one available. Do you know when others might be coming?

@rcwestlake i'll be releasing info about the tinder course this later this week. Stay tuned
