Stack Navigator v5 in React Native

Hello 👋 dev,

Earlier this month, react-navigation library released version 5 that has some significant changes to handle navigation in a React Native app. Without a doubt, it’s one of the most popular navigation solutions in React Native apps that also has support for Expo.

Coming out with a more of component based approach, IMO, the library has become more approachable for any one with a web development background or some one who has experience with web frameworks like Reactjs and so on.

Here is the first post in the series that will guide you through the basics as well some tips on using Stack Navigation pattern.

Second post of this week is not written by me, but a friend of mine and long time subscriber to this newsletter, Lizzie Siegle, who has featured in this newsletter before.

Her expertise in Machine Learning and using Tensorflow fascinates me and this time she shows us how to "Classify Texts with TensorFlow and Twilio".
