None out of the ordinary, after all, following the steps of someone who has done this before and have already written a step by step guide is the simplest way to learn soemthing.

However, in the programming field, things might not always work like that. There are some cases, especially with open source materials and new technology, that there might not be any tutorials available.

108 Native Mobile Development: Is It Going To Die? - Simple Programmer Video Podcast

May 24, 2017

HIRED.COM - Simple Programmer Sponsor: https://www.simpleprogrammer.com/hiredsp

There is a lot of questions on the internet about the future of mobile development, especially the difference between native and hybrid mobile development.

Before we dive into this discussion, it is important to understand the basic difference between native vs hybrid mobile development:

"Hybrid App: Developer augments web code with native SDK. Can be easily deployed across multiple platform and is usually the cheaper and faster solution.

Native App: This is platform (iOS, Android etc.) specific and requires unique expertise. However the full potential of the platform can be leveraged which will drive great user experience and larger app capabilities (especially around phone hardware). Can be pricey based on requirement and may take longer to develop."
(Source: https://julyrapid.com/hybrid-vs-native-mobile-app-decide-5-minutes/)

So, one of the main concerns of new mobile developers is if they should invest in native mobile development... Is it going to die?

Said that, it is important for us to understand why people leave and why people give up... Most is because of demotivation. They feel lost, they feel like it doesn't make any sense anymore.
