Summary

Now hopefully, you understand the radical new direction React has taken in achieving performance. The Virtual DOM handles all of the DOM manipulations for us behind the scenes. At the same time, it uses efficient diffing algorithms to minimize the number of calls to the DOM. We have also seen how JSX allows us to express our components declaratively and combine our application logic into a single file. By using props and state, we can pass the data through components and update them dynamically.

I hope you can now take the information you learned in this chapter and convince your boss to start using React Native right away!
