This chapter introduced you to the tools that ship with React Native to help you get started with new projects. We walked through creating an empty example project, and we walked through what's actually generated for us. Then, you learned about iOS and Android simulators, since they're where you'll spend the majority of your time developing React Native applications.

Lastly, you learned about the React Native tools that build and deploy your app into the simulator for you. You also learned that you can enable live reloading or hot reloading from within the app.

In the next chapter, you'll spend more time writing React Native application code by building flexible layouts.
