"But the Artsy team is so well known for their Obj-C / Swift work"
React Native has completely changed the dev culture at Artsy. There is no dedicated "iOS team" anymore, and we have web engineers regularly shipping code to our iOS app with barely any need for native engineer hand-holding. Since 2016, React Native has been a success for us.
This series covers the reasons why we made that choice, our interactions with React Native, the tooling around it, and shows how we've been handling some of the issues that come up as an early adopter.
Sidenote: we ran a conference with Facebook in 2018 called Artsy x React Native.
