The episode explores React Native for Windows. Mike and Bartosz reveal why we should think about React Native Windows in terms of desktop development.

At the beginning, they talk about JavaScript and other languages used to develop desktop applications: what’s made them an obvious choice for desktop so far, what they let you do, and what advantages or disadvantages they may have.
