Issue #78

Hi Readers!

Pretty full issue this week with a range of articles from animations to linters to a hackathon story, and a couple of cool modules. Did somebody say hooks??? Hooks are just about available for React Native - they're being implemented in v0.59.0-rc.2  and we've got an article in this issue on how to start using them in your React Native app. 

Don't forget that the Chain React Conference is fast approaching, so be sure to get your early bird tickets today before they run out!

Happy reading!
