Issue #93

Hi Readers!

This issue has the usual goodies, and if you're into ML, you'll find some great content on how to apply TensorFlow.js in a React Native project. Additionally, you might have heard that React Native 0.61 is out now and includes Fast Refresh, which unifies the existing “Live Reloading” and “Hot Reloading” features in React Native development. So be sure to upgrade or start a new React Native project and give it a try! It's pretty ! 

P.S. Pro TipThe core team has deprecated the iOS .xcodeproj support, and the file has been removed starting 0.61 -- so you'll want to use the .xcworkspace file going forward with 0.61
