Open Source Collaboration

June 06, 2015

Our co-founders success in creating popular open source projects leads to the creation of the Invertase brand. Their joint passion for programming forms the foundations of several popular libraries such as React Native Material Design, denque & RDash. As the technology ecosystem changes, our focus shifts to keep up with emerging technologies such as React Native, leading to the creation of the now popular library React Native Firebase.
