Take Full Advantage of NativeScript
Led by Nathan Walker and Alex Ziskind

Spending several years working across multiple industries helped establish a focused sensibility with client needs. While serving as a member of the NativeScript Technical Steering Committee, he cofounded nStudio and has been working to deliver on client needs ever since.

Alex Ziskind is the founder of NativeScripting which offers rich video courses on a growing list of topics.
