Hi guys! Thank you so much for this AMA. I am a huge fan ❤️. Here are a few questions that I have:
Where is Expo headed? How will it monetise the product considering it is free and open source? 💸
What does it take to be a part of the Expo team? 😄
Do you plan to implement an end to end solution where Expo provides a pipeline to the app stores directly? I am talking in the terms of a Continuous Delivery platform where my build will directly be pushed on the App Stores once it is ready. 🤔
Right now anything I build in Expo has a file size of about 26 MB. I read on your website that "this is because Expo includes a bunch of APIs regardless of whether or not you are using them". Is this something which can be solved someday? 🗄
What is your take on React Navigation Library? Even though it is the one recommended by Facebook, certain GitHub threads for it are simply rants. I also see @brentvatne actively contributing to it. Do you see it being the perfect RN Navigation solution in the future? 🧐
What does Expo team do for fun fun? 🤪
A few months back, Expo experienced a down time where users could not login. What exactly happened? How did you all deal with it? 😯
Redux or MobX? 🤓
Thanks for making Expo. Cheers. 🍻
I would like to tease out one of Kashish's (many) questions because I think it deserves to be addressed on it's own.

Hi guys! I'm huge fan of Expo!!
First question is:
I would like to ask you, if we need to Detaching to ExpoKit for some npm modules why we need expo? Actually i don't want to touch native iOS or Android layer. But sometimes it is hard to find module for expo compatible.
Of course it is hard to cover all issues but some are really important. For example I'm using firebase features like realtime db etc. But i also want to use Firebase analytic (instead of google analytic), app indexing, admob etc. I believe these kind of features have to be in Expo. What you think about supporting firebase features?
Hello! I’m fan of Expo! Been following you since you started!
What’s the story behind Snack? I was briefly a contibutor of React Native Playground and I felt that Joshua (original creator, I think) had built something really awesome and I wanted to contribute by redesigning the layout which turned out to be really cool (at least I want to think so xD).
👋 Hi team!
1) What can the community do to help you in the great endeavor that is Expo? (besides using it)
2) If there's one feature you could wish for and have it "magically" appear on the RN and/or expo codebase what would that be?
3) Have you tried out Flutter and if so what are your takeaways.
4) Are you working on ReasonML bindings for expo?
//Stay awesome! ❤️
