Free Ebook Build a WhatsApp Clone in a Weekend

The market for messaging apps, led by SMS texts, has become a huge global industry. Among the most popular – and disruptive – messaging apps of the moment are those that transmit via the Internet rather than cellular networks. One example is WhatsApp, which made headlines when it was acquired by Facebook earlier this year.

  • Creating and initializing the app backend
  • Onboarding users
