Service Fabric is a distributed system platform that abstracts out much of the complexity of packaging, deploying and managing scale and reliable applications. There are plenty of cool online material that provide introduction on Service Bus, including videos. I will not repeat them myself, but instead provide links and a brief description about them. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/service-fabric/ Landing page for SF documentation https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/service-fabric/service-fabric-overview 7-min long introduction with links to a couple of videos https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/resources/videos/index/?services=service-fabric Lots of videos about SF https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/service-fabric/service-fabric-create-your-first-application-in-visual-studio Hello World!?!

Pros and cons of each tool is available on the page. https://www.codementor.io/fmcorz/react-native-vs-ionic-du1087rsw This is a slightly older article (Aug 2016) that compares React Native and Ionic, focusing on development process, testing, community, etc. The author doesn’t choose the better tool, but instead indicates his favorite: React Native. https://medium.com/react-id/ionic-framework-hybrid-app-vs-react-native-4facdd93f690#.zek9fvi1g This article also compares Ionic and Reatic Native, but focus more on app performance and size.
