Learn the foundations for developing mobile apps that you can submit to the store using skills you already know as a web developer.

Developing mobile apps is very attractive for many reasons, but the cost and time investment to get started is intimidating for most. Developing a native app for every platform requires a different development toolset as well as duplicate code bases. Mobile web apps have a single code base but limited access to native device capabilities and are not store deployable. In this session, you will learn the foundations for developing mobile apps that you can submit to the store using the skills you already know as a web developer.

You will learn:

  • The differences between building apps using Web, Native or Hybrid
  • How to develop cross-platform mobile apps using HTML5, JavaScript and CSS
  • How to get started with PhoneGap and Apache Cordova
