As taken by over 3,000 people in San Francisco, New York, Austin, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Seattle and more!  The classes are completely free (and all the software & services we’ll be using are too — most of them are even open-source)

This class will teach you everything you need to build a mobile app for iOS or Android – as well as Windows Phone, Blackberry or a mobile browser. In addition to reviewing important mobile features of HTML5 and Javascript, you will also learn how to use a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add app features with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to deploy your app to devices natively using PhoneGap. By the end of the workshop, we will have built a fully-featured app, ready for release on the app store, without having written a single line of server-side code!

Pre-requisites:
* A laptop: minimum OS requirements are Mac OS X[masked], Windows XP, or any linux that supports JDK6
* Basic understanding of HTML & CSS and some programming experience (ideally in JavaScript and jQuery, but not necessarily): it may be useful for you to go through the following Codecademy lessons to brush up before you attend: classes 1–3 of the Web course, classes 1–6 of the JavaScript course and classes 1–5 of the jQuery course.
* A working install of PhoneGap/Cordova. Please download PhoneGap and complete the “Platform Guide” for your preferred platform (iOS, Android, etc.) ahead of the class.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
