Appery.io Bootcamp

**  NOTE:  THE VENUE HAS CHANGED ** 
We will now be meeting at Drew University's Hall of Sciences on the 3rd floor.

To make sure everyone is properly prepared for our Appery.io Build Day, we will be hosting a 2-hour Bootcamp the morning of the event. From 10am-12pm, we will show you everything you'll need to know to start building your app.

Areas we'll be covering include:
- App Settings
- Templates
- Login/Registration
- Using their Database
- Using Web Services

    I know it's a bit late but want to thank Jason and Savio for this meetup. Wasn't sure what to expect as this was my first codejunkies class. Unfortunately, I was only able to attend the bootcamp and not the afternoon session. One question for Jason. Why appery.io? Have you tried other platforms like this and this was the best? Curious about the main reasons why you settled on appery as I imagine there are other comparable services. And any downsides that you see with appery at this point just so we are aware before getting in to deep with appery? I'm thinking of building a simple app with two distinct functionalities. One piece will be to just pull in and display an RSS feed and two, another to set up a simple db whose entries get displayed, similar to NextDraft. I want it to display but I also want an easy input form to input text with links that would be displayed.

    If anyone is interested in working together because they are thinking the same thing, let me know.

      Hi Paul... The only reason I chose Appery.io over all of the other options out there was because I really like how "open" it is. You can build your app using their services, and then export the files to any number of platforms, (xCode, Eclipse, Visual Studio, or just raw HTML, CSS, and Javascript)

      Since the group as a whole has such a wide ranging skillset, I thought this would be a great platform to help getting everyone on the same level, as a starting point. You'll see over the next few months that we plan to expand those skills even further, by venturing onto other tools and services. Keep an eye out for group email that will go into more detail about our vision for Code Junkies.

    Thanks to the organizers, top notch meetup as usual. Here is my end-result - http://ivan.themworks.com/MyWeather. An app built with Appery.io that shows current temperature and how many days before rain/snow for any location in the world. I will use it to know when to wash my car. Somebody mentioned it might be useful for farmers.

      But that's a good thing actually. And most of the requirements are addressed in the appery.io settings. One of the most important rules IMO, is that they require the app to be "complete" you can't have sections that say coming soon, or blank pages.

      Apple can take over a week to approve an app, where as Android and Windows can do it within a day or so.

    the meetup was fantastic.. but now that i am working on a real app. i have a few questions.

    1. user authentication - is it ok to have Oauth or hit the appery server. any suggestions.

    2. need to save user preferences. do we save it locally or again hit the server. any guidelines would be really welcome.

    Got a little lost, but if I was going to get lost it was going to be in a beautiful place like drew university. I liked the class, helping us understand javascript through Appery.io. But unlike most classes he knows we all want to see results so he shows us what we need to know and then lets us experiment with the knowledge he gave us. Exactly how I would if taught my class! Great job guys!

    April 26, 2014

    • Ivan V.

      You might be in a wrong building. We made that mistake.

  • Alan N. W.

    With a group of people who can't find Hall of Science 308. Please advise. We're in front of Brothers Hall.

    April 26, 2014

    • Alan N. W.

      We made the mistake of working thru Brothers. Don't. Turn right at the front of the building.

  • Glenn M.

    Where is this, in the basement of the Alamo?

    April 26, 2014

  • Jason G.

    For everyone having trouble finding the room, or the hall of sciences. This is the building with all of the construction going on. Once you get into the building we are on the 3rd floor. Room 308.

    I was able to find parking behind the houses across the street from the building .

  • Alan N. W.

    Coffee available?

    April 22, 2014

    • Jason G.

      @Alan, Coffee & Bagels are confirmed. @Pat - I think to be fare, I'm going to ask people to bring their own preferred "non-alcoholic"­ beverages aside from Coffee, Bottled Water. For example, I'm not really a Coffee drinker, so I plan on bringing a few bottles of Dr. Pepper keep my Caffeine at an optimum level.

      April 25, 2014

    • Alan N. W.

      Thanks, Jason. I guess now I have no excuse for not staying alert.

    is a linux box ok.

    • Mike G.

      Jason could you be more specific re: modern browser? Any other system requirements? Thank you

      April 24, 2014

    • Jason G.

      Mike - A modern browser would be considered a newer (or newest) version of Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, or Internet Explorer. However if you are using Internet Explorer, I highly suggest using IE 11.

  • Mike G.

    Sorry I'm a bit of a novice. That said can this be accomplished on a Galaxy S4?

    April 22, 2014

    • Leslie

      I played around with it myself and there is a neat testing app you can download to your android (I have a Galaxy S4 myself) to (obviously) test your apps. The app is called Appery.io Tester. You run it and log into your account and the app you have built in Appery.io will be listed and you just click and run it. It looks like by using the tester app you don't have to keep downloading new versions of the app you are writing each time you make a change.

      April 22, 2014

    • Mike G.

      Thank you Leslie!
