Intro to Mobile Development for Web, IOS & Android Native Apps using PhoneGap

PLUS: News Reports, Q&A Bull Session (bring your problems), occasional surprises, and the usual band of miscreants, regulars, and irregulars.  

Presenter: Jorge Garifuna

We all know that Mobile Development is the big talk of the moment, but getting started brings more questions than answers. Questions such as: Where do you start? What platforms do you target? and/or Do you have to learn COCOA, JAVA, HTML5, CSS3 and all those technologies that you may not know much about?

The good news is that you can relax for now, because there is a new and exciting way to do it all in simple ways. In this workshop you will learn the following in a few short hours… Oh and actually be productive from day one:

  •   How to design and build a single application that runs perfectly on: mobile web browsers, iPhone (native app), iPad(native app) and Android(native app).
  • How to test your application in IOS Simulator
  • How to test your application in Android Simulator
  • How to transfer your application to an actual iPhone and/or iPad
  • How to transfer your application to an actual Android phone
  • How to deploy your Android application to the Android Market and Amazon AppStore
  • How to deploy your iPhone/iPad application to the Apple AppStore

    Hello everyone, thank you for coming out to the presentation last night. I really had a great time with the group. As I mentioned at the event, I have just released an App on the Android market by the name of Future Value of Your Money. The App was developed using the same techniques I discussed last night, but with the Sencha Touch Framework. If you have an Android device, you may try it now FREE of charge. I would appreciate your feedback. Details at:

    Good coverage as an intro. A bit redundant at times. Wish we could have talked more about layering on native integration, backend/API/DB interactions, device/local storage. Perhaps next parrt of this intro?
