From Zero to App Store in One Day! by Apigee

Join the folks at Apigee for a free one-day training course to learn everything you need to know to build your first mobile app — with HTML5+PhoneGap+jQuery+Usergrid!


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)

View of the Austin Training

This class will teach you the essentials you need to build a mobile app for iOS or Android – as well as Windows Phone, Blackberry or a mobile browser. We'll review important aspects of mobile development and discuss using HTML5 and Javascript as a development option. You will also learn how to leverage a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add, store and retrieve data with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to package your app for devices (and the app stores) 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!


• A laptop: minimum OS requirements are Mac OS X[masked], Windows XP, or any linux that supports JDK6
