Rebecca Murphey: Mobile Apps with Mulberry

Please note that we have a change in location:

We are now in the "Diamond View I" conference room overlooking the Durham Bulls Stadium.  Its the building with the Suntrust and Fox logos on it.

The actual location is 512 South Mangum St, however it should be easier to pretend you're going to the Durham Performing Arts Center (123 Vivian Street) as it will be very easy to park there at the East Deck and walk over.

Parking is free to all after 5pm (as there is no DPAC show that night).  The meeting location is one of the back buildings and is labeled "512" - please go in the lobby, we'll be in a room to the right on the same floor.

In our February meetup, Rebecca Murphey introduces us to Toura's Mulberry:

Mulberry takes the promise of PhoneGap — mobile apps built with web technologies — and smooths over many of the “gotchas” that front-end developers confront as they venture into client-side application development in a mobile environment. When you use Mulberry to help you build mobile apps with web technologies, here are just a few of the things you get out of the box:

  • Ready-to-deploy apps to Android, iPhone, and iPad
  • Rapid in-browser iteration, eliminating the need for constant, time-consuming device builds
  • Over-the-air data updates that persist for offline use, keeping your app’s content current without requiring resubmission
  • Integration of common plugins and components
  • A complete framework for creating dynamic JavaScript applications

Mulberry provides all of this and more, giving you the building blocks you need to create a content-rich application that will work on iOS and Android, whether your user is online or off. With Mulberry’s clear patterns and simple APIs, you can develop a robust “single-page” application that you can immediately deploy to the iOS and Android app stores. When you’re ready to build your next app, your components, templates, and themes will plug easily into any application that uses the Mulberry framework.
