Partner Event: *Free* Full Day - HTML5 Mobile App Training - Bethesda

Please Register on Eventbrite and see prerequisites below.

Tim Anglade from Apigee will be teaching a free 1-day intro to Mobile App development, next week in Bethesda Wednesday Dec. 4 (http://apigee-bethesda-2013.eventbrite.com/) and in Arlington Thursday Dec. 5 (http://apigee-arlingtonva-2013.eventbrite.com/). Tim has taught this class a dozen times before, for over 3,000 students in cities such as San Francisco, LA, Denver, Austin, and at conferences such as HTML5 Conf and OSCON.

The premise is simple: in one day, you’ll learn everything you need to know to build your first HTML5 Mobile App, including: HTML & JavaScript basics, PhoneGap, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, and how to use a backend-as-a-service (Usergrid).

The classes are completely free (and all the software & services you’ll be using are too — most of them are even open-source). We hope to see you & your colleagues there!
