The Ionic Framework is a tremendous step forward for quickly building Cordova-based mobile apps. Built on top of AngularJS, developers are able to leverage all of their pre-existing AngularJS skills when working with the Ionic Framework, considered by many to be the "Bootstrap for mobile." In this presentation, we will see how to quickly get up and running with an Ionic app in seconds. We will then cover navigation and routing, followed by demonstrations of all the primary Ionic components. We will also cover data and caching for offline functionality, as well as mapping and providing driving directions. We will finish with a review of ngCordova to easily access native device features such as the camera, barcode scanner, and more. By the end of the presentation, you'll be able to start building your own mobile apps using the Ionic Framework and AngularJS!
