After the release of Ionic 1, it quickly became the most popular framework for building cross-platform mobile apps with familiar web technologies. Enabling developers to use Angular, JavaScript, CSS, and HTML was a tremendous leap forward in productivity. Ionic 2 is the next evolution of this incredibly popular cross-platform mobile framework. Ionic 2 enables you to leverage Angular 2 and TypeScript to build apps, while adding even more features to the already robust Ionic framework, including significant performance improvements. In this demo-heavy session we’ll cover several topics including Ionic’s navigation framework, Ionic components, working with HTTP, as well as leveraging native device capabilities such as the camera, geolocation, barcode scanner, and more!
