Building apps comes with the challenge of building an awesome front-end for the app user. Custom widgets from the App Store or self-built widgets can be a great help.

Join this meetup for a closer look at widgets and how to build them. Whether you're a hardcore widget wizard or know nothing about JavaScript, this evening has everything:

• When to use custom widgets?
• What can be achieved using the default widgets?
• How to debug a custom widget?
• How to deal with issues, as a citizen developer/business engineer without extensive JavaScript knowledge?
• Build your own widget from scratch
• Mx Widget API
• Plugable widgets
