Orange Co. MultiMedia Meetup:General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite- Orange County

  • Oct 15, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Digital Media Center

Joint General Meeting/Adobe Creative Suite User Group

Introduction to PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build

For those of you who attended our Adobe CreateNOW Camp back in June, you'll remember that Adobe Community Professional Chris Griffith presented a session all about Adobe's Edge Tools & Services. This time Chris is joining us to talk about PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build. See how PhoneGap (Apache Cordova), an open-source framework, and the Adobe PhoneGap Build service, part of the Adobe Creative Cloud, allow you to create cross-platform mobile apps using the web technologies you know and love: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Learn how PhoneGap works and how it will enable you to start building mobile apps with web standards. This talk will introduce you to the PhoneGap API and walk you through how to interact with the JavaScript methods to create interactive, feature-rich mobile applications. You will also get an introduction to PhoneGap Build which allows you to package mobile apps in the cloud.

Topics to be covered:

• Getting started with the PhoneGap API

• Interacting with the native device features (camera, video)

• Accessing and using the geolocation sensors

• Compiling the application using PhoneGap Build

    A big thank you to Chris Griffith for providing a clear explanation and demo on the latest from PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build. He even inspired some of us "non-coders" to take the plunge!

    Chris Griffith did a superb job of explaining what Phone Gap is and how to use it. I was expecting a demonstration of how Dreamweaver CC has Phone Gap Build integrated but was able to get that supplement at Adobe TV (http://adobe.ly/13V2DUg).
