Build Native Mobile Apps using JavaScript and Ionic

Ionic lets you build mobile apps using only JavaScript. The Ionic framework ( is a free and open source library of mobile-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components along with tools for building highly interactive native and progressive web apps. Built with Sass, optimized for AngularJS.

In this session, you will see how you can build rich powerful, robust, mobile applications that are clean simple and functional. These applications can use Cordova (, PhoneGap ( to deploy natively or be a modern day web application.

All you need for this session is to know are HTML, CSS, and JavaScript: the building blocks of the web. You’ll even learn AngularJS as you work with Ionic and this talk.

Time permitting: Look into your Application with Visual Studio Application Insights

Visual Studio Application Insights helps you to detect issues, diagnoses crashes and track your application usage in your application, both web, and mobile.

Let’s see how you can get alerts on performance and availability issues, monitor our applications usage and performance, get telemetry for our application without needing to redeploy the applications, search traces, and exceptions logs to figure out what is wrong. Oh, did I mention we can monitor Android, iOS, Windows Mobile applications as well as ASP.NET applications?

We’ll also take a look at how we can analyze request load, server performance counters and response times across dependencies. Get multi-dimensional analyzes over standard metrics or define your own. Diagnose exceptions, mobile application crashes, and failed requests, correlating with events and traces.
