Let's build a mobile app with WordPress!

Last month Brian touched on building mobile apps. This month he's back, and we are going to build an iOS, Android and Windows application from scratch with AppPresser. AppPresser is a new framework that leverages WordPress and PhoneGap to easily build mobile applications. Why spend additional time and money building a mobile app that requires the same functionality of your WordPress website and needs to share data with your WordPress website when you can build a mobile app from your WordPress website. Once we build our app we will go over how to deploy it to the app stores.

OPENING PRESENTATION: Growing WooCommerce

WooCommerce was conceptualized as a means to add shopping facilities to WordPress themes. It’s now the fastest growing eCommerce platform online. Mark Forrester, co-founder of Woothemes, is in town and will share the story of commercial success using the freemium model and the growing pains of scaling WooThemes accordingly.

GET ONE-ON-ONE ASSISTANCE AT OUR HELP DESK:  

The experts from Tadpole.cc will be available throughout the evening to help you with your WordPress issues and answer your questions.

"WPNYC GIVES BACK" RAFFLE:

We will raffle off $1 for each user that RSVP's. This money will be split between:

• One WPNYC member.

• A WordPress developer that has donated a free theme or plugin to the community (chosen by the member winner)

    Thanks,

      No audio! Surely not!

    • Joly M.

      Brief audio cutouts are caused by me overdriving the level,. Settles down after a bit.
