The Online CF Meetup is back! (More speakers welcome, as always, and other more CF-specific topics are being lined up.)

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Feb 18 will be "NativeScript - an open source platform to build Native iOS/Android Apps", with Dan WIlson and TJ VanToll

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Would you like to use your existing skills to build truly native iOS and Android mobile applications? In this presentation, we'll look at NativeScript, an open source platform for doing just that. Not only do you get to use the skills you already have, but you can take advantage of millions of lines of code already written for you on NPM. NativeScript is free, open source and approachable for ColdFusion developers.
