Sencha Touch, a high-performance HTML5 mobile application framework, is the cornerstone of the Sencha HTML5 platform. Built for enabling world-class user experiences, Sencha Touch is the only framework that enables developers to build powerful apps that work on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and more. With the new release of Sencha Touch 2.3 and Sencha Cmd v4 it is easier than ever to build mobile web and hybrid Cordova/PhoneGap packaged apps leveraging HTML5.
Be prepared to get UNLEASHED by diving in and writing Sencha Touch applications to deploy on the web or native immediately! During this half-day workshop Christopher Rhodes will focus on using Sencha Touch to build an app connected to a RESTful NodeJS service. He will start from the beginning with bootstrapping a Sencha Touch application, creating the user-interface (UI), connecting to the REST service and testing. Once a working app exists, the next step is adding native functionality using PhoneGap/Cordova plugins. Attendees will leave this workshop with the knowledge of how to be dangerous with Sencha Touch.
