Presentation

Overview

Note that this is a pre-festival workshop day (Sept 12), and therefore is only available to those who have ‘the works’ tickets, or the ‘pre-festival workshop’ tickets

Designed at this year’s iPhoneDevCamp, PhoneGap is an open source initiative for bringing native device capabilities to mobile browsers. With PhoneGap, developers can author applications in HTML and Javascript while still taking advantage of native mobile device capabilities, such as geo location, camera, vibration, local storage, sound and more. PhoneGap runs on a variety of mobile platforms including iPhone, Android and Blackberry.

In this three-hour workshop, attendees will become familiar with the PhoneGap framework, and will learn how to build applications and contribute back to the PhoneGap project.

What you will learn:

* How to get started building PhoneGap applications
* An overview of Objective-C, Javascript API and XUI framework
* How to overcome barriers to cross-device development
* How to build applications for web-enabled devices with open standards
* How to test and deploy an application to a mobile device
* How to quickly and easily convert web applications to a native mobile app
* Differences in capabilities across devices
* How to retrofit existing web applications to utilize phone features

Join us to discover how you can use your HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills to take full advantage of the mobile web.
