You will familiarize yourself with the Corona SDK, the Corona Framework, and the Lua programming language, an easy to use language, similar to Actionscript/Javascript.

This revolutionary tool offers rapid prototyping and iteration, reliable development, and faster publishing directly to the App Store. With Corona, you’ll access the full power of the iPhone’s capabilities such as accelerometer, touch, photos, video, and more! Several applications built in Corona are currently available in the App Store. Download Ansca Corona SDK while it's free.

Food and beverages will be served at no additional cost.

This workshop is presented by Carlos Icaza, co-founder of Ansca, and Marine Leroux, founder of Bamboudesign, a San Francisco-based mobile software design company.
