Event Details

Join us for a free one-day training course to learn everything you
need to know to build your first mobile app
with HTML5+PhoneGap+jQuery code!

Join us to learn how to create mobile apps in a hands-on, friendly, fast-paced environment!

What You'll Learn

The HTML5 class will teach you everything you need to build apps that work on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, mobile browsers, etc.

You will learn how to use jQuery Mobile as a mobile UI framework, how to add app features with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid), and how to deploy your app to devices natively using PhoneGap. We will also review the important mobile features of HTML5 & JavaScript.

By the end of the workshop, we will have built a fully-featured app, ready for release on the app store, without having written a single line of server-side code!

Classes are completely free! All the software & services we’ll be using are, too — most of them are even open-source.

For Your Boss

You’re sold? Need to convince your boss? Well, just tell him about all the things you’ll get to learn in just half a day!

  • If you’re a web designer, you will learn how to design interfaces for mobile websites and mobile apps quickly, and even how to implement them on your own into working prototypes, allowing your to tackle your company’s mobile projects this year.
  • If you’re a front-end engineer, you will learn how to build mobile applications that look & feel like native apps, using the tools you’re already proficient with: HTML, CSS and JavaScript/jQuery.
  • If you’re a native app developer, you will learn another way to build mobile apps, that allows your company to quickly launch projects for multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, etc.) using the same codebase!
  • If you’re already an HTML5 or advanced app developer, you will learn how to use a Backend-as-a-service to quickly prototype, deploy and efficiently scale your company’s mobile apps without needing a backend team to keep it running.
  • If you’re a backend developer, you will learn everything you need to know about the constraints of developing & launching mobile apps, what it means for backend architectures, and how large companies with tens of thousands of employees and millions of users manager their data backends for mobile apps
  • In just one day, you will learn everything you need to start building real apps on your own. Past examples include: store locator, employee directory, Yelp-like app, mobile intranet, HR applicant tracker, lunch ordering system, conference app, room reservation system, and many more! Spend one day in this training and you’ll have the tools to tackle any mobile project your boss or customer throws at you.
