  • 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!
