About the presentation:
We all know that Mobile Development is the big talk of the moment, but getting started brings more questions than answers. Questions such as: Where do you start? What platforms do you target? and/or Do you have to learn COCOA, JAVA, HTML5, CSS3 and all those technologies that you may not know much about?
The good news is that you can relax for now, because there is a new and exciting way to do it all in simple ways. In this workshop you will learn the following in a few short hours… Oh and actually be productive from day one:
How to design and build a single application that runs perfectly on: mobile web browsers, iPhone (native app), iPad(native app) and Android(native app).
- How to test your application in IOS Simulator
- How to test your application in Android Simulator
- How to transfer your application to an actual iPhone and/or iPad
- How to transfer your application to an actual Android phone
- How to deploy your Android application to the Android Market and Amazon AppStore
- How to deploy your iPhone/iPad application to the Apple AppStore
