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+Usergrid!

The classes are completely free (and all the software & services we’ll be using are too — most of them are even open-source)

This class will teach you the essentials you need to build a mobile app for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, or a mobile browser. We'll review important aspects of mobile development and discuss using HTML5 and Javascript as a development option. You will also learn how to leverage a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add, store and retrieve data with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to package your app for devices (and the app stores) using PhoneGap.

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!

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 one 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 build real apps on your own. Past example includes: 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.
