Mobile app development is still in its infancy. Because of this, the tools available for troubleshooting are quite limited. Debugging apps - especially cross- and multi-platform - can be extremely difficult. Fortunately there are a few cutting edge technologies and techniques that can ease the pain while we wait for more mainstream solutions.

What will be covered?

  • Webkit developer tools
  • Remote JavaScript console with JS Console
  • Remote DOM inspection with WEINRE
  • Web debugging proxy with Charles
  • Remote hardware access with DeviceAnywhere

Who is this webcast for?

This webcast is for front-end designers and developers who are interested in creating web or hybrid mobile apps. A working familiarity with standard HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is recommended.
