Join us for a hands-on live webcast to learn everything you need to know to build a mobile app for iOS, Android, Windows Phone or Blackberry! In this talk adapted from Tim Anglade's (@timanglade) popular mobile training series we'll use standard tools like HTML5, jQuery, PhoneGap and APIs to demonstrate how to quickly assemble cross-platform mobile apps that behave natively on your preferred mobile platform, and are ready to handle "catastrophic" success on the app store.

In this webcast we will:

  • Review standards
  • Look at UI prototyping tools
  • Learn how to integrate data sources & storage
  • Learn how to package your app for delivery on the app store

We'll have our first app working on a device in under one hour, with plenty of time to spare for questions.

Pre-requisites: Being able to read HTML and JavaScript will be useful to follow along. We will pass around links to all tools & code used during the class.
