Third Edition of the Mobile Web Training in Zürich

Simplificator and akosma software are thrilled to announce the third edition of our successful three day training about mobile web app development using jQuery Mobile, Sencha Touch and PhoneGap in Zürich on May 16th, 17th and 18th!

Today, having a mobile application online is a must. But there are multiple platforms to write for, each with their own language, idioms and pitfalls. Luckily there is a simple solution that allows to write once and deploy on all modern mobile devices: HTML5 and JavaScript.

What others have been saying

  • “Die Inhalte wurden lebendig und Step-by-Step präsentiert”
  • “Merci, das war ein sehr lehrreicher Kurs”20111003-112818.jpg

Easy, quick dev of “native” applications

This three day intensive course takes you from being a web developer to being a mobile developer. We take you through the basics of writing HTML5 applications for mobile devices, cover the additional APIs that allow you to access the functions of the devices (like storage, geo-location, accelerometers) and put you in control of deploying an application to either iOS or Android devices.

What

  • Overview over what HTML5 brings for mobile development
  • Overview over options for bringing web apps to a mobile device
  • In depth review of jQuery Mobile and Sencha Touch
  • JavaScript best practices
  • Bundling your app for the device with PhoneGap
  • Accessing your devices sensors and special features from JavaScript

There will be lots of hands-on working building an application from scratch and bringing it to life on your mobile device. We will build two applications – one with jQuery Mobile, one with Sencha Touch and bring them to “life” as native applications on a mobile device.

Prerequisites

  • HTML / CSS
  • Basic JavaScript skills
  • Programming experience
  • Laptop with either iOS SDK (Mac OSX with XCode) or Android SDK (Mac, Windows, Linux) installed and running
  • Mobile device (iOS, Android)

Learning and working is best done in a relative small group. We plan on having maximum 9 people in this class so that we can spend enough time with each of our students.
