Cross-Platform Mobile Web Application Development Training in London

We are very happy to announce the first edition of the Cross-Platform Mobile Web Application Development Training in London!

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

This three day intensive course, brought to you jointly by Zerofee and akosma software 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.

The training will cover the following:

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

What you will walk away with

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.

  • 3 days of intensive, hands-on training in a small group (max 12 people), with plenty of time to talk to the instructor.
  • A complimentary copy of the Mobile JavaScript Application Development book.
  • Full lunch meal.
  • Plenty of snacks and drinks during the day.
