Ubiquitous App development with PhoneGap

A session at CodeMash 2012

Friday 13th January, 2012

10:45am to 11:45am (EST)

You’ve been tasked to build an app for your company that does x,y, and z. You’ve also been informed that it needs to work on iOS and Android. You think “no problem!” -- that’s what HTML 5 is for! But then you find out that the app needs native features like GPS and a camera. What are you to do? PhoneGap is an innovative framework that allows you to build mobile apps in HTML 5 that have access to device features reserved for native apps. Simply put: with PhoneGap, you can build HTML 5 apps that can use device features like geolocation, the accelerometer, and even a camera, for example. In this session, you’ll learn how to build a web-based mobile app using HTML 5 and JavaScript that is able to live inside the PhoneGap container and take advantage of native features, such as GPS. You’ll see that with PhoneGap the same web app can then be deployed onto an iOS device and an Android one. One app. Multiple device platforms. Job done.
