5-Days PhoneGap Mobile Application Development Training Course


About the Program

PhoneGap is like a 'Swiss Army Knife' for mobile app developers. When developers have the ability to craft applications for multiple platforms with little to no barrier, amazing things can happen.

Nitobi’s PhoneGap is an open source solution designed to give web developers JavaScript access to popular mobile device features, like the camera, GPS, the accelerometer, local SQLite databases and more, without having to write full applications.

How does it work?
The PhoneGap framework acts as a bridge between web applications and mobile devices. It lets developers wrap web applications inside a native application, making development easier for those who aren’t familiar with Objective-C and Cocoa or the Android Development Kit.

Course Pre-requisites
All attendees should have a solid knowledge of HTML, simple CSS, and JavaScript. They should be comfortable creating JavaScript objects and functions, DOM programming and working with browser events.

Course Objectives
At course completion, participants will be able to:
• Build mobile JavaScript applications using jQuery Mobile
• Understand the overall architecture of PhoneGap apps and the develop, build, deploy process
• Work hands on with the tool chain for creating PhoneGap apps for mobile platforms
• Learn to make smart design plans based on the capabilities of mobile JavaScript
• Access mobile device hardware, such as cameras, using PhoneGap's JavaScript APIs
• Interact with remote services from a PhoneGap app
