Forget Native: Learn to Write HTML5 Mobile Apps

#sxsw #html5apps


RSVP Required - You want to write a bunch of mobile applications, but you dread learning the Objective-C of iOS, the flavors of "bastardized Java" for Android and BlackBerry, or the C#/Visual Basic of Windows Phone. Never fear—armed with your existing knowledge of HTML and CSS, you too can write some killer, device agnostic, mobile applications and even learn the required steps for taking part in each device's hardware functionality.
Native development can be great for games and those needing hardcore CPU or graphics processing power. But most of the non-gaming applications you use everyday can be (or already are) written in HTML5 offering you one code-base to serve a diverse hardware market.
In addition to training and creating their first, basic HTML5 mobile application, attendees will also learn about marketing and delivery options for non-native applications.

This Workshop is Geared For anyone confident in their existing HTML and CSS skills.

What to Bring:
Laptop & Smartphone
