Course intended for:

The training is intended for programmers, who would like to get familiar with technologies that enable development of inter-platform mobile applications. In particular, it is intended for programming teams, which are responsible for development of the same applications for several mobile platforms under a strong pressure of time.

Course objective:

The users will find out how to develop inter-platform mobile applications using the PhoneGap framework, HTML5 and AngularJS library. They will get familiar with the technology, which allows for elimination of the basic problem, associated with mobile device software: the necessity to develop separate versions of the application for each platform - Android or iOS. The participants will find out how to use the most recent version of the HTML and CSS specification, as well as the AngularJS library, to develop an application with a rich user interface, taking advantage of the hardware capabilities of individual platforms thanks to PhoneGap.

Requirements:

The training participants are required to have the basic programming skills and familiarity with HTML.

Course parameters:

3*8 hours (3*7 net hours) of lectures and workshops (with a visible emphasis on workshops).

Group size: no more than 8-10 participants.
