  • Introduction to PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build
  • Time: Wednesday @ 5:00pm | Room E-133

See how PhoneGap (Apache Cordova), an open-source framework, and the Adobe PhoneGap Build service, part of the Adobe Creative Cloud, allow you to create cross-platform mobile apps using the web technologies you know and love: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Learn how PhoneGap works and how it will enable you to start building mobile apps with web standards. This talk will introduce you to the PhoneGap API and walk you through how to interact with the JavaScript methods to create interactive, feature-rich mobile applications.

  • Interacting with the native device features (camera, video)
  • Accessing and using the geolocation sensors
