The open source PhoneGap framework (technically Cordova, PhoneGap is Adobe’s implementation) allows developers to make use of HTML, JavaScript, and CSS to create native applications for seven different mobile platforms, including iOS and Android.

In this workshop, I’ll cover the background and history of the PhoneGap project, what it provides, and the types of tools you can use to create mobile applications.

Along with discussing the framework, I’ll also cover how to make use of the PhoneGap Build service to make it easier to deploy builds out to clients.

Finally – we will spend some time discussing debugging and testing techniques.

Like the humour a lot, and the content even better. Cordova is a pretty cool technology and Ray answered questions pretty well.

It doesn’t matter. This is a lecture style workshop, you won’t have to follow along. If you want to, then all you need to worry about is having Chrome installed.

Does it matter what environment? (IIS? LAMP [or WAMP/WAMPP]?)
