Building hybrid mobile apps that leverage the power of the web with HTML, CSS and JavaScript as well as native capabilities backed by their respective SDKs can be fun, functional and compelling. In this session we will take you through building a hybrid mobile app starting from conception to a working application for iOS and Android devices. We will show you rapid development using the no cost tools IBM Worklight Studio and the new lightweight IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile – so now you can truly reap the rewards of the rapid development enabled by many great open source projects such as: jQuery, jQuery Mobile, Apache Cordova and many others. We will then end the session by highlighting various deployment challenges to developing hybrid applications.
