Building Mobile Apps

Video Description

Serving customers a substandard website experience on their mobile devices costs you sales, hurts your brand, and turns your customers away. In this video workshop, mobile strategy consultant Jonathan Stark shows your in-house web team how to use the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript skills they already have to build killer mobile websites and apps.

Many companies opt to learn native mobile technologies instead, but familiar web tools let you design sites that work on multiple devices and help you build apps that can access native mobile device APIs. Your team already possesses 90% of the knowledge and skills they need to get started. This workshop will help them gain confidence that comes from direct experience.

Training topics include:

  • Principles of Mobile Interface Design—Explore practical principles through visual examples
  • Responsive Web Design Bootcamp—Adopt future-friendly strategies that support a full range of user contexts with a single codebase
  • Advanced CSS Styling & Animation—Deliver 2D & 3D transformations, simple transitions, powerful animations, and other advanced visual effects
  • Touch & Gesture Event Handling—Speed up your site’s responsiveness with touch events and gesture interactions
  • Building Hybrid Apps with PhoneGap—Create apps for Google Play and other app stores that access native mobile device APIs
  • Debugging Mobile Web Apps—Learn cutting-edge tools for debugging websites and apps across multiple platforms and devices
