Creating App Store Ready Apps with PhoneGap

I recently gave an online presentation on “Creating App Store Ready Apps with PhoneGap” to the Creative Cloud Lovers User Group. So if you are interested in knowing more about PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build, some spend an hour with me. Here is the blurb about the presentation:
So, you have a Creative Cloud subscription… great! Did you know you have the capability to create “app store ready” applications using PhoneGap Build, a part of that Creative Cloud subscription?Join us online to see how PhoneGap (a.k.a. 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 (Application Programming Interface), how the software components interact, and walk you through how to work with the JavaScript methods.

PhoneGap allows you to create interactive, feature-rich mobile applications (and if you subscribe to the Creative Cloud, you already own it!). You will also get an introduction to PhoneGap Build which allows you to package mobile apps in the cloud.

Thoughts on Fireworks

Many of you are aware of the recent announcement of the sunsetting of Adobe Fireworks. This has generated some incredible passion and anger among the community. I love Fireworks, it has been a staple in my digital workflows for years. But, I know that the only constant in the software industry is change. I have seen myself migrate from developing in HyperCard to Director to Flash/Flex, and now to the web platform. This is how our industry works. Heck, there are still times when I miss SuperPaint or SoundEdit, but I use the tools that I have. Unlike the removal of the Touch Apps from the app stores, Adobe Fireworks remains available as part the Creative Cloud, and will keep working just fine on your machine.

So keep calm and carry on…
