Want to learn how to use Adobe XD in your workflow? I will be giving an online training course through UXPA on August 1 and August 8, 2018. This workshop will first introduce you to its design tools, once we have our design in place, we will use its built-in prototyping features to create an interactive demonstration of our design. We will go further by showing how we can share our concepts with teammates, clients or even conduct user tests. Finally, the workshop will teach you how to take your project and export the content to the development team, as well as create a design spec.
In this course, Chris Griffith introduces the PhoneGap ecosystem and the basics of PhoneGap Build. He shows how to set up an account for development and create, configure, and compile your first project with PhoneGap Build. Once you’ve mastered these fundamentals, Chris shows how to extend your app plugins, debug your app, and then prep it for release in the App Store, Google Play store, or Windows Store.
Apache Cordova is the open-source version of PhoneGap, the leading tool for cross-platform app development. It’s a write-once, run-anywhere solution specifically designed for mobile. But to ensure a smooth cross-platform workflow, it helps to know some setup and configuration basics. In this course, Chris Griffith introduces Apache Cordova and the PhoneGap ecosystem, including the two command-line interface (CLI) tools and the PhoneGap desktop app. He shows how to set up your local system and how to create, configure, and build your first project with the Cordova CLI. Once you’ve mastered the fundamentals, Chris shows how to extend your app with native and third-party plugins that enable features such as QR code detection and geolocation, and debug your app, preview it in an emulator or on an actual device, and then prep it for release in the Apple Store or on Google Play.
I am pleased to announce that I will be conducting a full day training on Ionic Framework at the upcoming HTML5DevConf Autumn 2015! This full day training will be on Thursday October 22nd.
AngularJS, Cordova and Ionic are a perfect blend of technologies for building hybrid applications that behave like a native app across multiple mobile platforms. In this course, you will learn how to build an Ionic application from scratch using the Ionic CLI and explore its various components. We will also examine how to architect the AngularJS foundation of services, controllers, and views. Finally, we will extend our application to leverage some mobile specific capabilities.
PhoneGap’s command-line interface is a great way to build mobile apps, whether you want to use it to initialize new projects or take apps all the way through testing. In this course Chris Griffith offers a thorough overview of building, emulating, and deploying Android and iOS apps with this powerful tool. He’ll show you how to configure your development environment, and create brand-new projects with the PhoneGap CLI as well as the Apache Cordova CLI (the framework PhoneGap is built on). Then he’ll demonstrate how to test your app, customize and extend the platform to suit your workflow, and compile your app with PhoneGap Developer or PhoneGap Build. Start watching and learn how to kick-start your apps from the command line now with the PhoneGap CLI.
It was a lot of fun recording this title. Hope you enjoy it!
I am very excited to announce that I am developing my first course for lynda.com! It is quite an honor to be to working with such a talented group of people. A big thank you to James Williamson, who helped craft my demo movie. My initial effort will be “Up and Running with PhoneGap Build”.
This going to be a fun and exciting challenge. One the first challenges will be creating the sample app to showcase the service.
