Hybrid Apps with Ionic Framework

Full-day workshop dedicated to developers interested in building mobile applications using the Ionic Framework. If you are a web or frontend developer, you will get a chance to learn how to use your JavaScript/HTML/CSS skills to develop applications for mobile devices.

If you have already been creating native mobile apps, then you will be able to learn modern web technologies, based on JavaScript and see how to apply them in mobile applications.

During the DevMeeting we will focus on programming a complete hybrid mobile application for rating pictures: both downloaded from a remote website and those taken in the application using the phone camera.

Why Ionic?

Ionic framework is becoming popular all around the world. It is one of the most promising modern frameworks for building hybrid mobile applications. With Ionic SDK, we can create a mobile application for Android and iOS using the same codebase and components, as well as share business logic of the application. Ionic SDK also provides tools and services that make it much easier to create mobile applications.

For whom?

This DevMeeting is dedicated primarily to web developers who have experience in implementing Single Page Applications. You should already know JavaScript and we suggest that before the workshop you get familiar with the basics of AngularJS - as Ionic is in a large extent based on this framework.

See you at the DevMeeting!

What is DevMeeting?

DevMeeting is a mix of hackathon and programming workshop. Throughout the day, participants implement a sample application – on their own and in teams. Experienced mentors supervise the learning process, support the participants with their help, provoke discussions and share their practical know-how, as well as best practices.

DevMeeting is not a lecture or a classic training. We focus on practical skills, coding and exchanging knowledge and experience. It is also a great opportunity to meet other developers and expand your professional network.
