Java-less Android Development. Apache Cordova Project (formerly PhoneGap)

Category: Android

So-called hybrid mobile applications are created using web technologies (HTML, CSS and JavaScript) and wrapped in a special container which makes them indistinguishable, for a typical user, from native applications. Many applications and games known from Google Play are hybrid applications.

Participants in this course will learn how to use their knowledge of web technologies to create hybrid applications which use all the hardware (compass, accelerometer, video camera and more) and software (notifications, filesystem access, contact lists etc.) capabilities available on Android devices. In order to achieve these goals, Apache Cordova project will be used.

Apache Cordova (previously known as PhoneGap and later Callback) is a framework that allows developing applications for various mobile environments. After this course, the participants will easily use it to create not only Android applications, but also applications for iPhones, Blackberries, Nokia and Windows 7 devices.
