Quick and Dirty – Prototyping with PhoneGap

Tim Raphael, University of Western Australia

PhoneGap, formerly Apache Cordova, is a framework that combines the agility of web languages such as Javascript and CSS with the power of native mobile device frameworks to enable developers to quickly bring together the elements of an app across many platforms.

In this talk, I will show you how you can leverage jQuery Mobile and CSS to quickly bring together the interface of a web-app and then enhance it with powerful features from native platform frameworks. PhoneGap can be used not only on iOS but can be built and deployed to Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone and even Firefox OS!
