Intro to PhoneGap for RPG Programmers - Aaron Bartell

Writing native applications for the various mobile operating systems can be quite the task because you have to learn the various languages (i.e. Java, Objective-C) and deal with the idiosyncrasies of each platform. But what if that wasn't the case? What if you could develop in a single language (i.e. Javascript) and do your layout with HTML5+CSS3 and then deploy to Android/iOS/WebOS/Blackberry without changing a line of application code? With PhoneGap that becomes a reality.

Attend this session to learn how to develop your first PhoneGap application that communicates in real-time with an RPG program on the IBM i. The session will focus on the Android development environment because it is much easier to deploy with Android than with Apple. The SenchaTouch framework will be used for the graphical layout and communication portions of the client-side app. Everything discussed in this session is free and open source!!

It would be helpful to have an understanding of HTML/Javascript for this session.
