• AppBuilder Next Steps Lab 1 on Jul 10th 2014

    We are going to follow on the leanings of Telerik’s AppBuilder from last session by Sam and write a basic app. This will be conducted in lab fashion so plan to participate or just watch. For simplicity we will code in the browser so choice of Mac or PC will not be relevant for this Lab. Feel free to use the windows client if you prefer. If you are participating in the lab please sign up for the 30 day trial for AppBuilder at www.telerik.com

    Telerik Platform 101

    It’s 2014 and it’s insane not to support every mobile platform to reach broadest user base. Let’s keep this simple: Cross-platform Mobile development | One codebase | Platform| AppBuilder | HTML5/JS | Cordova | IDEs | Backend Services | Deploy/Manage. You can do it all!

    New topic for thursday!

    In April, Microsoft announced Windows Phone 8.1 and soon after made available as a developer preview. In this talk, we will take a lap around the updated platform and SDK and learn about Universal apps, Geo-fencing, Cortana, triggers, Bluetooth, start screen changes, and more. We will also explore differences between Windows Phone Silverlight apps and Windows Phone Runtime apps as well as Universal apps. There will also be a few handsets which you can use to sample Windows Phone 8.1 for yourself.
