Mobile Application Development


Units: 12

Description: Smartphones are becoming ubiquitous. Applications running on these phones have become the mainstay for users. In fact studies show that more people access the web via mobile devices than from personal computers. As the number of devices expands dramatically, users are becoming accustomed to having both web and computing access via small, mobile devices and phones. This has resulted in a significant increase in demand for developers with experience using multiple platforms such as iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. At the same time, the growth in popularity of cloud computing has increased the ability for these devices to perform functions that previously required computation power unavailable on mobile devices. Mobile applications are considered one of the most important enterprise application decisions for businesses today. Marketing, IT and business managers are looking for expertise in leveraging mobile to grow sales and increase their customer base. In this project-based course you discover how to use Apache Cordova, an open source mobile development framework, to create platform-neutral mobile applications. Apps can be created using standards based web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript which can then be deployed on iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone and other platforms. Adobe Cordova can speed up development and allow you to deploy your app more quickly. NOTE: This course is only available to students attending our Adelaide campus.
