About the Course:

Learn how to build state-of-the-art web and mobile apps that will garner 5-star ratings and reputation using industry standard technologies such as HTML5, jQuery, PhoneGap and an API Backend. In this class we will review the important mobile features of HTML5 & JavaScipt. You will learn how to use a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add app features with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to deploy your app to devices natively using PhoneGap.
It would be helpful if you had a basic understanding of HTML & CSS and some programming experience (ideally in JavaScript and jQuery, but not necessarily) prior to taking this course but it is not necessary. We recommend that you go through the following Codecademy lessons to brush up before starting this course: classes 1–3 of the Web course, classes 1–6 of the JavaScript course and classes 1–5 of the jQuery course.
