Compared to native apps, web apps can be bland. Many web apps are designed with a traditional desktop feature set in mind, stripping out features for the mobile version. But nowadays, we have access to some exciting features that we've never had before. Particularly on mobile. Let's explore what we can do with new HTML features like the accelerometer, geolocation and camera APIs, as well as speed enhancements to make our responsive web apps look native. If you work on the web and fancy the feel of a snappy native app, this workshop is for you.
We'll dive into the following to give you a broader understanding of what your app is capable of:
- New APIs
- Geolocation
- Battery
- Camera
- Accelerometer
- Animation
- Touch events
- Speed
- AppCache
- JS Performance
- Browser quirks
- Basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and an internediate understanding of Javascript.
What to Bring:
- Laptop with Ruby and NodeJS installed.
