Why a remote conference?

Learning is an important part of improving your code. One of the most rewarding ways to do that is by attending conferences. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult to make it to a conference due to travel costs, the price of the conference ticket, or your ability to take time off.

So, clear your calendar, grab some popcorn and twizzlers, and join us for some great content around building web and mobile apps. Or, grab a Users' Group ticket, get a company to provide a projector and pizza, and learn more realtime web development with your friends..

What is Mobile Edition?

Building apps for the mobile platforms like iOS and Android can be daunting. Learn how to use your javascript skills to easily and quickly build cross-platform apps.

From Cordova to React Native with Meteor

James Baxley

Why we are switching to react native at NewSpring, how the migration off Cordova is going, and what is the ultimate benefit for our users. The dream of building with javascript and running everywhere with Meteor still exists, and we think react native is the best way to get native level performance along with an excellent developer experience.

Automating deployment and testing across web and native apps

NativeScript renders truly native UIs—giving your users the best performance and UX their devices can offer. Come learn how to build native apps with Angular 2.

Your First Cross-Platform Game with Phaser

Pablo Farías Navarro

In this hands-on e-workshop you'll learn the basics of game development with Phaser, an amazing JavaScript library to create cross-platform 2D games with open web technologies. Through out the training, we'll create a simple Mario-style game by covering concepts such as sprites, animations, screen scaling, game states and loading game data from JSON files. Also, we'll look into the Intel XDK tool and the process to debug and distribute Phaser games in native mobile platforms.
