Faster Native Application Development with Ionic2

Add to calendar

Let's be honest … developing for mobile can be taxing on both you and your company. Hiring Android, iOS, and other developers to write the same code for multiple platforms is expensive and can be a development nightmare. Greg Avola walks you through mobile cross-platform development using an open source framework called Ionic2. Ionic2 supports building highly interactive native and progressive web apps using HTML/CSS/JS for code sharing and a native experience. You can leverage your website engineering skillsets to develop native apps, share code among many platforms, release features faster—and keep your user-base happier. Worried about performance? Don't be! Greg will address the myths about “hybrid” app development, so you can get back to building great apps faster with no dip in performance. Leave with a fresh take on building apps using web technologies to maximize your time and performance.
