Our Next Meeting:

Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova

4/29/2015 6:00:00 PM

Location: Assurity Life Insurance Headquarters

Visual Studio makes it easy to build cross platform mobile apps using the skillset you may already have in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. One way to build these cross-platform mobile apps is to use Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova.  Apache Cordova is an open source project that enables you to create mobile apps for each major app store, as well as access native device APIs - camera, geolocation, barcode scanner, et al. Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova is Microsoft’s implementation of the Apache Cordova platform inside of Visual Studio 2013 (and upcoming Visual Studio 2015).

In April’s meeting, we will be discussing what Cordova is, how it compares with other mobile development products, what dependencies are needed, how to get started, and what other aspects to consider.  If you’ve never seen Apache Cordova (or Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova) then you’ll be in for a real treat.  If you have used Cordova, hopefully you’ll find a few new nuggets of information that you can use.

Speaker: Steve Kennedy

I’m primarily a .NET developer with better skills in eating, drinking, getting distracted, and stalking strangers on Facebook. I’m currently working towards an MBA with an emphasis in fantasy football. I’m raising a 19 year old daughter who I taught to be .NET developer – she’s never forgiven me. I’m 50/50 on giving presentations without cursing profusely - my apologies in advance.

I started writing software in 1996 using Turbo Pascal and Delphi. I’m passionate about good software design practices, and have an affinity for simplicity in architecture.  Now, I enjoy keeping up with the latest and greatest Microsoft technologies.  I believe in giving back to my community, and continuous learning. I enjoy spending time with my family - it’s my number one priority. Lately, I’ve been previewing Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2015.
