Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Aug 26 will be “Use Your Web Skills to Create Native Mobile Apps”, with Fred Anderson.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Open source application development platforms have changed the development game. By utilizing web technologies like Javascript, HTML, and CSS, you can build applications for iPhone, Android and Blackberry all from a single code base. And best of all – you can utilize the native capabilities of the phone, so you don’t sacrifice anything in the user experience.

Appcelerator’s Titanium platform translates developers’ hard won web skills into native mobile applications that perform and look just like they were written in Objective-C [iPhone] or Java [Android]¦ but using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS skills. With over 300 APIs, a thriving developer community, and the support you need, developers can build native mobile applications that are more social, local, media rich, interactive, and extensible.
