Having a hard time finding someone to develop that mobile app? Look in the mirror

It’s a common issue. You’ve got an amazing idea for a mobile app. And you’re convinced that there’s a market for it. But you’ve had absolutely no luck finding a developer who can help you build it. Well, get ready to be happy. Because I just found that developer for you. It’s you.

That’s right. If you’ve got even a limited knowledge of HTML and CSS and a willingness to learn to code a bit, you could learn how to develop a mobile. In one day. And it’s absolutely free.

This class will teach you everything you need to build a mobile app for iOS or Android – as well as Windows Phone, Blackberry or a mobile browser. In addition to reviewing important mobile features of HTML5 and Javascript, you will also learn how to use a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add app features with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to deploy your app to devices natively using PhoneGap.

By the end of the workshop, we will have built a fully-featured app, ready for release on the app store, without having written a single line of server-side code!

I know right? Sounds too good to be true. But it’s for real.

The event brought to you by Apigee and taught by Greg Rewis promises to get you going on HTML5-based apps. Which will have you prototyping your own apps—and getting that great idea running on mobile handsets—in no time flat.

There will be two sessions, Wednesday, November 13 and Thursday, November 14. Again, the event is totally free. And lunch is provided.
