Cordova Training Overview

Apache Cordova is an open-source development framework for creating cross-platform mobile applications. It allows web developers to use standard web technologies - HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript - for creating mobile apps for a variety of mobile platforms including Android, iOS, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile.

Accelebrate's Cordova training teaches attendees how to create, test, and deploy mobile apps with Apache Cordova using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript in a platform-independent way.
