Are you looking for projects to hone your development skills?

Are you seeking to learn how to put all the pieces together, so you can build an application that actually does something? 

Are you looking to learn how to use the Google Places API, or PhoneGap?  

This project course is for you!  This course includes a full app-- all the source code and then a comprehensive video which describes how the application is put together. The instructor reviews every line of code so you fully understand how the app is produced.  You'll even get an assignment to allow you to modify the app and make it your own.

The App
The Restaurant Row application included in this Javascript Project Course first uses geolocation to determine the users location. The app then uses that location to query the Google Places API to get information about local restaurants.  The Google Places API returns that information in the JSON format.  The App then parses the JSON to extract each data point and then displays the restaurant information in a data view.

The Technologys
As is the case with most modern day applications there isn't one language or one technology used.  In this Javscript Project you'll get exposed to not only Javascript but also:

  • jQuery
  • JSON
  • The Google Places API
  • Geolocation
  • PhoneGap

You'll also learn how to use the PhoneGap toolkit to test your app on your mobile device.

Don't just learn how to code for mobile-- Learn how to build apps with the Project series from LearnToProgram.

Lots of good data about using phonegap and cors. Nice jquery examples. Mark explains things very well. Like how he uses the console.out to display the objects so you can see exactly what is coming back and how you can use further objects in your code. Good pace, nice guy.
