Multiplatform Mobile App Development with Web Technologies: Ionic and Cordova (Coursera)

This course focuses on developing multiplatform mobile applications using the Web technologies (HTML5, CSS and Javascript). In particular we make use of the Cordova hybrid application framework to develop and target multiple mobile platforms with a single codebase.

We make use of the Ionic framework (Ionic Ver 3.x), one of the most popular mobile application frameworks, that is built with mobile-optimized HTML5 and CSS based components and Angular. You will learn about UI development with Ionic and then using Cordova’s modules to access the native mobile platform’s capabilities from Javascript. You should have already completed the Bootstrap 4 and the Angular courses in this specialization before proceeding with this course.

At the end of this course you will be able to (a) Build mobile applications targeting multiple platforms with a single codebase, (b) Leverage your HTML5, CSS, Javascript and Angular skills, and (c) Use various features of the Ionic framework to build hybrid mobile applications.

Who is this class for: This course is aimed at students with sufficient knowledge of Web technologies like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. A good working knowledge of JavaScript, especially ES 5 and the Angular framework is strongly recommended.

Course 3 of 5 in the Full Stack Web and Multiplatform Mobile App Development Specialization.
