We all know how important it is to have a native mobile app for your business these days. In the past, shipping an app on multiple mobile platforms either required separate codebases, kludgy write-once-run-anywhere tools or "slow" wrappers around embedded web browsers. Well, times have changed! With modern mobile OSes, improved device performance and advances in web technologies (WebGL and CSS3 animations, anyone?), developing native apps in HTML5 that can fully interface with device hardware AND provide native performance are extremely easy to create. Together we'll build a simple cross-platform mobile app in under an hour with Visual Studio using the Visual Studio Tools For Apache Cordova and the Ionic Framework.
