Video: Intro To PhoneGap from MobileDev@TU

Thanks to everyone who came out the the MobileDev@TU meetup last night at Towson University.   I’ve posted the video online for those that want to review it, or weren’t able to attend.  You can check it out below.  Unfortuantely I lost the last 15 minutes of video because I wasn’t patient enough to let the camera finish what it was doing, and I just forced everything to power off, resulting in file corruption.  Patience would have prevailed. I’m going to record another video discussing emulator and on-device debugging strategies for PhoneGap apps, which I’ll post here on the blog later.

I’m still learning the camera, and I need to tweak a few audio setting for next time (sorry about the clipping)!

    Thank you for the vidoe which helped me understand a few things which I found a little confusing on the phonegap website.

    There is one question I still have though. How does the pricing work for phonegap build which I can’t find anything about in the terms – do I pay the monthly fee as long as I use the service to develop preivate apps or do I pay as long as the apps are up for sale? For example, I create three apps (not platforms, but distinct apps) within a couple of months and put them on the app store where I keep them infefinitely, but don’t create any further apps. Do I just pay for two months or until I pull the apps from the app store?

      You only pay while you are using the service. If you cancel your PhoneGap Build subscription, the compiled apps will continue to work.

    Hey Andrew,

    nice talk! We are currently evaluation some possibilities for app development and I want to give our decision-makers an introduction to PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build.

    Would you mind sharing your slides of your talk?

    Thanks Louis
