Rapid native mobile app development with Drupal and Titanium / PhoneGap

Development and Code
Experience Level: 

Tools like Titanium and PhoneGap allow for rapid development of cross-platform, native mobile applications using standard web technologies such HTML and Javascript. By using Drupal as a backend for these applications, you can manage content, users, and business logic using techniques you already know, while creating apps that have full native device functionality and the ability to be listed and sold in the Apple App Store or Google Play.

In this session, we'll cover:

  • What you'll need to get your first Drupal powered native app up and running.
  • Best practices for exposing core Drupal functionality to native apps.
  • Existing Drupal modules, distributions, and resources that can rapidly speed up development.
  • Differences between common mobile development frameworks, and the pros and cons of each.
  • Common tips and pitfalls when working with mobile devices.
