Build Cross-platform Native Apps with Appcelerator Studio and Alloy

by Jeff Batt

Appcelerator allows you to build an app once and publish it everywhere without having to learn new code languages or duplicate across multiple platforms. In this course, you'll explore Appcelerator, from navigating the UI to working a local database.

What you'll learn

Appcelerator Studio enables web developers to use their coding language knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to build native applications that work on iOS, Android, and Windows. In this course, you will learn from beginning to end on how to start working with Appcelerator Studio using the Alloy languages. First, you'll learn about the UI elements that make up an app and how to add functionality and logic to a real-world score keeper app. Next, you'll learn how to save your data and settings to a local SQLite database, and to Appcelerators ArrowDB (a remote database service). Finally, you'll learn how to tie into an existing Apple Watch app and how to deploy your app to the different app stores. By the end of this course, you will be able to create your own Appcelerator apps and be able to deploy those apps to the various app stores.
