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.

Hi everyone, my name is Jeff Batt and welcome to my course Building Cross-Platform Apps with Appcelerator Studio Alloy. I am the founder of LearningDojo.net

Appcelerator Studio enables web developers to build cross-platform apps for iOS and Android using web languages like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The cool thing about Appcelerator though is it doesn’t just show a web view inside an app but it takes your web code and converts it to native Swift code for iOS or native Java for Android giving the end use the exact experience they would get if the app was built in those native languages.

In this course, we are going to walk you through everything from A-Z with Appcelerator, from getting to know the UI to working a local database.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • UI elements that make up an app
  • Adding functionality and logic to a real world score keeper app
  • Saving your data and settings to a local SQLite database
  • Saving your data and settings to Appcelerators ArrowDB a remote database service
  • How to tie into an existing Apple Watch app
  • 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.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with web basics such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Appcelerator Alloy code with the Building Cross-Platform Apps with Appcelerator Studio Alloycourse, at Pluralsight.
