Hybrid App Dev

The past two months we have been focused on using the Ionic Framework, which is a free and open source framework. Ionic offers a library of mobile-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components, gestures, and tools for building highly interactive apps. Built with Sass and optimized for AngularJS.

Ionic & Angular

A big part of being comfortable with Ionic is being familiar with AngularJS and to help support this I used Code School and the documentation supplied by both Ionic and Angular. Also, the community for developing hybrid mobile applications has been rapidly growing month by month.

Ergo Self Assessment

We were able to attempt to build two different apps as part of this process and the learning is ongoing. As our coding skills evolve, so will these projects. The past two weeks involved many breakthroughs and "ah-ha" moments as we were breaking code.

The self-assessment application that started as my second project will be available on my website next month. I would love to get some honest feedback from folks that use it. Below are what the first two screens will look like.
