Zero to App Store: A Hybrid App’s Tale

Zero to App Store: A Hybrid App’s Tale

A lot goes into making a mobile app: from visual and interaction design to prototyping, then coding and testing, and finally the nerve-wracking submission process: it can seem overwhelming for an experienced team, much less a single developer. In this session, you'll get to cheer me on as I enthuse about my wild successes building a hybrid app, and have a good laugh at my expense while I discuss my abysmal failures. We'll also touch on some tooling and workflows that contribute to the longest journey of hybrid app development.
