This course will NOT be updated to Ionic v2 once it's released, v1 and v2 are too different, another course will be created instead.
Gartner predict that by 2016 50% of all mobile applications will be hybrid apps built using technology like Ionic.
This course is for existing web developers, your level of HTML, CSS and JS doesn't matter but you must have some since we won't be covering those topics on this course.
You DO NOT need to know AngularJS.
We will cover the essential AngularJS topics needed to build Ionic applications in the AngularJS Review section (If you already know AngularJS feel free to skip it)
Through a series of 7 real-world examples you will learn the skills needed to build fully functional, cross platform iOS and Android mobile applications in Ionic.
The course will cover:
The course will also cover the feature of the Ionic Platform such as
Imagine if you were the CTO of a small tech company, who would you rather hire?
A versatile web/mobile superstack developer.
A unicorn native app developer, who can only work on iOS or Android.
Do I even need to say it?
With Ionic the dream of using web technology to build mobile apps is finally here. It isn't a second-class option, it's the future of mobile app development.

What we are going to build and what you will learn whilst building it.
Over 15 years experience working for clients such as the European Space Agency and Google, regular conference speaker and published author.
Wrote my first program in 1988, my first website in 1996, earned a 1st Class Degree in Computer Science in 2000 and now 15 years later I own a digital agency in London called Bubblegum specialising in building complex web & mobile applications in AngularJS/Node/Django and IonicFramework.
As well as building applications for awesome clients word-wide, through Udemy i'm now following my dream of teaching other passionate developers like myself what I know through my company CodeCraft.
# What do I believe?
- I believe as a developer at it's heart, your job is to make the lives of other people more productive, that's what computing is all about.
- So if you yourself are not 100% focussed on making your own development as productive as possible then it doesn't bode well for your clients.
# What are my values?
- I'm 100% focused on practical development skills.
- I don't waste peoples time.
- I value my time and I value yours.
- I'm driven to be the most productive developer I can possibly be. I don't get caught up in philosophical debates.
- I value shipping “correct" functionality as fast as possible for myself and my clients.
If those are your values as well them you will love my courses.
If you want to sip your skinny decaf soya latte whilst discussing the pros and cons of different naming conventions for 3 hours then look somewhere else, if you want to learn how to ship functionality as fast as possible for yourself and your clients, these courses are for you.
