Developing Apps for iPhone/iPad/Android using drupal as Base System

Day:  Thursday, 26. august 2010
Time:  16:00-17:00
45 minutes (+15 minutes Q&A)



A sequel to drupalcon SFO's . We will be discussing/showing more advanced stuff in this session.

With launch of iPad and NexusOne - iPhone/Android application market can't be ignored. Both these technologies has great potential to use our existing web based tools such as drupal. You can totally use drupal to manage/update your iPhone/Android native application.

Some iPhone/drupal stuff I wrote in past at:

This session is about building native iPhone/iPad/Android applications using opensource web based technologies ( with drupal as base system to manage: content, users, views, permissions etc.
What will be covered

  • An introduction to Titanium Framework to develop iPhone/Android apps using Titanium API, web technologies like HTML5 and jQuery etc
  • Introduction to ServicesAPI and web standards [json,xmlrpc]
  • How to manage your application's data (content, tables, views, users, menus, taxonomy etc) using drupal.
  • We will build a live app ... introduce you to some code here (ServicesAPI, YQL, jQuery and Titanium API)
  • Demo of some apps we build for Android and iPhone platforms
  • Questions!

Quick demo of what we are going to discuss:
