Building Mobile Apps by Example
Have you ever thought about building a mobile application for your Drupal website? In this session we'll build two simple example mobile applications, and you'll walk away with the tools needed to build your own mobile application for a Drupal website.
Both apps will utilize a Drupal 7 website, and DrupalGap, which is an open source mobile application development kit for Drupal. With these tools, developers can create custom mobile applications (for iOS, Android, other) for their Drupal websites.
Example #1 - GeoTag a Photo
This app will allow us to take a photograph and save it onto a Drupal website. It will also record our current location to "GeoTag" the photo.
Example #2 - Get Nearby Locations
This app will allow us to retrieve and display nearby locations stored within the Drupal website. For this example our current location will be:
1201 South Figueroa Street
Los Angeles, CA 90015
Our nearby examples will include the following locations:
We'll also cover what Drupal 8 has in store for mobile application development.
