  • Course PhoneGap Programming : Content

    In the course PhoneGap Programming the participants learn to create cross-platform mobile applications using the open-source framework PhoneGap.

    Cross Platform Apps

    The course PhoneGap programming starts by explaining how PhoneGap allows you to build mobile apps while adding re-use to your code and other assets using well known web technologies like HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Attention is paid to setting up the development environment to compile for multiple platforms and to run and debug the HTML and JavaScript.

    PhoneGap Build

    Also covered is how PhoneGap Build can be used to create app-store-ready applications for iOS and Android. Deployment and installation of the application on devices like a smart phone or tablet is treated as well.

    JavaScript Optimization

    And the optimization of JavaScript for mobile devices, the use of CSS transitions, animations and transformations to create native looking interfaces is on the course schedule. And the use of mobile JS libraries, such as XUI and Dashcode to build mobile applications faster is covered.

    Native API's

    Finally it is discussed how to access native APIs, including location, camera, accelerometer, contacts and more via JavaScript.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
