Speaking about Mobile Apps at Drupal Camp Austin

On November 19, I’ll be presenting a session at Drupal Camp Austin called Building Mobile Apps with Drupal on how to create mobile apps with Drupal as a back end.

I gave a talk on this topic at Dallas Drupal Days in July, and focused on native app development for Android and iOS , with just a little about PhoneGap for building a hybrid web/native app. Turns out everyone seems to be interested in PhoneGap/HTML5/CSS/JS apps for Drupal, and not so much building native apps. So for this presentation, I’m going to be talking much more about PhoneGap and how to use Drupal with it.

The number one use case everyone seems to have is that they have a Drupal site, and they want their users to be able to take a picture on their phone and upload it. This actually turns out to be pretty straight forward with PhoneGap, a little less so on the Drupal side.

I’m working on the presentation now - it’s not going to be the same as the Dallas one for those of you who have seen it on SlideShare (or in person :) )
