Appcelerator: Building Native Mobile Apps with Titanium On-Site Training
Appcelerator: Building Native Mobile Apps with Titanium
You will master key Titanium APIs and learn the end-to-end process of developing a Titanium mobile application. At the conclusion of this class, you will take an online exam to become a Titanium Certified Application Developer.
Note: You must provide your own equipment for this class. A computing system with functional Titanium Studio with Android SDK and/or iOS SDK supported versions installed is required.
What You'll Learn
Who Should Attend
Application developers, system integrators, programmers, designers
1. Zero to App Recap and Orientation
Explore the basics of the Titanium Mobile platform, including Titanium architecture, developer resources, and basic development workflow.
2. You're a Native Application Developer Now
Take a 10,000-foot view of the native SDKs for iOS and Android, learning the basic concepts, vocabulary, and tools associated with each and getting a peek at how Titanium Developer works with each of the tools. Create and deploy "Hello World" applications for each platform, getting an introduction to native development in Java or Objective-C.
3. Cross-Platform Mobile Development in Titanium
4. User Interface Fundamentals
Learn basic principles of user interface development in Titanium. Explore app structures (tabs vs. windows), the view hierarchy, positioning techniques, component styling, and event handling (custom and built-in). Learn how to build custom component constructors to form the "View" and "Controller" tier of your client application. Assemble the view components necessary to power the TiBountyHunter application.
5. Working with Local Data
6. Working with Media and the Filesystem
Learn how to use rich media (audio, video, still images) in your applications, how to store and retrieve file objects from the filesystem, and the proper use of local storage. Allow the users of TiBountyHunter to snap photos of a "fugitive", assign that photo to a record in the database, and recall that photo from the filesystem for display in the application.
7. Working with Remote Data
It's rare that a mobile application is developed which does not in some way use data fetched over a network. Titanium provides an XMLHTTPRequest style interface to an HTTPClient object, which should look familiar to most Ajax-savvy web developers. Learn how to fetch data over HTTP from a remote server, work with that data, and reconcile the data with local copies of the same. Synch data from a local version of TiBountyHunter with a remote cache of a hunter's current and past fugitives.
8. Using Location Services
Learn how to use location APIs in Titanium applications. Explore the native map kits for each platform and how to interact with rich native mapping views in an application. Enhance TiBountyHunter to capture data from the device's GPS to track location data about a fugitive, and then plot that information on a map.
9. Integrating Contacts and Social APIs
Learn to use the social network of the user to communicate information. In this case, to brag about the capture of a fugitive once he or she has been brought to justice. Titanium exposes address book APIs for this purpose, and the HTTPClient and native libraries can be exploited to add support for Facebook, Twitter, and YQL integration.
10. Integrating Web Content
11. Deployment and Distribution
Learn how to install your apps on Android and iOS devices for testing. Learn how to package apps for distribution, including obtaining the appropriate certificates and credentials, and how to sign your code. Learn how to publish apps to the Android Market and Apple App Store.
12. Titanium Certified App Developer Exam
Ask final questions before you make your first of three attempts at passing the certification exam.
