Hacking Motto!

In relation to the 20th July cross platform mobile development presentations we are having a hackathon where the participants have the chance to develop the same application with different techniques. The attendees form a team where they create a typical simple "business" App by either using PhoneGap, Titanium Appclerator or Native Java for the development.

The Goal

  • Create an App for the Zurich GTUG.
  • The user of the App should be able see upcoming events
  • Register to the next GTUG event
  • Notification upon new events
  • View upcoming Event topics
  • Send message to the groups
  • ...

The Steps

The GTUG Team sets up for the attendees a repository containing three "Hello World" applications (PhoneGap, Appcelerator and Native Java). The attendees use development tools such as (Java, JS, HTML5) and Google APIs e.g. (Google Sites, Google Docs and more) to reach their goals.

The Result

Each team presents their application and explain the features and show code examples to other teams. The attendees decide which is the best App to be released as the official Zurich GTUG App.
