Mobile App Building and Augmented Reality: An Introduction
BeginnersPrerequisitesNew

Tue 17 Mar - Wed 18 Mar 2020

Description

This introduction to building mobile apps explores the basic elements and options for an app, from the simpler menu-driven and webpage rendering approaches, to some of the possibilities involved in orientation and location-sensitive data inputs and augmented reality techniques. The course will include a review of some existing apps which help demonstrate many of the options available for apps, and provide the opportunity to design a basic app incorporating some of those elements. There will also be an overview of important security considerations, and ways to share and distribute a more polished app, either independently or via existing app repositories and stores.
