PhoneGap 2.x Mobile Application Development Hotshot - Book Review

As I announced early on my post On my book shelve - PhoneGap 2.x Mobile Application Development Hotshot, I was reading this book...and now...I'm ready to write a review about it.

First thing first...I read it...but didn't actually spend too much time doing all the projects, so I'm for sure will read it again -:D this book good or bad? I will's really good!

For me...the best way to learn a new programming language or by actually build stuff with it...and this book is full of practical projects that will dive you deep in the PhoneGap development.

The book include projects that deal with Twitter, Camera, Storage and even includes a small game! How awesome is that?! Really awesome -:)

The projects are easy to follow, but of course...they are not simple...they are complex and that adds more flavor to really need to be focused on what you're doing to get the full grasp of it...but doing it yourself, you will learn it more quickly and will not forget it anytime soon...

I want to show you a couple of images of two of the projects included in the you can have an idea of what you're going to build...

BTW...even when I'm posting only Android based images...the book focuses on both IOS and Android.

If you have never used PhoneGap before...or you're a newbie with little experience like me...then this book really is for you...happy coding!

On my book shelve - PhoneGap 2.x Mobile Application Development Hotshot

I'm always reading new programming books, so I guess it's good to alert people that I'm reading something and that I'm planning to write a review so they can know if the book its good or not...

This new section is going to be called "On my book shelve" and I want to start with the book called:

PhoneGap 2.x Mobile Application Development Hotshot

I have tried PhoneGap once, when I wrote about its integration with SAP HANA -:)

This books really looks good as it covers a lot of Projects that in my humble opinion...its the best way to learn actually coding -;)

I will read the book and let you know my thoughts -:)

A new beginning...

After 3 years living in Montreal, Canada...with 1 years and 8 months with Beyond Technologies and 1 year and 3 months with SAP Labs Canada...I'm making my bags again...

This time, I'm moving along with my family to California...where I will work for SAP Labs in Palo Alto.

Why are we moving? Simply team Developer Experience is divided between Palo Alto and Waldorf...being me and my team mate Vitaliy Rudnyskiy and I the only ones on our countries (Him in Poland and me in Canada)...that's why it makes perfect sense to go where the team is -;) (I wasn't of course willing to learn German).

I'm flying this Saturday, so my last days in Montreal are already here...while I worked from home most of the time, the times I visit the office were amazingly good...I made some really good friends like Pakdi, Jon, Elsa, Krista, Pierre and Nolwen. I will keep in touch with them of course -:)

As I'm moving to the Palo Alto office...both my title Development Expert and my duties will remain the duties are going to increase -:P But who cares...I love my job so much that all new duties are welcome -;)

One of the really good things about this move is that I will be able to attend all the cool meeting, hackatons and gatherings that happen in the I'm really looking for that...

Of course...after all the craziness of the relocation is over...I will continue blogging like crazy, trying to give you the best coding experiences -:)
