Mobile Computing

Why Mobile Computing ?

The exponential growth of smart phone usage has created a sudden demand in mobile application development skills in the market. Today, there is handful of platforms (smart phones and tablets) that runs these smart devices. This platform domain is led by Apple iOS, Google Android, Microsoft Windows Phone platforms - with Apple and Android being the front runners. Mobile computing with IBM collect, organize and analyse your data, transform your data into tangible business value with the latest, most flexible and open technology provided by IBM. It helps in fast visual modeling capabilities without coding, advanced data preparation capabilities, and automatically handle common data quality issues.

In this course, you learn about the capabilities of IBM Worklight and how to use them to develop mobile applications by using the IBM Worklight hybrid coding approach. The course begins with overviews of mobile development, IBM Worklight and Worklight Studio, application programming interfaces (APIs) and tools that provide for the development, back-end integration, security, and management of cross-platform mobile applications. This course covers topics that include IBM Worklight client-side APIs; user interface (UI) frameworks such as jQuery, Dojo, or Sencha Touch; Apache Cordova, integration, authentication techniques, push notification, and deploying and managing applications. The hands-on lab exercises throughout the course reinforce lecture content by giving you direct experience in working with IBM Worklight and mobile application development. The lab environment for this course uses the Google Android platform.

On successful completion of the Course, the students would be able to:

  1. Highlight key capabilities of Mobile Application Development
