PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build in 5 Minutes

During the last couple of months, I have been on the road presenting our new HTML tools as part of the Create the Web tour with many other members of the team.

The tour was a lot of fun with a lot of great feedback from designers and developers. The main challenge of the event was to fit so much content into a short two-hour session. But it was a good challenge! It forced us to be laser focused, and clearly communicate the essence of each product in 5 to 10 minutes.

Since 5 minutes is also a good length for a video, I thought it would be a good idea to capture that succinct message in a series of screencasts. I posted the first one (Synchronized Browsing and Remote Inspection with Adobe Edge Inspect) last week. Here is the second one: “PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build in 5 minutes”.

For a better viewing experience, make sure you set the quality to HD (720p or 1080p) in the YouTube player, and go full screen.

    5 minutes… i’m trying to install this pile of shit named phonegap for two days now. An endless, painful path of command-line shit, download/install all kinds of stuff, changing environtmental vars and more…
    It seems that if you’re able to set phonegap up, you might as well code in native code.

  • I will right away take hold of your rss as I can not find
    your email subscription link or e-newsletter service.
    Do you’ve any? Please permit me know in order that I could subscribe.

  • Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think of
    if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its field.
    Awesome blog!
