Adobe – Lehi, Utah
This year’s PhoneGap Day US event was held at the Adobe office in Lehi, Utah (just outside Salt Lake City) for the first time ever. The location offered beautiful scenery and provided attendees with a chance to ski or take in a film at the Sundance film festival. The event was truly awesome overall and I wanted to share some info and links to check out if you weren’t able to attend or want to review what you learned.
PhoneGap Day Workshops
The event started off with a day of sold out workshops. We had 3 tracks with a variety of workshops from members of the PhoneGap team, the community and sponsors. The day was packed with lots of material covered in a brief period of time. Below are some links to tutorials, slides and content (including from my own workshop).
