I'm happy to announce that I'll be presenting the session, Developing Apps for iPhone/iPad/Android Using Drupal As A Base System at DrupalCon Chicago!

This session is a sequel to DrupalCon SFO's and DrupalCon CPH's "Developing Apps for iPhone/iPad/Android using Drupal as Base System" session. (Now more advanced and better!)

With the launch of the iPad, NexusOne, and now the Android Honeycomb OS for tablets - the iOS/Android application market can't be ignored. Both these technologies have great potential to use existing web based tools such as Drupal to, for example, manage/update your iOS/Android native application.

I have previously written about iPhone, iOS, Android and Drupal.

This session is about building native iPhone/iPad/iOS/Android applications using Open Source web-based technologies (Appcelerator) with Drupal as base system to manage content, users, Views, permissions, and more.

The session will cover:

  • An introduction to Titanium Framework to develop iPhone/Android apps using Titanium API, web technologies like HTML5 and jQuery, etc.
  • Introduction to Services API and web standards [json, xmlrpc]
  • How to manage your application's data (content, tables, Views, users, menus, taxonomy, etc.) using Drupal
  • We will build a live app... and introduce you to some code (Services API, YQL, jQuery and Titanium API)
  • Demo Photo gallery apps, Video uploading, Geo apps, user data apps and creating nodes on the go!
  • Demo of some apps we've built for Android and iPhone platforms

Drupal is the industry-leading open source content management platform used to power millions of websites. It’s also a robust community of Web developers, designers, business people, and everyday citizens around the world.

DrupalCon is an international event that brings together the people who use, develop, design, and support the Drupal platform. DrupalCon Chicago will be held March 7-10, 2011, and will feature dozens of curated sessions and panels from some of the most influential people and brightest minds within the Drupal community and beyond, as well as countless opportunities for networking, sprints, informal conversations, and more.
