Ionic training course (code: Ionic)


Our Ionic training course shows you how the latest version of Ionic is used to develop apps for the Apple App and Google Play mobile app stores. Thorough grounding in best practices, performance and coding for maintainability are covered. As much hands-on coding as possible means delegates will be very well equipped to develop serious scalable mobile app projects.

Ionic provides tools and services for developing hybrid mobile apps using Web technologies like CSS, HTML5, and Sass. Apps can be built with these Web technologies and then distributed through native app stores to be installed on devices by leveraging Cordova.


A good understanding of Angular is essential to get the most out of this course. No prior iOS or Android programming experience is necessary, though an understanding of the mobile ecosystem really helps. Delegates should sign up for free developer accounts with either platform before attending the course.


weather.com is built with Angular - it gives you one of the most precise weather forecasting reports and is highly recommended. It gives you weather updates from all over the world which keeps on updating at regular intervals.
