HTML5 Hybrid Mobile App Developers' Meetup Announced for Las Vegas, NV - Friday, July 12, 6PM

Las Vegas, NV, Jul 05, 2013 ( via COMTEX) -- Michael Smith, AppGyver's community coordinator said that "Our San Francisco MeetUp received more than 40 confirmations in just a few days. We had already scheduled a Vegas visit, so we decided to extend an extra day and schedule the casual MeetUp to serve the needs of our Nevada developers." Marko Lehtimaki, the founder and CEO of AppGyver, will be in attendance; he will be covering the basics of AppGyver Steroids, the new HTML5 development platform that develops PhoneGap (a.k.a. Cordova) based apps much faster. Steroids allows developers to build hybrid apps, with native app functionality and feel, and publish them to both Android and Apple app stores faster than ever before.

Smith said another new service will be highlighted at the meetup: AppGyver Prototyper, which allows users to build and distribute working prototypes in just minutes.

Smith said that "...each time Marko demonstrates some of our existing and upcoming features, it creates quite a stir with PhoneGap users who did not realize how far they can take their hybrid apps." At the meetup, Marko will also demo JavaScript framework and Steroids.js, which extends hybrid apps with features such as native UI APIs, faster PhoneGap APIs and more.

Smith said, "We will also build a simple app, get it running on device and distribute it to participants of the meetup wirelessly. Real hands-on stuff." Local designers and developers can enroll in the free event through the page established for the event {here}.

ABOUT APPGYVER: AppGyver's mission is to provide a comprehensive toolset, for both novice and seasoned mobile developers, to quickly build, test, preview and deploy fully functioning HTML5 mobile apps that are indistinguishable from their native equivalents. For more information, visit
