Building Simple Smartphone Apps without coding

The Consumer Data Research Centre & Leeds Institute for Data Analytics are pleased to present the following training short course in building apps for smartphones. In this session we will have an introductory look at some of the alternative routes that exist to create mobile content without pre-existing coding skills. Participants will be able to experiment with ways to create the mobile functionality that they need, while reflecting on the pros and cons of the different approaches. Software such as MIT AppInventor, amongst others, allow us to create apps with native functionality, and tools such as PhoneGap allow us to repurpose web content as standalone apps. No prior experience in digital creation is necessary.
