The First-Ever Event for NativeScript Developers

NativeScript Developer Day is the first-ever dedicated event for NativeScript developers. Hosted in Boston, NativeScript Developer Day is a full-day event for learning about NativeScript, Angular, and mobile from the best and brightest in the NativeScript community. Whether you’re a beginner curious about NativeScript or a seasoned mobile developer, NativeScript Developer Day has speakers and sessions for you.

What is NativeScript?

NativeScript is an open source framework for building truly native mobile apps with JavaScript. You can leverage web skills—like JavaScript/TypeScript, Angular, and CSS—and build apps with native UI and performance on iOS and Android.

Looking for a bit more background on what NativeScript is and what you can do with it? Come to our pre-event workshop to learn NativeScript & Angular 2 from the ground up.

What you’ll learn

NativeScript Developer Day features sessions on NativeScript, Angular, and mobile. See the full schedule for details. The event is perfect for existing NativeScript developers that are looking to optimize their skills and meet others in the NativeScript community, as well as web developers that are trying to get into the mobile space—especially developers that already have a bit of Angular experience.
