Open PhoneGap/Cordova Session next week by Raymond Camden | 16 Apr 2014 | PhoneGap Network It has been a while, but next week (Wednesday, April 23rd) at 12PM CST, Holly Schinsky and myself will be hosting an open Q and A session for PhoneGap and Cordova. We've run these before and they are pretty successful. There will not be any presentation, but we will take your questions and try to answer them as well as we can. These sessions tend to bring up great discussions and are a good chance to see what other people are struggling with as well. We won't make a recording, but we will... Visit Raymond's Blog

The original presentation was 30 minutes and I anticipate it taking about the same. I'm not sure what Google Hangouts will do if I go past the end of a meeting so I wanted to ensure we...
