Getting initial console messages you missed with remote debug by Raymond Camden | 21 May 2015 | PhoneGap Network This falls in the “I’m sure it is obvious and no one will find it useful” category, but typically those are the posts that end up being useful so here goes nothing. Imagine you are using remote debugging (and if you don’t know how, here are two articles – Part One and Part Two) and […] Visit Raymond's Blog
PhoneGap Day EU 2015 - Push N' Pull by Simon MacDonald | 19 May 2015 | PhoneGap Network Yesterday, I was happy to present at PhoneGap Day EU in Amsterdam. It's one of my favourite days of the year.

A simple Cordova task runner for Visual Studio Code by Raymond Camden | 17 May 2015 | PhoneGap Network I’ve been really liking Visual Studio Code lately, so much so that it is now my primary editor. It is still definitely a pre-1.0 release, but it performs really well and I just dig its coding style. I had to step away from Brackets a few weeks ago due to a bug (details) that impacts […] Visit Raymond's Blog
