Celebrate PhoneGap Day US 2013

We’re excited to announce our 3rd Annual PhoneGap Day! On Friday July 19th, we’re celebrating PhoneGap Day at The LeftBank Annex in Portland, Oregon.

What’s it all about? PhoneGap Day is one part conference and one part celebration where you’ll meet and mingle with like-minded people interested in PhoneGap and mobile app development. You’ll help us celebrate the Apache Cordova community’s achievements and recognize their hard work on each monthly release.

We’ll have tons of speakers covering the latest on PhoneGap and PhoneGap Build, tools, apps, and more. You’ll get to meet the PhoneGap team and connect with other PhoneGap developers from Google, Mozilla, Microsoft, and more.

And of course, what’s a PhoneGap event without some beer? We’ll be serving a catered breakfast, lunch and snacks with plenty of beer to go around. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeve to make this event really special, including some limited edition PhoneGap swag that’s being created especially for this event.


You asked for it and you got it! We’ve got pre-conference workshops on Thursday July 18th from 10:00-4:30pm. Choose between two tracks:

PhoneGap Essentials Workshop

  • Beginner: Building your first PhoneGap app
  • Advanced: Architecting PhoneGap apps

  • Learn about Windows Phone 8 tools and support for Cordova with Microsoft and community experts. Have a PhoneGap app? Find out how to migrate your PhoneGap app to the Windows Phone 8 store in a few hours. (More details coming soon!)
