A free Nokia Developer webinar, Introduction to Xpress Web App Builder for Series 40, will feature live coding demos that show you how to use the new Nokia Xpress Web App Builder to create a Series 40 web app in mere minutes. You will also learn how to import your web app into other Nokia tools for customisation.
Through live coding demonstrations of the new Nokia Xpress Web App Builder, this webinar will show you how easy it is to create a Series 40 web app from RSS feeds, social media content, and even clipped live web content. You will learn how to customise your app with a unique look and feel, advertising, and other features. You can also submit your resulting web app to Nokia Store for access to millions of consumers around the world.
Join Tapan Acharya, lead developer consultant and evangelist with Nokia. He will explain the architecture of the new Xpress Web App Builder and describe how it relates to the Series 40 web apps platform. Tapan will also demonstrate the tool as he creates and tests high-quality web apps.
