  2. educational materials for individual work
  3. a test

2. The main part of the course

Native mobile applications development using NativeScript

The course (the main part) will be entirely based on NativeScript framework. NativeScript technology is built on runtimes, core modules, CLI and plugins, all of which allow for the access to all native APIs directly from JavaScript, TypeScript, Angular or Vue.js. A rich set of cross-platform abstractions helps to quickly create high-quality iOS and Android applications from the same code base. All participants will be provided with an access to NativeScript for the course duration. They will also have an opportunity to meet with NativeScript distributor representatives during the course.

The size of a group:

Groups consist of 10 to 25 participants.

The number of classes:

The main part of the course takes 80 hours (two successive weeks):

  • 40 hours of distance learning (5 days) (synchronous and asynchronous learning)
  • 40 hours of classroom instruction (5 days) at WSB Merito University, the Faculty in Chorzów (with access to IT equipment at the University for the duration of the course).

In the event of an unfavorable epidemic situation, classes will be conducted entirely online (online classes will also be possible if the number of qualified international candidates required to start a group is not granted a visa).

General curriculum:
  • First steps
  • Configuration
