Our seminar won’t make you an expert in a day – it will give you an in-depth look at the capabilities of the new standards, and cover the new way of UI coding. It is designed for an experienced software developer familiar with HTML and CSS (cascading style sheets), going from introduction to minimal competence in one day, while providing the knowledge and tools to continue exploring this new technology on your own.
