Write once, run everywhere.

Build with Capacitor—Ionic’s reimagining of Cordova and a better way to deliver native features in a hybrid app. 

Join Matt Netkow, Sr. Product Evangelist, as he uses Capacitor, Ionic's new cross-platform app runtime, to build a Progressive Web App with improved native features that runs anywhere—iOS, Android, the web, you name it.

You'll learn:

  • The history of Capacitor and how its creation impacts the next evolution of Hybrid Apps
  • How Capacitor acts as a spiritual successor to Cordova/PhoneGap, while still maintaining compatibility for many plugins
  • How to leverage Capacitor APIs to build an app that acts natively, e.g. accessing rich, native device features—from the camera to geolocation
  • Why the focus on modern tooling and languages makes plugin development and maintenance much easier

You’re in good company. Ionic powers millions of apps at some of the smartest companies in the world.
