Supercharge your Hybrid Apps with Microservices for Mobile

In this hands-on session, we will first build a simple Cordova based mobile app using the barcode scanner plugin. Then, we’ll build a microservice written in Node.js to retrieve some hard-to-get data. Along the way, we’ll explore the benefits of this approach, and why hybrid mobile apps are really just an extension of microservices to the client side. Participants only need to bring a laptop with a modern web browser, and will leave the session primed with practical experience building microservices for their mobile apps.
