Developing OutSystems Mobile Apps

The Developing OutSystems Mobile Apps Boot Camp is an onsite 5-day trainer-led course that introduces students to mobile application development with OutSystems.  The course covers the fundamentals of developing native mobile applications, such as modeling data on the device and database, data synchronization, client-side and server-side logic, user interface development, native app generation, plugin development and much more, with a very focused hands-on experience in the OutSystems Development Environment.

By the end of the week you will be able to start developing your own mobile applications and generate a native app that you can use in your device. 

Also, you'll be able to take a shot at the Associate Mobile Developer certification for free!

Developer Boot Camp

What will you learn?

The fundamentals of mobile development in OutSystems and how they can be applied in building native mobile applications. You will learn how to:

  • Create your data model on the device and synchronize it with the server;
  • Visually build your business logic;
  • Create amazing user interfaces;
  • Develop plugins to use native device capabilities;
  • … and much more.

What do you need?

Your laptop with Service Studio installed. A few days before the Boot Camp, you will receive detailed instructions with all the information you need.

Although there are no mandatory prerequisites, for a smoother and more complete learning experience we recommend following the OutSystems Overview online course, before attending this training. It takes approximately 45 minutes to watch the 7 short online videos.

Who should attend?

This course is targeted to:

  • Developers who are either new to OutSystems, or have limited experience with the platform, and want to learn about mobile application development with OutSystems.
  • Architects and project managers who need to better understand how OutSystems delivers mobile applications.

For this course, attendees should have some knowledge of relational databases, basic programming concepts (not specific to any language), and basic mobile technologies.
