Maui Business Brainstormers (MBB) will offer guest speaker Greg Rewis, who will present “Building Apps on Maui” on April 22 and 24.

Greg Rewis, the guest presenter, has been passionate about the Web since putting his first "home page" online in 1994. His career has taken him around the world, from the early days of desktop publishing, to a start-up in Hamburg, Germany, the glory days of the Web at Macromedia, and finally his role at Adobe before trading in the travel to do some "real development" at Stremor Corp.

Rewis, the co-author of "Mastering CSS with Dreamweaver CS3" and "Mastering CSS with Dreamweaver CS4," is a regular contributor to industry publications.

At these workshops, Rewis will review important aspects of mobile development and discuss using HTML5 and Javascript as a development option. Attendees will also learn how to leverage a mobile UI framework (jQuery Mobile), how to add, store and retrieve data via APIs with a Backend-as-a-Service (open-source Usergrid) and how to package an app for devices (and the app stores) using PhoneGap.

Walter Cameron Center, The Accidental Consultant, Harrison Tsai Industries and Maui Apple Society.
