Come discuss PhoneGap 3

This post is more than 2 years old.

I've seen a lot of people (including myself!) have some issues with PhoneGap 3. It is definitely a big change from previous versions. I thought it might be good to have an open meeting over Connect (this is our online meeting solution, all you need is a browser) later this week to talk about it. This won't be a formal presentation per se (although I've got a few slides in mind just to help outline the discussion), but rather a chance for me to explain how things have changed from earlier versions and talk about some things you can to make the process easier. It is also a chance for you to ask questions and share your thoughts about PhoneGap 3.0.

I won't pretend that I'll have all the answers, but I'll do my best to gather questions and - at worst - bring them to the smarter folks and try to get answers posted here as soon as possible.

The meeting will be this Friday, September 6th, at 1:30 PM CST. You can attend by simply going to this URL: If you think you will attend, please RSVP by posting a comment below. (You don't have to, I'm just judging the expected size.)

Not sure if this is the right forum, but I'm interested in the storage API and how one can utilize prepopulated DB's...

Comment 25 by Raymond Camden posted on 9/5/2013 at 6:45 PM

Tom, my plan is to just talk to you guys about it and then see what folks think. We can discuss anything really. I used to do "open sessions" with Andrew Trice (fellow evangelist) on a regular schedule, but... well life gets busy. ;) I am going to try to get that started again.

So... good news/bad news. For those who attended, thank you! We had 50ish people, a good discussion, it was great I think.

For those who did not attend... I forgot to hit record.

I'm really sorry.

On the flip side I'm going to try to run this again next Friday.

I am deeply sorry and will not forget next time.
