I'm a bit late on announcing this, but next week I'll be speaking at the 2016 PhoneGap Day in Lehi, Utah. Unfortunately tickets are sold out, but if get a chance to attend next year, I highly recommend it. PhoneGap Day is an incredibly casual, fun, and just plain exciting way to learn more about Apache Cordova and hybrid mobile development. There's also a full day of deep workshops before the event where you can learn both basics and advanced topics. This year I'm giving a presentation concerning internationalization of data and I hope folks find it useful.
While the US PhoneGap Day is sold out, the European one in Amsterdam is not sold out.
