We believe in openness at Appcelerator, which is why we’re excited to announce the newest addition to our Open Source offerings. As of today, we’re open sourcing our training curriculum just like we’ve done and will continue to do with our Titanium SDK. What does this mean? Well, it means that our amazing community now has free access to all of our training slides, labs, and examples for personal use, for sharing with friends, presenting at their kid’s school, use at universities, or any other non for profit use you can think up.
Why are we doing this? We believe that the best stuff in life comes from the power of community. We hope that by bringing the power of the community to our training materials, we’ll more quickly enrich the quality of the materials with more examples, better labs, more detailed slides, and maybe even other media such as videos components. To be honest, we don’t know exactly where this will go, but we believe that innovation requires trying new things and taking risks. Hopefully you agree and will demonstrate your vote by downloading the materials now and contributing ideas and materials!
The course projects are hosted on GitHub:
- Building Native Apps with Titanium (level 1 course)
- Advanced Titanium Mobile Development (level 2 course)
- To use either, you will need a copy of our HTML5 presentation engine. We use a modified version of the awesome Reveal.js project.
We have really great training partners who have worked very hard and invested real dollars to join our Authorized Training Partner program. For that reason, we have tagged the slides with the CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 license, which prohibits commercial use. If you’re interested in commercial use, please become an Authorized Training Partner. If you’re unsure whether your use is permitted, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be glad to help you out. Looking for a great training experience? Attend a class offered by one of our ATPs or by Appcelerator at our Mountain View headquarters.
