Cordova is a platform that is used for building mobile apps using HTML, CSS and JS. We can think of Cordova as a container for connecting our web app with native mobile functionalities. Web applications cannot use native mobile functionalities by default. This is where Cordova comes into picture. It offers a bridge for connection between web app and mobile device. By using Cordova, we can make hybrid mobile apps that can use camera, geolocation, file system and other native mobile functions.

We are creating this tutorial for HTML, CSS and JavaScript developers that want to learn about mobile development. During the course we will go through most of the Cordova key points and we will show you how to use most of the Cordova plugins.

All of the examples provided can be used as a starting point in your own apps. We will also try to explain theory behind Cordova so you can get better picture of building process of hybrid mobile apps. We will try to show you examples as simple as possible so you can understand the essential principle of the Cordova development.

You need to be familiar with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. If you ever created single page apps (SPA), that knowledge will be useful when working with Cordova but it is not necessary to understand most of the things this tutorial offers.
