The presentation begins by giving an introduction to mobile development and specifically the hybrid approach, as well as the advantages of how it can quickly turn a typical enterprise web application into a mobile app. Then there will be demos: 1) Showing a cell phone product shopping catalog in the web browser, with the front-end UI written in React which makes calls to the Reactive Java Backend to obtain the product data in the database (AWS DynamoDB) via REST API, 2) Demonstrates how to use the Ionic framework and the CLI to "transform" the react web app into a mobile app, ready to be deployed onto an Android device, 3) Demonstrates how to use the Android debugger, adb, to perform debugging. Wrapping up the presentation will be a discussion of the drawbacks of the hybrid approach, and a comparison of it against other mobile frameworks such as React Native and Kotlin/Native.
