Version: GeneXus 16

GeneXus for mobile course

Prototyping features and Deployment of applications for Smart Devices.

GeneXus provides a variety of mechanisms to easily prototype applications for Smart Devices, either with emulators or by executing directly on the device, depending on the mobile platform selected. Once the application is ready the startup comes next, that is publishing it on a server of our own or in the store corresponding to the platform selected. This video shows an analysis of the steps to follow and things to be borne in mind for the deployment of the app.

The study focuses on how to develop mobile applications for Android and iOS with GeneXus, in versions capable of functioning with or without connectivity.  

Instructions are provided on how to follow the platforms’ guidelines, including the conceptual model underlying the applications, their architecture, the UI (User Interface) design, and the ways to achieve a satisfactory UX (User Experience). Additionally, the course includes methods for programming behavior, prototyping and startup and how to add security.  

The course shows the development of an Android simplified app by way of example, considering this simpler prototyping in the absence of a Mac. However, concepts are analogous for iOS, and the course includes mention to specificities for each platform when applicable.

To acquire the training necessary for developing applications for Smart Devices with GeneXus.
Designed for
 individuals interested in developing applications for Smart Devices. For those lacking experience with the tool, we recommend that the Introduction to GeneXus course be done in advance.
Modes: You may choose between the in-person course (in which case we suggest you check the schedule before contacting our academic partners in your country) and the self-study course. 
  •  Classroom duration: 36 hours (tehory + practice)
  •  Self-study duration: videos duration (6 hours) + Practice: 16 hours
Students will be able to take the exam corresponding to the GeneXus Developer for Smart Devices as long as they previously have a GeneXus Junior Analyst certificate.
This exam is taken on a computer and includes multiple choice and true/false questions about the topics learned throughout the course, to confirm that the student has effectively learned the essential concepts required.

Previous versions


Simple exercises that will enable you to test several concepts relative to the version of GeneXus 16 for mobile smart devices. In the following link you can get the XPZ files used in the videos.

The practice material consists of a simplified version of the EventDay application which is the study subject in the videos. 

Bonus Material

To take the course and work on the exercises you need the trial version of GeneXus.

The trial version of GeneXus 16 will automatically install, among other things, the Android SDK. If you already have a full version of GeneXus you will have to install it manually. Additionally, we suggest that you use the SDK emulator to benefit from the advantages of hardware acceleration in your computer. Learn more about this topic by accessing this wiki link
When using the emulator, make sure that it is open before the first Run. You don’t need to close it and open it every time, just leave it open while you prototype.
