Apache Cordova “Hello World” meets the real world
September 14, 2015
Everyone who’s ever learned to code (and probably a few more) knows about the “<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%22Hello,_World!%22_program” title=[wiki] Hello, World! program">Hello World” program. Your first program in any language simply says “Hello World” and from that all other great code is derived. In 1972 that simple bit of a program taught you something and that remains true today… if you’re learning a new language. However it has become common place for this same concept to be applied to programming frameworks, though in many of those cases you might not learn anything. If you google “ExpressJS hello world” you end up with a sample that actually teaches you a little bit. However, when you start with Apache Cordova’s “Hello World” you don’t learn anything beyond how to run one command. So I rectified that.
