HTML5 promises to pave the way for easy, device-neutral mobile app development. But, until HTML5 supports sophisticated cross-platform apps, developers are stuck building native apps for various mobile devices. Or are they?
In this session you’ll learn how combining HTML5 with the open source PhoneGap (www.phonegap.com) framework bridges the gap between what’s possible with HTML5 today and the engaging mobile apps developers want to build. See how HTML5 and PhoneGap work together and learn how to expose device features outside of the existing HTML5 spec, such as camera.
Dave is co-founder and CTO of Nitobi Inc, a Vancouver-based software development company that created the PhoneGap open source framework for cross-platform mobile app development. He holds a BASc in Electrical Engineering (UBC) and a PhD in Solid State Physics from London’s Imperial College. Dave has presented at various conferences, including CommunityOne, The Ajax Experience, XTech and JavaOne. He is a co-author of “Enterprise Ajax” and has written for numerous journals and magazines including JavaWorld.com, Adobe Developer Center and XML.com.
