Got a taste for it? Be there for the dev track at Web Directions South 2012.
This presentation was recorded at Web Directions Code in Melbourne on May 24 2012.
Where once web pages were sandboxed, with little if any access to the underlying device capabilities, increasingly, this is no longer the case.
From the first steps of geolocation, which enables any web site or application to ask the browser for a user’s location, an increasing range of device features are being exposed in the DOM: the file system, camera, gyrosopes, address book, compasses and more.
In this session, Dave Johnson, originator of the phoneGap project delves into HTML5 and related device APIs, enabling us to build richer, more sophisticated applications in the browser.
