Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Myles Eftos – Building mobile web apps

Web Directions South 2010, Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre, October 15 1.40pm.

Presentation slides

Session description

There is no denying that the Apple App Store is huge, but who wants to have to deal with Objective-C? Thankfully, technologies like PhoneGap and Sencha allow web developers to work in languages they know (HTML/CSS/JavaScript) while still making them look native. PhoneGap also allows us to port our apps to other platforms, like Android.

This session will look at the mobile web development lifecycle from building a prototype in the browser, integration with the phone, app submission and some basic marketing tricks.
