Hybrid Apps and Cross-Platform Development Using the PDK

A session at webOS Developer Day

  • Sam Clegg
  • Jelte Liebrand

Saturday 20th November, 2010

10:20am to 11:20am (EST)

There are different ways to develop and deploy cross-platform apps. Hybrid apps allow the developer to unlock the best of both browser interfaces and native mobile components. Using HTML5 and JavaScript, browsers can access a phone’s built-in features like contacts, camera, and calendar. The HP webOS PDK enables developers to use third-party engines and libraries to develop C/C++ apps for webOS and other mobile platforms. In this session, Ben Combee explains two options for cross-platform development and discusses the impacts and advantages of each. Engineers from Quickoffice and Airplay present case studies on how they leveraged their code and assets to bring rich immersive games and applications to webOS and other platforms.
