In this presentation we demonstrate how an Android application can be cross-compiled to other smartphones such as the iPhone or Windows Phone 7. We will give a technical overview of the cross-compilation process based on the Open Source project XMLVM.
We will demonstrate writing a native Android app with the open source framework Rhodes, which includes the first Android Ruby implementation, written in the NDK to bypass Java entirely. We also show writing an app with Ruboto, which runs on the Android Java stack. We will also discuss how the Embedded Ruby project may affect future Android Ruby development with both of these options.
