App development solutions in depth

A session at Web Directions Unplugged

Thursday 12th May, 2011

10:45am to 12:40pm (PST)

Building applications adds a whole new level of complexity beyond what developers have been used to when it comes to developing for the web. In this session we look at a number of JavaScript Frameworks, and solutions for packing your HTML5/JS/CSS as apps to be deployed onto iOS, Android, Playbook, webOS, and other platforms as native apps. Hear about

  • SenchaTouch, a rich, sophisticated framework for developing native quality apps using web technologies, from the lead architect of the framework, David Kaneda
  • SproutCore, the open source application development framework
  • Appcelerator, a development environment for building apps using JavaScript
  • PhoneGap, an application platform giving developers access to OS level APIs on iOS, Android and many other platforms

In this session you’ll hear details on each of these solutions, and get the chance to ask questions of the presenters.
