Andrew Betts, MD of Assanka on HTML5 and Mobile

A session at Feb Magento meet, A-listers on HTML5, MongoDB and PHP - PART I, thanks to getbrandid.com

Wednesday 1st February, 2012

7:30pm to 8:00pm (GMT)

Assanka were acquired by the FT in early 2012. This is the story of a company that showed the world what HTML5 web apps can do. With their revolutionary FT web app, they told Apple where to stick their iOS approval process and commission fees on app revenues. If you haven't seen it already, check out app.ft.com, from the intro splash screen, to HTML5 local storage, it really looks and feels like a native app. Simply remarkable.
