Fixing the mobile web

A session at beyond tellerrand // web 2013

Tuesday 28th May, 2013

10:00am to 10:45am (CET)

The mobile web got a bad reputation by now. Over-inflated promises, partnered with platforms that didn't allow HTML5 apps to access what they need and non-enthusiastic copy attempts of native apps made it seem like a hack and not worth exploring further. In reality the mobile web is the platform to bet on - if you care about reach and sustainability of your product.

In this talk Chris Heilmann shows how Firefox OS gives the mobile web the boost it needs and why it makes sense to bet on HTML5 and brush up what you already publish instead of betting on a new platform.
