In economics, the term ‘fungible’ is used to describe different products/services that are functionally equal. Current mobile devices are not fungible and almost all responsive web and cross-platform development efforts are aimed at this problem. Developers have to choose between web and native solutions, optimized web sites vs responsive website, native apps vs hybrid/cross-platform app, etc. Imagine you could implement a single version of an application using programming language and execution environment of your choice, and be able to make it available on ANY mobile device, maintaining access to device advanced hardware features and holding full control over the UI. I would like to give you an insight into the current research in this area, which could bring us the ability to build not only rich cross-platform applications, but truly ubiquitous applications!
By day I am an Assistant Professor at Department of Information Technology, Poznan University of Economics. By night I do freelance jobs as a mobile and Internet solutions architect. My current interests are focused on device-independent applications and multi-device applications. I am leading research projects for companies such as ABB Corporate Research and Santander Group and I run courses related to mobile technology, programming, and Internet of Things/Internet of Services.
