Mobile development based on HTML, JavaScript and CSS has been getting a lot of traction in the last year. Because it is now possible to write cross device applications and target a big share of the available devices, a whole new world of possibilities is opening itself up to web developers. In this talk I will give you insight into the current state of mobile cross-device application development based on JavaScript, HTML and CSS will show you how you can use JavaScript toolkits like the Dojo Toolkit to support your development with powerful tools. I will show how you can start writing apps now and I will give you a glimpse into the future by showing prototypes of web based mobile applications communicating with real hardware like your home appliances and much more.
