Training: "The mobile web platform"

Track: Tutorial / Time: Monday 09:00 - 16:00 / Location: Wordsworth

In the past years, mobile web browsers evolved faster then ever before, offering new possibilities to the web developpers. But in a world ruled by the apps, what is the place of the mobile web ? And can it compete against the application stores ?

  • From the wap to the web
  • (webapps / hybrid apps) VS native apps

Now, from a more technical perspective, if you are still on for the mobile web platform, there are a couple of things that you should be aware of: it has its own rules and it has its own constraints.

  • The mobile web platform: an heterogeneous environment
  • The mobile web platform: a constrained environement

At that point, it will be time for us to dive deeper into the technical side and see:

  • How to build a mobile webapp
  • How to test a mobile webapp
  • How to debug a mobile webapp
  • The most common mistakes

Please bring a laptop with something to view code (a syntax highlighted notepad) and chrome or safari installed.
