Presentation: Building Mobile HTML5 Apps in Hours, Not Days

Track: Solution Track: Cloud Development and Beyond / Time: Thursday 13:50 - 14:50 / Location: Rutherford Room

HTML5 has delivered on the promise to make building mobile apps work seamlessly across devices and operating systems. But developers looking to build applications still have to code HTML, JavaScript and CSS by hand, often laboriously rebuilding features that exist in native platforms without the benefit of tooling that native platforms offer. New tools in the HTML5 space, like Sencha Designer make building mobile HTML5 apps as fun and easy as building native apps.
