Open Source software plays a leading role in software development on different platforms. Mobile is no exception, and we see several open source projects emerging. This happens on different layers such as the operating system, app and widget engines and standards, developers tools, software libraries, device detection software and transcoding engines. The importance of this initiatives must be emphasized and drive a whole movement of innovative mobile web applications.
This BoF session will specifically focus on (emerging) open source projects and solutions helping software developers to overcome the current device and platform fragmentation and to make rich mobile experiences across multiple devices. Device fragmentation and lack of well defined standards and developer practices hold back the entry long term projects on mobile and need the attention of the OS community.
Examples of relevant projects that can be further discussed are WURFL, BONDI, W3C widget standards, Siruna, PhoneGap, Open Source for mobile change and many more.
In a round table discussion several open source projects and experiences can be presented and discussed. If you like your project to be featured, contact the moderator of this BoF session.
