Every year, dozens of new technologies emerge in the HTML5 and mobile web arena. We’ll discuss the criteria to evaluate how the different solutions complement, overlap, and contrast with each other.
I’ll introduce jQuery Mobile and show how it works with PhoneGap to design and create touch-optimized, flexible, responsive mobile user interfaces.
We’ll use Ripple, a powerful device API simulator, to run PhoneGap apps in a desktop browser. We’ll then see how another mobile web tool, Weinre, runs in a browser to remotely debug a PhoneGap app running on device.
Throughout the talk, I’ll illustrate the capabilities with implementation examples. Attendees will be able to follow along with either the AppLaud Cloud IDE or with the AppLaud PhoneGap Eclipse plug-in. If you choose Eclipse, please install Android Development Tools and the plug-in before the session.
Paul Beusterien founded Mobile Developer Solutions in 2010. MDS’s initial product is an Eclipse plugin that enables easy web application programming for Android. Web app project creation and configuration with PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile and Sencha Touch takes only a few clicks.
MDS recently released AppLaud Cloud, a cloud-based Android IDE to provide Android developers a rich development experience that is more streamlined, focused and usable than the alternatives.
Before MDS, Paul led development tools for Wind River Systems and Symbian Foundation.
Paul has spoken about mobile development topics at Android Dev Camp, Mobile 2.0 Developer Day, Eclipse Day at Googleplex, OSCON, AnDevCon II, and several bay area meetups.
