Prerequisite Knowledge

An understanding of the difference between HTML and JavaScript, web apps vs native apps. There will be some light technical discussion of code to amplify a point, but it's not essential to actually understanding the point.


  • Where will your next customers come from?
  • Why do the next billion matter, and where do they come from?
  • What devices do they use?
  • What challenges do they face? Devices, network etc.
  • What is coming in web standards to ameliorate some of these?
  • What can browsers do to help – and how do proxy browsers work?
  • How can web developers ensure their sites work properly with proxy browsers? what is Opera doing to make its Opera Mini proxy browser faster and better?
