MobDevCon 2013 - Norwich UK

July 3, 2013

Join Boydlee at MobDevCon in Norwich on the 3rd of July. Tickets are available soon from http://www.mobdevcon.com - agenda and speaker profiles are already online.
Abstract:There has been a long debate recently about native vs non-native apps with native supporters pointing to various statements, such as those by Facebook, that anything but native development is second best. The truth though, is that this is not a black and white argument - in between native apps and HTML 5 lies a vast array of hybrid and cross platform solutions that you simply can't afford to ignore. In this session Boydlee will explain why cross platform development is really the only way forward for the future of developers in the post-PC world.
