Developers attending this session will have a clear view of what PhoneGap can do today and were its going in the future!
With more than 5 billion handsets on the planet, mobile app development is rapidly becoming the most important aspect of the web development discipline. But, mobile platforms are fragmented, distribution can be a nightmare and most developers don't know how to port their design and development skills to mobile devices.
In this session you'll learn how to use your development skills in conjunction with PhoneGap; how to deploy your apps on as many devices as possible; and how to get them into various app stores and directories. Find out how easy it can be to add mobile app development to your toolkit.
If you're a web developer, mobile developer, mobile designer or a project manager in charge of mobile development, this session will help you decide whether or not the PhoneGap open source framework is right for your mobile development projects.
Brian is one of the original PhoneGap developers, and helped create, lead, and foster the open source community surrounding it. Today he works at Adobe making the mobile web a better place for developers.
