Mobile Web Whirlwind Tour of PhoneGap, Cordova & Topcoat
YOW! 2013 Melbourne
Mobile is on the rise, and with it comes mobile web technology. The past year has seen tremendous adoption of the free/open source PhoneGap project with over 1 million downloads. Building fast and clean apps has never been easier thanks to a new CSS library from Adobe called Topcoat.
In this talk, Brian will demonstrate how to quickly build a mobile application using PhoneGap with Topcoat, how it all works under the hood, how it relates to Apache Cordova, and where the project is going in the coming year.
