Hybrid Web Apps with Sencha Touch 2


Martin de Keijzer

Talk description:

Creating apps usually is a very time consuming process when it comes to development. You need to write your code for all different platforms like iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone. Sencha Touch solves this problem by giving you a framework for the langauge we as web developers all know and love; Javascript! In this session we will see how easy it is to create an app that looks and feels like it is a native app. We will be using known patterns like MVC and a pattern for data communications. We will also look into the pro’s and cons of using HTML5 and Javascript, and end with some performance optimizations.
