PhoneGap Presentations from HTML5DevConf

I was  searching the web earlier this week for an older presentation from a few months back, and just happened to stumble across my recent presentations from HTML5DevConf from this past October. Looks like the videos were posted in November, but I’m just seeing them now. I had two sessions: Designing and Architecting PhoneGap and Mobile Web Apps and Getting Started with PhoneGap and Cross-Platform Mobile Development, and if you weren’t able to attend them, you’re still in luck! Here are the videos from those sessions:

Designing and Architecting PhoneGap and Mobile Web Apps

Tired of Hello World? In this session, we explore best practices to build real-world PhoneGap applications. We investigate the Single Page Architecture, HTML templates, effective Touch events, performance techniques, modularization and more. We also compare and contrast the leading JavaScript and Mobile Frameworks. This session is a must If you plan to build a PhoneGap application that has more than a couple of screens.

Getting Started with PhoneGap and Cross-Platform Mobile Development

Unfortunately, I ran into network issues which prevented some of my samples from working in this one, but you’ll still be able to get the point.

HTML has emerged as a powerful alternative to “native” to enable cross-platform mobile application development. In this session, you learn how to leverage your existing HTML and JavaScript skills to build cross-platform mobile applications, how to access the device features (camera, accelerometer, contacts, file system, etc) using JavaScript APIs, and how to package your HTML application as a native app for distribution through the different app stores.

    Hi Andrew. Did you happen to post any of your code of the apps you presented at the conference? Like the list applications and such. These really blur the line between native and hybrid.
