Talk Title

The Murky World of Hybrid Apps

Talk Description

Which is best … apps or web? Why not have both? The lines are getting increasingly blurred between the web and native apps. Operating systems like Windows 10 are able to execute JavaScript from a remote web server, web apps are able to reach into your Microsoft Office documents and fiddle around with them, you can wrap your website with rich, native functionality. In this talk we'll look at the murky and confusing world of hosted hybrid web apps. We'll look at the different tools available for creating hosted hybrid apps on multiple platforms ushc as Manifold JS. We'll look at where hosted hybrid apps work well and where they don't
