Building Mobile Apps with HTML5

*Note - This will be held on the 2nd floor...Doors open at 6:30pm for refreshments and networking. Talk starts at 7.

About the presentation:

Mobile is hot, and everyone wants to learn how to use HTML5 to create rich mobile experiences across multiple platforms. HTML5 and related toolsets enable sophisticated mobile apps that can compete well with native apps, supporting features like offline storage, camera access, and other device capabilities. This session will give you the big picture on the mobile HTML5 development and deployment ecosystem. Find out what's possible and see how to solve a broad range of challenging problems. You'll learn how a variety of tools and frameworks solve problems by seeing how they were applied, using a production healthcare app as an illustrative example. We'll touch on many technical topics, including cache manifests, offline storage, rich HTML5 frameworks, deployment and security options.

About the speaker:

This session will be led by Jeff Garbers, CTO of Atlanta mobility startup Rover Apps. Jeff has been a pioneer in the field of computing since the early days of the PC. His commercial software products have shipped millions of copies over the years. An expert on usability, mobility, and data communications, Jeff is an engaging speaker willing to share his vast knowledge on the timely topic of mobile Web technology

    I've posted the slides from the presentation here. They may not stand alone very well, as I do like to talk and not just read slides, but if you have questions just post them here and I'll try to answer them. Thanks! http://files.roverapps.com/rover-html5-mobile-slides.pdf

    My amazing job schedule me to work a late shift so a co worker could go on vacation, therefore I was unable to make it as well. Is it possible I could get some notes and resources from the meetup as well.

    We'll post a link here; that'll probably be the easiest way for anybody who was there (or who wasn't) to find out about it.

    As a marketing person I learned a lot about HTML5 plus more on how it fits into MOBILE APPS. This information increases my ability to influence business prospects decisions on interactive internet marketing and website development. Your meetup last evening was very helpful. I am particularly interested in marketing and appreciate the information provided. I have attended over 30 different developer meetups to find out what and who is out there to inform our business members and help them find the right folks. If you like, shoot me your email address to see their names and URLs, or view my LinkedIn profile. Thanks. RICHARD

    @Cameron the building has bike racks. On the 15th street side. A lady in my office that rides to work says they've got a camera watching them, too.

  • Lee J.

    I'm not going to be able to make it after all - Will there be notes sent out afterward? I was really looking forward to this presentation.

  • Wesley H.

    @Cameron - I would hope so. They do have a parking garage, but not 100% sure about bike racks.

    July 19, 2012

  • Cameron W.

    I know I'm late to the party, but does the building have any bike racks or should I go leave my bike at arts center station?

    I'll be going over a lot of content, and of course taking questions, but we won't be actually building apps during the session -- it's more of an overview of options, as there are so many. So unless you'll want to take notes on your laptop, you can probably leave it home.

  • Michelle S.

    should we bring lap tops? is it interactive?

    July 18, 2012

  • Wesley H.

    Folks - We will meet on the 2nd floor for this one.
    @Jeff - I usually park in the lot beside the 4 Seasons hotel and walk across to the meetup.
