    If we are the cutting edge of technology, shouldn't we be able to make a slide presentation work? It used to work perfectly with actual photographic slides. We seem to have made it worse.

    Chris, working app samples are a good idea.

    Didn't see your previous post. From the time stamps, we were probably typing at the same time or the page didn't refresh...Thanks.

    @Jerome we'll be posting Suzanne's slides shortly. thanks for your patience.

    Excellent presentation and valuable info.

    Wondering if Suzanne's slide deck will be made available. Very valuable info in it. Or is there a link to it somewhere on the Moto web site?

    Or you can encapsulate with PhoneGap and similar technology. Keep in mind also that there is in most cases a backend piece that can be protected, delivering what the client in the browser asks when needed. Minifying is part of the equation for a first level of protection. But with enough time and right tools any code can be reverse engineered, even chips can be with electronic microscope and scan...

    You can always create the code so that only your company can understand it through obfuscation.

    It was a good meeting but i disliked all the iOS and Apple bashing by the Motorola employees. Its no wonder they are not leading in sales of their devices.

    A great presentation! Kudos to Motorola for hosting a very classy Meetup.

    well organized. great value.

    "Code security" in terms of your code being viewed or copied by someone: HTML5 code can be viewed, Native Android applications code can also be reverse-compiled. That's what I heard.

    The topic was little generic. The other day , the phonegap meetup was really informative for all levels. Maybe a little bit of handson could have made developers happy. But still a great presentation by Suzanne. And Stackmob presentation was also good.

    I really liked the question on "Code Security" ? Can any one help me, what was the response given by the judge panel on this ?

    - Interesting topic and good presentation!
    - More robust examples on how to add value in the native side would have been helpful.
    - Would be good to anticipate possible issues (e.g. having the slides in the cloud).

    Good Presentation on Motorola Mobility resources available to Developers.

    June 15, 2012

  • Chris P.

    I thought it was a good overview, but would have like to see some working app examples of the differences between Native and HTML5 implementations.

    slide deck for download?

    There are a lot of solutions that fit different scenarios. Appcelerator provides a better solution for doing native look and feel than Phonegap, Enyo, etc., but at the expense of not being as HTML5-y. All of these solutions are good, but tend to fill slightly different needs, so it all depends on the needs of the project. I'll be at the event as well tonight (admittedly without the nifty t-shirts and stickers) to answer questions on Appcelerator's Titanium Mobile.

    June 14, 2012

  • Suyash J.

    PhoneGap is the best in my opinion

    June 14, 2012

  • Art D.

    Or you can use the Enyo JavaScript framework (http://enyojs.com­) on top of PhoneGap if you want a cross platform, fully open source solution where you can use the same code on several mobile platforms and the desktop. I'll be at the event tonight, hopefully with Enyo t-shirts and stickers.

    Phonegap is more of a wrapper that bridges native functionality and HTML, and enables you to turn HTML into apps that you can distribute using Play or the App Store. I'd recommend checking out Sencha Touch or jquery mobile if you're seeking to get a touch optimized user experience. Or, if you'd like to abstract away further than that, check out MobileNation (www.mobilenationhq.com)

    Is Phonegap ( http://phonegap.com­ ) the best HTML5 development framework, or are there better alternatives?

    June 14, 2012

  • Randy K.

    definitely Arshad. bring it up in the Q&A for sure.

    June 13, 2012

  • Arshad S.

    I hope there will be some discussion of cross-platform tools.
