Tonight we will kick off the evening with a full talk by Matt Rogish on "PhoneGap, Cross Platform, and you". We'll then have two lightening talks. One will be by Jonathan Taqqu on "Identity in Mobile" and the other will be by John Oliva on "Titanium, bringing native user experience and cross-platform efficiency".
PhoneGap, Cross Platform, and You
In this talk, Matt will discuss the pros and cons of PhoneGap, give a brief survey of other cross-platform mobile application frameworks, and an overview to the PhoneGap architecture/ecosystem.

Identity in mobile
Establishing a persistent identifier between mobile web and mobile apps is far more complicated than establishing identity on the desktop web. In addition, understanding how multiple devices (e.g, phone, tablet, desktop) connect to a single user is a major area of interest of many. Learn about these issues in more detail and about the various approaches that a new cottage industry has begun to build in the absence of more robust solutions.
