7:15 - 8:00 Joe Marini - Build Native Apps with HTML5
With all of today's excitement surrounding native apps (at least on mobile devices), web developers have had to watch forlornly while their native counterparts built applications that they could only dream of. Chrome packaged apps help solve that problem by expanding the opportunities for Web developers, giving you the ability to run offline by default, provide an immersive UX that runs outside the browser, leverage Chrome's sync architecture, and access the device hardware. Come learn how to take your web app to the next level by turning it into a Chrome packaged app.
