About the Talk
PhoneGap hacker Brian LeRoux will talk about new breed of cross-platform capabilities from the W3C called Device APIs, their relationship to HTML5, web standards, WebKit and mobile development with the most popular platforms. If you are interested in mobile web dev for iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone you'll really enjoy this talk. You can expect live code, remote debugging and cloud compilation, too.
About the Speaker
Brian LeRoux (@brianleroux) has been thrashing devices with the PhoneGap project since its inception at Nitobi in Vancouver, Canada.
These days he works at Adobe Systems here in SF on the open source analogue Apache Cordova. He's mostly known for his work on PhoneGap but also happens to have created http://wtfjs.com and sports a tattoo. Brian believes in a future that is mobile, open source, and will be created.
