Christophe Coenraets: Cross-Platform Mobile Apps with PhoneGap, HTML, Javascript, CSS

HTML has emerged as a powerful alternative to "native" to enable cross-platform mobile application development. But how do you build large, complex, and native-like mobile apps using HTML, JavaScript and CSS? This session covers modern strategies to build large JavaScript projects using JavaScript MVC frameworks, and how to use PhoneGap to leverage the native capabilities of your device in JavaScript and to package your HTML application as a native app for distribution through the different app stores.

Christophe Coenraets is a technical evangelist for Adobe where he focuses on rich Internet applications and enterprise integration.

Alan Greenblatt: A Better Web & Awesome Tools

Adobe has been working extremely hard to push the boundaries of what can be done with HTML, CSS & JavaScript. Ranging from new web standards and browser features, to enhanced and new design and development tools for web and mobile development, there’s a lot going on at Adobe.

Alan brings more than 25 years of software development, technical management expertise and entrepreneurship to his role as Senior Technical Evangelist at Adobe. Over the years Alan has contributed significantly to the development of advanced media technologies offered by both Sun Microsystems and Microsoft.
