Learn the pro's and con's of two leading approaches for sharing code between iOS and Android mobile apps. This talk will compare building hybrid html/javascript apps in Ionic and Apache Cordova with building fully native ones in Xamarin -- both Traditional and Xamarin.Forms. We'll cover development speed, quality of end result, maintainability, unit testing, and ramp-up time. You'll come away from this talk with the skills to choose between a native or hybrid architecture for your next cross-platform mobile project.
