Is your temper the only thing getting inflated by your XML layouts? Or do you want to do custom controls with less than hundreds of lines of extra code? Stacy Devino & Stephen Wyile will explain resources available to rapidly build your Android application using familiar tools and easily convert it to --gasp-- other platforms!, all while using Eclipse as little as possible in the process. We'll discuss several of these popular "non-native" development tools at a glance, then go deeper with examples of PhoneGap and jQuery Mobile, which we have used to win at multiple hackathons thus far in 2012. Bring your voodoo dolls and afterward, let's torture everything we love to hate about native Android development!
