[New Venue: The Office Pub - Food and Drinks Available to Order]
PhoneGap is changing the way applications are being written and distributed in the mobile marketplace.
But what is the real cost in terms of performance and native app user experience? Is there an emerging mobile experience that is native to PhoneGap and goes beyond vendor ambitions?
Join us at the inaugural PhoneGap Toronto meetup to explore this and more. The goal is to make the meetup of value to anyone with a stake in the future of mobile development - developers, designers, managers, and business owners.
Location: This meetup will be at "The Office Pub" on the 2nd floor which has TVs spread around to watch presentations. You can also order food and drinks like a regular pub during the presentations.
