About the Talk

SFHTML5 is excited to welcome back Rob Hawkes (@robhawkes) to talk about Mozilla’s Boot to Gecko project that aims to revolutionise the way we develop for mobile devices. He’ll highlight the key technologies involved in its creation and explain why a mobile experience created with HTML and JavaScript is a good idea.
