The Battle: jQuery Mobile, Sencha Touch and Appcelerator Titanium

Get an in-depth review of the three most popular javascript-based mobile application development platforms - jQuery Mobile, Sencha Touch, and Appcelerator Titanium! You'll review the development tools, hear about the developer and debugging experience, and participate in a brief code review in order to determine which framework is the most
appropriate for your next mobile project! We'll demonstrate how each framework can be used to develop the same mobile app, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each.

    Probably the best of the mobile meetings I've been to in recent memory - Steve should consider doing that presentation every year, great job!

    Aaron Saunders posted this in our other group: For those interested in more information about Appcelerator.

    We have a local meetup group here that I run. If you have ideas for new topics, please suggest them so we can get events rolling.

    I blog about Appcelerator here, I have some open source appcelerator samples here and there are some slides from some of my previous meetups available here

    All, we're going to try something new tonight, which will be used in future meetups. I think you are going to really love this. It will be active at start of main event.

    Looking forward to this. Wish we could throw Enyo into that battle. Lately I've just been using the dartboard to pick which of these to use on each new app.
