This talk is a technical deep-dive in how PhoneGap works, and how to extend it by writing plugins and implementing other features with PhoneGap and the Android SDK. This will cover the following:
Due to the increasing diversity of devices, it’s likely that a user may want to add support for a device-specific feature. This will allow users to write apps that take advantage of the best the web and native have to offer so that their app can be a First Class application on Android.
This talk will be based on previous work done by Nitobi and other PhoneGap developers and will look at various case studies where we decide what the best tool for the job is, and show exactly what can and what can’t be done with PhoneGap, even with the Android browser.
Joe is the creator of the Android implementation of PhoneGap, which has been used in products featured in Popular Science, and as part of the Sony Web SDK. He also works on various client projects developing mobile applications for many platforms using PhoneGap and other frameworks that leverage web technologies.
