Time: Wednesday 14:40 - 15:30

HTML has emerged as a powerful alternative to "native" to enable cross-platform mobile application development.  In this session, Christophe discusses when to use which technology (native or HTML), how to build large, complex, secure, and native-like mobile apps using HTML, and how to use PhoneGap to package your HTML application as a native app for distribution through the different public or private app stores.
