Awesome Mobile Web Tools and Frameworks
Then you don’t want to miss Mobile Portland this month as we take a look at three awesome tools and frameworks for mobile web development.
We’re pleased to welcome David Kaneda, Brian LeRoux and Patrick Mueller to Portland. They’ve graciously agreed to take time out from their busy OSCON schedules to talk to us about:
- World Premiere! Client-side data-bound mobile charting with Sencha Touch
- Cloud-based app binaries using PhoneGap Build.
- Weinre: a remote debugger for web pages on mobile device.
If you’re doing any mobile web development work, these are tools you need to know about. And given the number of apps that include embedded web views, it means nearly everyone is doing some sort of mobile web development.
Special OSCON Note
Mobile Portland is a free monthly meeting open to anyone. If you are in town for OSCON, please feel free to join us. All that we ask is that you RSVP so we know how many chairs we need.
You can take the MAX train for free from the convention center and then take a short walk (.4 mi) to the meeting location.
If you’re a Portlander who isn’t attending OSCON, you should! Not only is the largest open source conference, but there are mobile tracks with detailed presentations from Patrick Mueller and two of Brian LeRoux’s Nitobi colleagues.
About the Speakers
Brian LeRoux is the lead at Nitobi Software with the prestigious title SPACELORD!1!! He also has the dubious distinction of being the creator of wtfjs.com despite a twisted love for the language of the web. To make matters worse he actually has a non-breaking space tattoo.
Aside all these ridiculous distractions he is also responsible for leading the direction on the wildly popular PhoneGap software project that has the audacious goal to provide a web platform complete with device APIs for all smartphone operating systems.
David Kaneda, Creative Director, Sencha
David currently works as creative director at Sencha, and is responsible for the look and feel of their websites and software, including Sencha Touch.
Patrick Mueller, WebKit contributor, IBM
Patrick Mueller is a software developer at IBM in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina. He’s been working on web software and mobile software for a long time. Don’t ask how long, unless you want to hear about how great it was to use Smalltalk for web and mobile software development.
