Brightcove Keynote to Focus on Hybrid Development at DevCon5 HTML5 & Mobile App Developers Conference on November 29, 2012 in South San Francisco
(November 20, 2012) NORWALK, CT--TMC (News - Alert), and Crossfire Media today announced that Ashley Streb, vice president of Brightcove, will be the keynote speaker on Thursday, November 29, 2012 12:00 p.m. at DevCon5 HTML5 & Mobile App Developers Conference, at the South San Francisco Conference Center in San Francisco, California. The conference kicks off on November 27 - concluding on November 29.
HTML5 is the only way the industry can manage development effectively, and app development needs a more hybrid approach. This is a key theme at Devcon5 where Ashley Streb VP of Brightcove will discuss how Brightcove's App Cloud platform is designed for the next wave of app development for the mobile world in a session, titled: The Rise of the Hybrid Apps.
DevCon5 is known for assembling the premier thinkers and speakers in the HTML5 and the development community. Today, more than ever, it's a great time to be a frontend web developer writing apps. With the advent of HTML5/CSS3 and native containers, there is a strong case to be made that hybrid app development is the wave of the future. Streb's session will examine why and when hybrid app development makes sense.
Streb will walk through some real-world examples of hybrid apps and look at the current landscape of both UIframeworks; Sencha Touch, jQuery Mobile, jQTouch, jo, zepto, and native containers PhoneGap, Appcelerator and Brightcove App Cloud.
'Brightcove's thrown down the gauntlet in an effort to focus developers on the web economy,' said Carl Ford (News - Alert), CEO at Crossfire Media. 'The opportunity with mobile is as big as the Web and is still exploding. For developers, the app, the cloud and the device need to deliver a seamless experience for the user.'
