In this presentation, PPK will describe the mobile world and its 8 to 10 most important players. He'll try to make sense of a confusing ecosystem that web developers will need to learn to know better, and he will go way beyond just iPhone and Android.

Why is Apple so succesful (apart from the quality of its products)? How bad is the Android fragmentation going to be? What about Windows Phone, Tizen, Nokia, Samsung, and all the rest? This session will give you some insight in these important questions.

Presented by Peter-Paul Koch at the Breaking Development Conference held in April 2012 in Orlando, FL.

Peter-Paul Koch is a mobile platform strategist, consultant, and trainer in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He concentrates on Web technologies, mobile websites, and W3C Widgets.

He specializes in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and browser compatibility. He has won international renown with his browser compatibility research and his publications on this site and others, frequently speaks at conferences, has founded Fronteers, the Dutch association of front-end professionals, and advises browser vendors on their implementation of Web standards.

In 2009 he shifted from traditional desktop browsers and sites to the mobile Web, and he never looked back. He discovered that mobile devices and browsers are in even more need of description than their desktop counterparts, and set himself to the task.

On the Web he is universally known as ppk.

His grandfather was a coffee planter on Java, so he is genetically predetermined to be an expert on most languages that have "Java" in their name.
