Bad news, folks - the number of devices we have to support isn't going to get any smaller. As developers, we now support a plethora of devices and platforms ranging from cheap Android phones through to iPads and even (it's true!) traditional desktop PCs. That would be fine, except we rarely have any extra development time to optimise for them!
There is good new, though! Hybrid apps continue to let us target all these form factors with the same core code, and relatively minor additions to create responsive designs. They're not a new concept, but the scope of what is possible has grown significantly. This session will dive into the current state of the art for hybrid, including technologies such as PhoneGap, FireFox OS, Chrome Packaged Apps and node-webkit. By the time you leave, you'll know exactly what you need to build a modern hybrid app which is perfectly suited to your multi-device ecosystem.
