  • Optimizing HTML5 for Distribution on Mobile Devices
  • Time: Tuesday @ 5:00pm | Room N-125

Save time and trouble when submitting your HTML5 app to a mobile device marketplace by learning the common errors and performance tips that will help you optimize your web app for mobile devices.

This session will teach you the best practices around improving frame rate and ways to optimize <canvas>. We’ll also help you avoid mistakes, such as common cases that kill scrolling performance. We’ll also show you how to profile performance bottlenecks on-device using the Web App Tester tool. You will get a peek into the Chromium-based web runtime on Kindle Fire devices and learn how to accommodate device rotation, touch feedback, device resolution, and screen aspect ratios to fine-tune your web app experience on mobile devices.As an HTML/JavaScript developer you have several options available to you for publishing apps in the major app stores. Every platform has their own native option for app development. The problem with that approach is you greatly increase cost and code reuse is generally at a minimum and you generally have to learn a new language in the process thus increasing the time to market. In this talk I’ll take you through solutions available to develop, publish, and monetize your HTML/JS applications in the app economy and as an added bonus, how to cloud enable your HTML/JS apps.
