I work at Google, and for the past few years have been trying to improve Hybrid apps, contributing to Apache Cordova and Chrome. Just trying to figure this whole web-native thing out.


  • Chrome Apps for Mobile, using Apache Cordova
  • Time: TBD | Room: E-131
The landscape for hybrid web-native applications on mobile is changing. The quality of the web platform has improved tremendously, and the pace of change is actually increasing. I'll go over some of the history, present, and future of WebViews on Android and iOS, as well as describe our efforts to bring Chrome Apps to Mobile. What are Chrome Apps? When/why are they useful? What works, and what doesn't? Come find out.
