As the factory of the world, China has a huge number of local smart phone manufacturers. Therefore, the fragmentation of mobile devices in China is much more serious than anywhere else in the world. Beside the well-known brands such as Samsung and Apple, there are hundreds of Android device manufacturers and many others that customize Android ROMs. In addition, skilled developers with the ability to build native apps are scarce. These factors have made app development much more complicated in China. What we really need is a way to build apps with good experience more efficiently and at a lower cost. In this session I will introduce the development of HTML5 & Hybrid Apps in China and how we can help solve the problems at hand.
