The fastest way to build apps that reach the largest number of screens is still the web. But if you need access to native device capabilities, the next best option is hybrid. Hybrid apps leverage 100% of the web developer skill set (HTML, JavaScript, CSS) while exposing device APIs to JavaScript via a native proxy. In this session from the recent Anglebrackets, I discuss the pros and cons of hybrid app development and how to determine if it's right for your mobile project. I also offer a hands-on look at how to use open source tools like Apache Cordova, commonly known as PhoneGap, and Kendo UI to create cross-platform apps that look and perform great on all devices.
