DevCon5 Sessions Cover All Things HTML5, Apps and Enterprise Mobility

The name of the game today is mobile. According to research from New Relic, an application performance management and monitoring company, the average person checks their phone every 6.5 minutes, more smartphones are activated each day than babies born and the average number of apps on a smartphone is 41.

When it comes to developing apps in today’s mobile world, the question becomes, “Native or HTML5?” HTML5 is the latest version of the markup language for the Web, and HTML5 apps do not need to be built from scratch for each operating system, such as iOS or Android (NewsAlert).

The agenda for DevCon5, a hands-on conference for HTML5 and mobile app developers, was recently unveiled and includes sessions based on how HTML5 impacts different business models and mobile apps.

In addition to a keynote presentation from Margaret Schmidt, the chief design officer and VP of design and engineering at TiVo (News Alert), sessions at DevCon5 cover a range of topics, including graphics, developing high-performance websites and apps with JavaScript and HTML5, video calling with WebRTC, enterprise apps, using responsive and adaptive techniques, app and device management, when to go native and the future of HTML5.

“DevCon5 reflects the level of importance mobile development has to have in every organization regardless of their audience demographics,” said Carl Ford (NewsAlert), CEO of Crossfire Media and executive director of DevCon5 Content and Community. “We used to say no one knows you’re a dog on the Internet, these days everyone sees who you are, what you do and judges based on how well you display it to them. Your website and your mobile apps may not be exactly the same but all your development whether native or Web will have a suite of HTML5 components be it HTML5, CSS3, and/or .JS solutions.”

DevCon5 takes place Dec. 10-11 at the Hilton Los Angeles in Universal City, Calif. The event is ideal for creators of applications and solutions for the Internet, developers, designers, enterprise architects, C-level executives, information technologists, system managers, network planners, strategists and more.

“The HTML5 opportunity is enormous, and we have seen growing momentum over the past few events,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC (NewsAlert), in a statement. “At the Los Angeles event, it will be clear: the time for HTML5 is now. Sessions will reflect this change in thinking, moving from HTML5 limitations to the extreme opportunity this revolutionary technology presents.”
