Android development is red hot, but to achieve true commercial success, developers must also address the 2.5B non-Android client devices in the market. This is often easier said than done as it’s a headache to recode for different user interfaces and platform capabilities, and effectively validate apps across the full breadth of devices.
Intel feels your pain. Come and learn about cross-platform frameworks and tool sets for HTML5 and native (C++/Java) apps that allow developers to leverage their Android skills and codebase to deliver consistent and compelling experiences across client operating systems and device architectures. We’ll explore common issues and demonstrate remedies to reach the entire market.
