Greane Tree Technology CTO Joseph Payette gave our latest “Lunch & Learn” presentation. With the number of tools and frameworks for cross platform mobile application development increasing every year, it can be a challenge to determine the best fit technology for a mobile project. All of these tools and frameworks have their advantages and disadvantages, as they leverage different mechanisms for abstracting differences across mobile devices in an effort to provide a single platform for rapid application development. To bring order to the various options at hand, Joe reviewed mobile application architectures (native, hybrid, and HTML5), and explored and compared a few hybrid tools and frameworks, namely PhoneGap (, Appcelerator (, and MoSync ( Joe’s mobile application development presentation includes sample code for these three tools and frameworks.

The Lunch and Learn series is a regular event where we discuss topics of interest to our projects and clients. Last month Chad Calhoun explored Git Interactive Techniques.
