Open Source Junction 3: Mobile Technologies and the Cloud
DevCSI’s Mahendra Mahey recently attended the OSS Watch event Open Source Junction 3, which focussed on the on Mobile Web and the Cloud.
You can find our more about the event at the event webpage and read the full coverage from the event at on their live blog. Gabriel Hanganu also provides a useful overview of the issues in this blog post about the event.
The event led to a number of really useful conversations, including discussions with the OMELETTE project and John Wards from PhoneGap. We’d like to thank the organisers for gathering together such an interesting group of people and speakers.
It has been over a year since DevCSI last ran a mobile web hack event, and the discussions at Open Source Junction 3 have inspired us to revisit the area. Of particular interest is the growing strength of tools like PhoneGap that make mobile web development easier help those on the fringes of web development (with a knowledge of HTML and CSS) to build mobile sites.
We are in the early planning stages at the moment, but if you like to contribute by giving a lightning talk or suggesting particular issues you think it would be useful to cover at such an event, then please leave a comment or send a tweet to @devcsi.
