They are so similar: Web and Mobile apps. What a nice option to use our web development experience (JavaScript, to be specific) to create cross-platform native-like applications. Is it that simple? What are the pros and cons of mobile web VS native? What is the difference between hybrid mobile apps, progressive web apps and JavaScript-compiled-to-native ones? Let’s find the answers together!Attendees will get an overview of modern concepts for building web-based mobile applications, pros and cons from tech and business sides. Bonus: some practical advices on when to go for this option.First I’ll give an idea: to use our JavaScript code for creating mobile applications. I’ll mention and demonstrate some frameworks from those days. Right after I’ll "destroy" this idea with some serious counter-arguments. Then I’ll explain what could the renaissance of mobile web idea look like: using web workers, creating progressive web applications and compiling to real native code using some next generation frameworks. For the each option I’ll give advantages/disadvantages from both tech and business points of view so both developers and managers will get a big picture of today’s (and tomorrow’s) possibilities of the mentioned concept.

Stay tuned!
