HTML5 vs. Native Applications, The Presentation

05 Mar 2011 Read in about 1 minute

This slide deck was prepared for my guest lecture at the University of Nebraska-Omaha’s spring course on Mobile Application Development (BSAD 8916-005). The course was developed in partnership with Google’s University Relations program and included a variety of business and management students with limited programming experience. My lecture was approximately six weeks into the course, and the students had already developed a few simple Android applications. My task was to convince them that HTML5 and Web Development is a viable alternative to native application development, for most use cases.

(I appreciate the irony of sharing these slides using the flash plugin)

If there’s demand, I do have a video of the talk. Let me know and I can do a bit more work to package the video and upload it.
