State of Mobile Development
Trekanten, Monday 13:55 - 14:45

It’s 2019 & developers have a lot of choice in how to build mobile apps. However, mobile strategy needs to be driven by type of app, platform reach, developer expertise and need for code reuse. Is the Cordova hybrid route still an option? Have PWAs matured enough to prove the web as a distribution medium? What are key factors that demand native mobile apps for iOS/Android/UWP? Developers also want to leverage preferred technology stacks - .NET or JavaScript. Is Xamarin the solve-it-all for .NET mobile development? How do NativeScript & React Native fare for JS Native apps? How does WebAssembly play in the mobile space? What about Flutter or Uno?

The goal is to make truly cross-platform mobile apps - from single code base with easy code sharing. With matured tooling in each stack, the technology choice should not matter as much. Let’s recap options, glimpse into the future and equip ourselves to build amazing mobile apps.
