Senior Software Engineer at VMware
With the rising prevalence of smart mobile platforms such as iPhone, Android, and Web OS, the desire for rich mobile clients as another means of accessing enterprise services cannot be ignored.
In this session, we will explore the current mobile development landscape and discuss what is available in open source to support this increasingly important paradigm. We will examine the benefits and tradeoffs of native mobile client development vs. web-based mobile client development, and we will explore some of the emerging cross-platform options such as PhoneGap. Finally, we will look at the strategies for connecting mobile clients to back-end services, such as the consumption of RESTful services, authentication and authorization via OAuth, and server-push style messaging.
