I currently work as a Software Architect for the LDS Church where I have been influential in pushing the web as a strong platform for building applications. I am the founder and current manager of the Utah Google Developer Group where I enjoy interacting with other individuals who are passionate about learning technology. I have over a decade of experience as a developer and a B.S in Computer Science from Utah Valley University.
I am grateful to those many who have shared their knowledge, experience and criticism with me along the way. I believe the Web is incredibly successful because it is an open platform and learning should follow in that same spirit. I look forward to sharing what I have learned with you, but most of all I look forward to learning from you.
The WebAPI is an effort by Mozilla, Apple and Google to bring many of the features and API's that are often thought only possible to do in native apps, to the web. This effort, which promises to deliver APIs to web developers that allow access to device hardware and features such as the camera, microphone, telephone, SMS, geolocation, storage, NFC, power management and much more. The gap between the capabilities of native apps and web apps is quickly closing and no longer should you feel second class to those native poster-childs.
Come learn more about what your browser can do that you didn't know it could. Stand up for the web and deliver a body blow (figuratively, of course) the next time someone tells you your web app can't compete with their native one.
