Building mobile applications that work on both iOS and Android is easy with free and open source tools. Getting the best performance and user experience used to mean building with Java for Android, and Swift or Objective-C for iOS, but that’s like paying twice for the same thing. No one likes paying twice to get the same thing, do they?
Wouldn’t it be better to build your application once, and have it work cross platform? Wouldn’t you like to have 100% access to all native platform APIs, and get it with languages and syntaxes you already know? On a free and open source platform?
Come see how to do it in this session!
