Cross Platform vs Native Development by Anthony Heath

We'll compare cross-platform vs native development by discussing the benefits and trade-offs. Introducing the most popular cross-platform frameworks with examples of them in action. Frameworks that will be reviewed: React Native, Ionic, Xamarin, Electron, Unity, Flutter, PhoneGap, NativeScript. If time allows, we'll discuss how modern Progressive Web Apps (PWA) can often fill the need depending on your requirements.

We'll be leaving open space at the end of our night for individuals to present projects that they are working on. This will be an opportunity to show off your latest work or to get feedback on that one hard issue in your system.
