|Session Title||Cross-Platform Mobile Development with DSLs
|Session Type||Case Study
Developing great apps for mobile platforms like Android, iOS, Windows Phone 7 or the mobile web is a challenging task: you have to cope with limited resources, small screens and spotty connectivity. Designing a great app for one platform is challenging enough, delivering cross-platform apps even more so! A number of different approaches have been thought out, most of them using web technologies as an abstraction layer.
