Kevin Benedict's What's New in HTML5 - Week of October 21, 2012


I gave a presentation on SMAC (social, mobile, analytics and cloud) at a large high tech conference this week in Scottsdale, AZ.  During my presentation I surveyed the audience by a show of hands and asked how many were planning to pre-dominantly develop using HTML5 (or HTML5 hybrid apps), and how many were planning to use native.  About two thirds were planning to use HTML5 for their app development projects.

Also last week, I interviewed Tony Kueh, SAP's Head of Mobile Platform Solutions and Strategies about HTML5 vendors and SAP's open strategy for working with them in this video interview.  It is interesting who SAP picked to work with around HTML5 development.
