USITAA IT Seminar – Will the Web Win?


The University of Sydney IT Alumni Association (USITAA)

Speaker: Dr. Rainer Wasinger

This talk takes the listener on an insightful journey that analyses some of the for and against for using web technologies and native platform technologies in the creation of today’s modern (and growingly mobile) applications.

Dr. Rainer Wasinger explores the battle between native apps and the web; the broad scope of coverage that the term mobile can be taken to refer to today (including devices like mobile phones, in-car consoles, set-top boxes, surface computing); some of the more commonly used technologies that have come to support the web and native camps, as too the open/proprietary nature of these technologies; and some statistics on penetration/usage rates for browsers, browser plugins, and mobile platforms.
