PhoneGap Day EU 2015: Crosswalk - Unleash the fury of web innovation in your Android app today

A big thanks to everyone who was able to make it to PhoneGap Day EU 2015 in Amsterdam. We’ll be posting more videos from the conference so check back on our blog and Youtube channel.

Today we’re sharing a great session by our friends at Crosswalk that can help you navigate the fragmented Android market.

Web technologies are improving at a rapid pace. New features such as responsive design, cloud services, WebRTC, WebGL and Canvas provide developers with a great deal of potential. However, leveraging these features in a fragmented Android market is difficult, and oft-times impossible given the diversity of the various platform versions and capabilities. This session introduces the Crosswalk Project, an open-source, Chromium-based, HTML5 runtime that opens up the full set of leading-edge web innovations to Android developers and greatly reduces the fragmentation limitations. The Crosswalk Project is already available as a Cordova plugin so build and deploy steps are right at your fingertips.
