Transcripts from PhoneGap Session

This post is more than 2 years old.

First off - a huge thank you to everyone who came to our PhoneGap Open Q and A today. We had more than 50 attendees for most of the two hour block which I think is a great turnout. We even had a troll (for a few minutes), so that means we must be doing something right!

The questions were very interesting. I noticed lots of attention around notifications and push, two areas I've not really dug into yet. I also noticed a few questions on the front-facing camera. (According to Andrew, on devices with two cameras, the native UI should simply prompt you when you request the camera.)

The Q and A transcript, as well as the more random general chat, are attached as zip files below.

As always - if you have any feedback about the session concerning how we could improve it, just let me know in the comments below.

p.s. I had a few requests for plain text versions. Here is a plain text version of the Q and A and here is a plain text version of the chat.

Why, you're welcome! I hope you learned something - that quality matters more than the race to the bottom...

@Pogo: If you are interested in honest conversations about this topic, I'm open to it, but you did not provide that. You acted like a troll, and as far as I'm concerned, you are on. I'm willing to be proved otherwise, but till then, sorry, your opinions mean nothing to me.

@pogo, I would think that customer satisfaction should be what matters the most. And I'm not sure I understand your "race to the bottom" argument, care to elaborate on that?

Any chance on a notification demo ;-)

You mean the notification APIs?
