For the iOSOnRailsConf 2013 multiple talks have been selected. Although none of them had anything to do with Ruby on Rails, they all had close connections; using front-end technologies like Phonegap and Javascript to create mobile applications.

Writing applications for phones has been a daunting task since every platform uses it’s own language and API’s. PhoneGap will solve this problem for you by utilizing the browser capabilities. In this session we will see how we can turn a web based application into a native app. We will also look at possibilities to integrate native functionality, like the camera or accelerometer, in our application. The final part of the presentation is about deployment of these applications. Adobe offers a cloud based service called PhoneGap Build which easily builds your application for all platforms.
