MOSQUITO project partners are organizing their second event around mobile application fragmentation in Paris, France (29-31 May 2012).

Over the three days, attend and get an unique chance to:

  • Listen to current major issues in the mobile world during the one day workshop: major stakeholders will be there to explain their view on the mobile fragmentation issues and how they overcome them. Real use cases will be presented as well. Check out the agenda!

  • Participate to an HTML5 training conducted by W3C staff.

  • Test mobile HTML5 applications in real world situations on a wide variety of devices through various network configurations during the 2-days interop event.

  • Promote your brand to boost the mobile market and develop the successful ecosystem.

  • Check state of the art web technologies: HTML5, ...

Mobile web challenges
Fragmentation or diversity (workshop)

All of us acknowledge that the native app ecosystem is fragmented and majority of the industry now considers this paradigm as a race between two ecosystems. On the other hand, mobile web is gaining sustained industry interest in a bid to become a credible alternative, in the war of competing mobile operating systems.

The desire to reach across multiple platforms is also proving be its own anathema as different organizations have taken their own mobile app implementation approaches. To ensure that mobile web remains globally acceptable form of communication and delivery, there is a strong need to address interoperability and fragmentation through standardisation.

The workshop on HTML5 and mobile web aims to explore these issues by bringing together standards bodies, industry and the developer community.

Location

The event will be held at Hotel Pullman Montparnasse.

Interop & HTML5 training HTML5 in practise

 

The number of Web technologies implemented in a Web browser has grown from a handful of specifications to more than a hundred, in part thanks to the new wave of developments in the Open Web Platform. The list includes HTML5, CSS specifications, SVG, Web Fonts, as well as a growing list of APIs (Geolocation, IndexedDB, Web Sockets, for instance). The Standards for Web Applications on Mobile roadmap details the current state and roadmap of the set of technologies that are particularly relevant on mobile devices.

As the number of technologies increases, as new mobile devices get produced, the demand for interoperability between Web technologies is key to the long-term success of the Open Web Platform.

For years, W3C Working Groups have been testing standards-to-be following their own methods with little to no coordination between groups. However, technologies like HTML, CSS and APIs need to be tested in the same user agents, often in combinaison. To improve coordination, the W3C has announced the creation of a generic Web testing activity set to develop a common testing framework that can be used across working groups, propose guidelines to create testable specifications and test suites, and coordinate test suite developments.

The event will be held in Orange Labs facilities located in Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.
