Overview

Fuse has developed a declarative and intuitive JS/Markup approach to native mobile app development. We’ve taken the quick, dynamic workflow that JavaScript provides, and coupled it with a fully custom, native UI framework designed specifically for building beautiful mobile apps. All of this helps us to reduce iteration time between changes to an absolute minimum without sacrificing native performance, making app development faster, easier, and a heck of a lot more fun.

This lecture will get down and dirty with the ideas and technical details behind this approach, including many of the new and exciting possibilities it opens for us, like instant, on-device reload of code and markup, and specialized user interface primitives designed to succintly describe data presentation and animation in a way you only dreamed of with HTML5. All along the way, we’ll get live, hands-on experience working with these tools, on our devices, fully native, in real-time.
