[Infragistics] Mihail Mateev / Friday, January 31, 2014

Infragistics Friends group (Bulgarian BI PASS Chapter) and jQuery Sofia with the help of Infragistics Inc.  organized a presentation on the following topic: PhoneGap vs WinJS for Windows Store Apps .

The event was held on Thursday, January 30th, 2014 at Infragistics Bulgaria Office, 110B, Simeonovsko Shosse Bul., Sofia, Bulgaria. The presentation was prepared by the Evangelism team in Sofia with a major lecturer Damyan Petev (Technical Evangelist @ Infragistics) with my involvement on PhoneGap / Cordova related content.

This lecture was a comparison of these two technologies that WEB developers can use to create Windows Store Apps. . Attendees learned about the different features of both technologies when creating Windows 8.x applications.

Participants understood that WinJS vs PhoneGap is a matter of API preference and code portability and both platforms are appropriate to build Windows Store applications. Presenters demonstrated specifics of the WinJS security model and possible solutions with jQuery 2.x Demos included examples with jQuery UI and Ignite UI
