Enterprise and mobile developers converge on HTML5 and Sencha “open Web” technologies
As HTML5 increasingly becomes the accepted basis for next-generation applications, Sencha has experienced record growth in its developer community, with over 350,000 community members now registered and a global developer base of more than 2 million developers in 201 countries. Mobile developers lead the growth in adoption of Sencha technologies, with downloads of Sencha Touch, the Sencha framework for mobile HTML5, now approaching one million — adding to the nearly five million combined downloads of Sencha technologies.
