Sencha Kicks Off Free Mobile App Development Roadshow

Sencha, the industry leader in HTML5 development, schedules five free workshops throughout the United States to help developers get up to speed on building apps based on open standards.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.: Recent industry events have forced developers to reevaluate their platform choices, and HTML5 is the clear victor in the battle between open standards and proprietary technologies. To help them make the transition to HTML5, Sencha is hosting a national roadshow to introduce developers to the technology that has emerged as the new standard in mobile app development.

“It’s looking like November 2011 could well be the tipping point for the validation of HTML5, with tectonic shifts toward open Web standards being announced by some of the largest players in the industry,” said Michael Mullany, CEO of Sencha. “We’re seeing increasing interest from developers eager to learn how to migrate to HTML5 from various proprietary platforms, and we’re eager to connect with them and get them up to speed on open standards and our technologies. We invite developers to attend our free workshops and learn about HTML5 and Sencha’s SDKs, tools and cloud services in a collaborative and fun environment with Sencha experts.”
