    very important session and lessions…
    I was already doing 10-4-2 things…
    but 3 and 1 were eye openers….esp JQM because tried Jqm in one project too…

    But I have a question “Do you really need that framework”..=>
    What about angularjs don’t we really need that…?

    I just your presentation and your PhoneGap Tutorial.
    In your presentation you present the following rule:

    -Don’t wait for data to display the UI

    In your PhoneGap Tutorial you are doing the opposite…[1]), function(employee) {
    self.slidePage(new EmployeeView(employee).render());

    Can I assume that if it’s on a local storage I can bend this rule?

    Thanks for sharing this tips! Great presentation :)

    I have a question about css sprite sheet. What is better (in term of performance) between using image css sprite sheet and image font?

    Hello Cristophe,

    In one of my project I need to modify the height of a view and move some other views down with an animation. Will be this transitions of height hardware accelerated if I will put transalde3d on that element? I’m asking this because it seem it will not be, my animation is slow.

    Thank you,
