If building and maintaining modern native apps for Windows, iOS, and Android is too expensive you might consider building a smart client modern app using HTML5 and JavaScript. In this session you'll learn how to leverage various JavaScript libraries and the same Azure mobile services and app server used by the native apps to build a rich JavaScript app that runs in modern browsers and provides a comparable user experience to any native app. Perhaps more importantly you'll learn the pros and cons of JavaScript development when compared to native development, having the opportunity to see the same functionality in JavaScript as you've seen for Android, iPad, and Windows.
