Make sure to go to the YouTube HTML5 page to turn on HTML5 video and turn off that horrible Flash
One of the perks of working at Pluralsight is getting to watch all the other great content put together by the other authors
Of course I prefer watching them streamed to my 32 inch LCD from my iPad through my AppleTV
Pluralsight published my new course on using HTML5 to build mobile applications the other day: http://www.pluralsight-training.net/microsoft/Courses/TableOfContents?courseName=native-mobile-apps-with-html5
A subscriber on Twitter questioned the title He thought it should have the term “Hybrid” in the title. After doing some google research – I decided he was correct – it is clear that from a “marketing” point-of-view a native app that uses HTML5 through a native component (UIWebView in the case of iOS, WebView in the case of Android, and the WebBrowser control in the case of Windows Phone 7) are commonly called “Hybrid” apps. So we changed the title of the course
From a technical point-of-view I find the term to be slightly misleading. Here is my definition of a “native” mobile application: A mobile application that can be deployed to the mobile device’s AppStore/Marketplace.
Delineating an app on any other technical basis I think confuses the issue more than clarifies it.
If you’ve been wondering where I am been – I’ve been putting down my thoughts about HTML5 development with native mobile apps – and its now live at Pluralsight!

I also cover responsive web design (media queries) and how that applies to mobile HTML5 development.
I also cover cool things like enabling the web inspector in the UIWebView by using the _enableRemoteInspector call.
